Gucci Mane: I’m Addicted to Drinking “Lean” and “Ashamed” of My Behavior

Gucci Mane took to Twitter on Sunday to apologize for his recent erratic behavior and admit that he’s been addicted to drinking “lean” — the infamous purple ‘sizzurp’ drink — for a decade.
The rapper’s latest arrest came earlier this month, when he allegedly threatened cops while carrying a gun and marijuana.
In a series of dramatic tweets on Sunday, Mane took responsibility for his pattern of bad behavior and explained its origins:
“Woke up the other day out this hospital bed & I’m so embarrassed & ashamed of my behavior that was brought to my attention. I just wanna man up right now & take this time to apologize to my family, friends, the industry & most of all my fans. I’m SORRY!
I’ve been drinking lean for 10plus years & I must admit it has destroyed me. I wanna be the first rapper to admit I’m addicted to lean & that sh*t ain’t no joke. I can barely remember all the things I’ve done & said. However there’s no excuse.
I’m currently incarcerated but I will be going to rehab because I need help. I wanna thank everyone that has stood by me during this difficult time. Please keep me in your prayers. I wanna personally apologize to birdman ross & drake. Dem my n*ggas. I 100% regret my words & actions.”
There you have it.
