Following Mac Miller’s apparent overdose on Friday, Bow Wow has opened up about his own struggles with substance abuse.
Bow Wow revealed shocking news on Twitter earlier today about his own struggles with addiction. The rapper revealed that during his time working on Face Off with Omarion, he was high off of lean every single day.
“To the youth- Stop with these dumb ass drugs. Im 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.

I was addicted until our show in Cincinnati.. i came off stg and passed out woke up in the hospital i was having withdraws.”
He revealed that his addiction to lean caused him to deal with extreme withdrawals and made him miss a show in Chicago and Baltimore on the UCP tour. The rapper revealed that while he was taping his show on BET with Omarian, he was high off of syrup. His behavior was a reflection of his use of drugs, although the network tried to claim that he was dehydrated.
