Lil Wayne’s Professed Drug Addictions and Hospitalization is a Warning about the Dangers of Codeine

Filed under: BizTechNews,Commentary |

One of the greatest marketing tools for drug addiction these days have been hip-hop artists who rap about “popping Mollys,” “sipping sizzurp,” and drinking until they pass out every single night.  But these drug addictions can cause serious long-term damage in those who are affected, and should not be taken lightly.  The recent hospitalizations of popular rappers Rick Ross and Lil Wayne have involved serious seizures, and both of these men aren’t expected to live long lives due to embracing a dangerous and counter-productive lifestyle.

There are serious side effects to serious codeine consumption, and Lil Wayne regularly admits that he loves to consume codeine as part of the purple “drank” that is very popular in the south.  According to Emedicine Health, here are some side-effects to extreme codeine consumption:


  • slow heart rate, weak pulse, fainting, shallow breathing;
  • feeling like you might pass out;
  • confusion, agitation, hallucinations, unusual thoughts or behavior;
  • feelings of extreme happiness or sadness;
  • seizure (convulsions); or
  • problems with urination.

Less serious side effects include:

  • feeling dizzy or drowsy;
  • nausea, vomiting, stomach pain,;
  • constipation;
  • sweating; or
  • mild itching or rash

Maybe these drugs should not be taken lightly. There is also the question of whether or not hip-hop artists are doing the world a favor when they serve as walking billboards for extreme drug and alcohol use.  The recent reports about Lil Wayne being on his death bed and having his stomach pumped due to drug use are being refuted.  But one thing that remains true is that, according to doctors, if he continues to use drugs at this rate, he is probably digging himself into an early grave.

  1. He has volunteered to the killing of himself in the name of “Hip Hop Fame”, just as those before him in the name of “Heavy Metal Fame”, and the ignorance continues.

  2. Who gives damn certainly not me. The minute this Nigger Maggot is gone the better our people will be with one less piece of Fucking Trash to spread his FiltH to our young children. The sooner they get this Motherfucka in the ground the better off we’ll all be and anyone and everyone just like him. They can all OD or catch a bullet as far as I care. Whatever can get them to hell the fastest.

    FUCK THIS SCUMBAG NIGGER.

    NOW LET ME TELL YOU HOW I REALLY FEEL.

    • From what the venom coming out of your mouth is far more dangerous or at the very least no different than the venom coming out of his mouth. We can at least tell our children that what he does is just entertainment. You on the other hand have no excuse.

    • WOW, tell people how you really feel, but I agree…. This walking piece of trash is just another chalk out-line of an empty sewer. This piece of the human dump has the nerve to have insulted the life of Emmit Teel. Wayne is not stupid, just corrupt…

  5. I wonder how can certain black people with any real good basic common sense make any type of excuse for this person’s overall behavior or any other soc-called thug gangsta BS clown,minstrel rapper of today.
    Without a doubt his music and his twisted updated slave type image has been used against a vast % of black people on a large scale all over the country.
    So he got his self addicted to cough medicine ?
    I never got addicted to crack and had more than enough commonsense to never try it since I knew then,like now it was a genocide drug designed to attack poor black people mainly in the hood.
    Go read the history as to how opiuim was used to destroy and suppress and oppress the chinese.
    How come black people who claim to be smart when it comes to bible and religion can’t seem to figure out when slavemaster is running a game on them.

  6. This has been a problem in the south, especially Houston Tx, for decades. Codiene & Promethazine..aka syrup,drank,schoolboy scotch,lean,ect. has killed rapper “Big Moe”(Houston…song “Purple Stuff),Dj Screw( inventor of the chopped & screwed sound), and Pimp C(UGK). In black community in Houston, it’s an epidemic and been going since the 60′s. I hope he’s true about getting help to conquer the addiction. If not, he’ll join the likes of Biggie,Pac, Big Pun, Heavy D,Guru,Nate Dogg, ect, having a huge concert in heaven.
    Get well & Get help asap.

  7. I thought the Emmit Till verse was kind of funny. You see, I have a wicked, kind of twisted sense of humor. That’s just who I am. However, when it comes to destroying my brain and body with drugs and alcohol, that is where I draw the line. This idiot has shot himself in the chest and drank all kinds of concoctions from the internet and there is no telling what other stupid things he has done. He is definitely an idiot.

  10. The thing I pity is that our youth truly believes this person has talent. It’s the saddest thing I’ve ever witness. We have teach our youth there is no rewards for being a ass.
