In a video recently unearthed from an interview with Fader magazine, the successful weekend talks about the drugs he had used in the past, while prefiguring his premature death.
Mixing a purple drink that is believed to be sizzurp based on codeine, a concoction of cough syrup and soda, the star said he could never say no when he was offered substances.
He said: I'm always like, if someone is like & # 39; Do you want to try this? & # 39; I'm just like, yes, of course. And then it gives you a bit of luck if you have a lot of money because if you try a medication, you like it, you can buy it in large quantity. "
"So I did everything." At one point, the grass did not relax everything, it made me more paranoid that all this happened.
Cooling: In a video recently unearthed from an interview with Fader Magazine, the weekend singer talks about the drugs he was using, pretending to foreshadow his premature death.
"So I needed a medication that would anesthetize you a bit, if you want, and less, in your head."
"I think that's what caused me other drugs, because I hate being sober." I wanted a medication to do.
Denying that he took drugs at the present time, he said: "Let me clarify a couple of things here. There's been a lot of talk about me taking drugs and they're looking at me, do I look like I'm taking drugs?
& # 39; Not on drugs. The drugs are in me. That was a date f ***** g. That was the date. "
The interview also presents him talking about an overdose.
He said: I'd rather be the white and cheesy rapper than the mess that can not even get out of his house.
& # 39; The overdose is just not great. There is no legendary romance. It does not go down in history because it has an overdose. You only die
