Potion in my sprite, then my night slows... down, down
Purple drank/lean is a very addictive drug. The prescription-strength cough syrup used in purple drank contains codeine and promethazine, and is usually mixed with ingredients such as the soft drink Sprite or Mountain Dew.
Purple drank has had a large influence on Mac’s music style. It has had a bad influence on Mac as a person, but it made his music so much better and meaningfull. Mac started drinking lean during the making of Macadelic when one of his best friends, Reuben Eli Mitrani, died. Since Macadelic, Mac’s music style went in a totally different direction. Lean left his footprints all over Macadelic and Mac’s second studio album Watching Movies With The Sound Off.
When drinking lean, time can seem to go by very slow.
