In the wake of Mac Miller‘s death from an apparent overdose, popular rapper, Shad Moss, better known as Bow Wow, has broken his silence on his own previous drug addiction.

In a series of tweets on Monday, the rapper said he almost died as a result of the addiction.

While encouraging his followers to stay away from drugs, Bow Wow admitted to using lean, a combination of promethazine, codeine and soft drinks, “every day” about 10 years ago.

He further said he was high from drinking lean every day while working on his 2007 album with singer Omarion, Face Off.

“To the youth- Stop with these dumb a— drugs,” he began on Twitter. 

“I’m going to let something out. When me and Omarion worked on FACE OFF album. I was high off lean everyday! When yall saw me on BET going off on torae I was high off lean.

“My attitude everything changed. My fans started to…Turn on me my family too. I never promoted lean in my songs. The whole time I was on the UCP tour with Chris I WAS SIPPING 4’s at least 7 times a day. I was addicted until our show in Cincinnati.. I came off stg and passed out woke up in the hospital I was having withdraws.

“I never felt a pain like that ever. It was summer but I was walking round with 3 hoodies on because I was so cold. I missed the Chicago show of that tour Baltimore show BECAUSE I WAS F***ING HIGH AND SICK!!!! that sh*t is not cool and I was doing it to be cool! (sic).”

“Kick that sh**!” he stressed. “Be a good son or daughter. Be the best you. Ima start being more vocal. We gotta save the youth from going out early. Parents watch your kids. Explain to them. We want y’all to live man. I almost died f**king with syrup. To this day I’m affected, my stomach will never be the same and it hasn’t been. DRUG FREE IS THE WAY TO BE! Smarten up tighten up out here. We can’t lose no more of you. Not one! I love all y’all. The young artist all the kids around the world… don’t follow a trend. Break the cycle. PEACE.”

“Go back and watch the Face Off show BET gave us!” he wrote. “Look how dumb I looked. My ranting, I was angry every day. They try to protect the truth by saying I was dehydrated… nawww bro. I WAS HIGH OFF PROMETHAZINE CODEINE! Actavis. SAY NO TO THESE DRUGS.”
