Soulja Boy is opening up about his decision to stop drinking lean, a dangerous mixture of prescription-strength cough medicine that contains codeine, soft drinks and sometimes candy.

During an interview on Hot 97’s “Ebro In The Morning,” the “Kiss Me Thru The Phone” emcee revealed that he hasn’t drunk the substance in a few years. “Yeah, I mean I wouldn’t want to speak on that on the radio, but I will out of respect for you, Ebro and Rosenberg, and for my fans that’s tuned in,” Soulja said. “I was sipping lean, you know what I’m saying? I was sipping lean, man. I was mixing lean with soda and drinking it. I shook that. … I haven’t drunk lean in around, like, two years or three years.”

He also spoke about the unhealthy side effects of drinking lean, which included impacting his mood.

“I feel like that’s what was kind of deteriorating my moods and altering my thoughts and kind of slowing me down, but I wasn’t noticing it until, like, I completely got off of it,” he added. “Then I was like, ‘Man, I can move faster, I can think clearer, I can do this.’ It was like I started waking up and it was crazy.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Big Draco spoke about owning his masters, producing hits for Nicki Minaj and how he deserves more credit for making the BAPE clothing brand widespread in the hip hop community. “Soulja Boy put BAPE on. Period,” he said.

Back in March, REVOLT reported that the “She Make It Clap” rapper demanded his flowers from Drake, who thanked Bow Wow for paving the way for him. “That nigga Drake is hilarious,” he tweeted. “Dude stole my whole bar then thanked Bow Wow.” His tweet referenced his infamous 2019 interview on “The Breakfast Club” where he said that the Toronto native stole his bars for his Lil Wayne-assisted single “Miss Me.”
