Lil Wayne Trying To Get Over His Syrup Addiction


Lil Wayne, known to carry Styrofoam cups around constantly, is finally taking the steps necessary to get himself off the southern cocktail known as Syrup, or sizzurp.

"I saw a doctor - he gave me pills, told me, 'This is what you take to get off it,'" Wayne said. "I never tried them. If them b**ches work, then I probably gotta start. Other than that, it's gonna be hard. What a n*gga told me to do is start lessening my amount. So what I do, I tell motherf*ckers as to pour it for me instead of me pouring it...I be patient.'" As told to Vibe Magazine (May 2008 Issue)
