Let's slow it down like we're on the syrup

from Kanye West (Ft. Lupe Fiasco) – Touch the Sky Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Cough syrup mixed with grape soda, collectively called “purpledrank”, is a common drink in the South…just ask Lil Wayne. It is said to “slow down the world” because of the effects it has on you when you consume it.

The effect of purple drank is later emulated in the outro to “Drive Slow”, where the song’s hook is slowed down.
