Remember sip slow, live fast
Following the culture of the South and the rappers that sipped lean before Wayne, he stresses taking your time with the drink and enjoy the effects that it has on you. Sipping lean to fast makes you drowsy and will knock you out, which is not an enjoyable experience and there is the possibility of overdosing from it.
Wayne also sees the dangers of the drug that is so glorified in the rap industry. With the death of his dear friend Pimp C and many others, along with his recent run in with death (which was rumored to be caused by his lean addiction), he wants people that sip lean to be careful when doing so.
He isn’t telling those who sip to stop, just to watch yourself when doing so and be reckless in different areas, such as being reckless on a verse. Weezy discusses sipping lean below.
