Gucci Mane Man’s Up to Face His Long-Time Addiction
Offering up a dramatic and seemingly sincere apology to friends and fans alike, Gucci Mane tweeted about his problems with drinking and erratic behavior as a result.
The 33-year-old rap artist claimed an addiction to “Lean,” the ill-famed purple “sizzurp” drink for more than ten years now, and stated that it is time to stop.
Part of his long tweet read, “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 10 plus 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.”
