Rapper Bow Wow reveals he 'almost died' from addiction to cough syrup

Bow Wow is opening up about a drug addiction that he “almost died” from.

In a series of tweets Sunday, the 31-year-old rapper – born Shad Moss – chronicled being hooked on cough syrup (also known as lean) during pivotal parts of his career.

“Im going to let something out. When me and Omarion worked on FACE OFF album. I was high off lean everyday!” he tweeted, referencing his 2007 joint album with the former B2K singer, which Moss recorded in his early 20s.

He said his family and fans “started to turn on me” because of the addiction, which came to a tipping point when he fainted while touring with singer Chris Brown that same year.

He continued: “I WAS SIPPING 4’s atleast 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.”

Moss used his own experience with addiction as a warning to the younger generation of fans days after Mac Miller’s sudden death Friday. (Miller reportedly struggled with substance abuse.)

“That (expletive) is not cool and i was doing it to be cool!” Moss tweeted. “DRUG FREE IS THE WAY TO BE! We cant lose no more of you. Not one! dont follow a trend. Break the cycle.”
