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.
