On Monday, Bow Wow took to social media with an important message for his followers.

He revealed that he was high off of lean almost every day while working on his joint album with Omarion. He shared a clip from a studio session while making the album to show the effects lean had on his behavior at the time.

He said, “I was high off lean EVERY DAY, EVERY SECOND of my life while doing this album with @omarion and smoking spending damn near 2500 on weed a week!” Even he knew I was out of my mind! What’s in my hand? Punch with syrup! The whole UCP TOUR WITH CHRIS I WAS HIGH AND SICK!”

He continued to reveal that he once missed a show in Chicago and Baltimore because he was in the hospital suffering from his addiction. “My body had too much codeine in it, to this day my stomach will never feel the same nor digest the same.”

Pleading with his followers he said, “I WAS A F*CKING DRUG ADDICT at 19-20 Kids STOP THE DRUGS STOP THE PILL POPPING. We want you here. You have so much life. I never thought rapping about my addiction in a song is what I wanted so I kept it private but now after all these yrs, ya’ll see why I was so angry during this point of my life. SAY NO! Please SAY NO! This coming from your young og boweezy.”
