Pimp C, Sipping that Syrup

The tox tests are back on Pimp C, and they reveal that he had taken a codeine and promethazine cough syrup before his death. That, combined with his sleep apnea, caused his death. Promethazine and codeine cough syrup is better known as syrup, purple drank, and lean, and is what all of the Houston rappers drink. It's also what killed DJ Screw, the pioneer of the slowed down "Screwed and Chopped" genre of hip hop. Syrup is nasty for you. Codeine is not something you want to be fucking with on a regular basis, especially with lots of booze. God knows the chemical concoctions those guys put into their bodies - between the lean, the hennessey, the ecstasy and the weed, they put Scottish ravers to shame.
