This story comes to us from World Star Hip Hop, featured in a video format, of a news reporter discussing the hip hop culture as it relates to Codeine. Codeine is in the same drug class as morphine, is also called promethazine, and is often referred as, “That Drank”, “Purple Drank”, “Sizzurp”, “Purple Stuff”, “Lean”, and “Syrup”.
Purple Stuff has been alleged to have caused the death of Port Arthur’s Pimp C, & Houston’s D.J. Screw to name a few.
