Wiz Khalifa

Rapper Wiz Khalifa, 30, is using his substantial platform to warn vulnerable youth about the dangers of popping pills and sipping Lean or Sizzurp.

Wiz, an enthusiastic pothead who was seen arriving at the gym in Los Angeles last week, said he is speaking out about street drugs because there are too many young people following trends.

"I was doing a little bit of thinking because I like to think a lot," he said in a video. "And you know, when a lot of people follow one trend or find themselves doing the same thing that everybody else is doing, you don't really get somebody who speaks for the other side. So I'm just going to go head and speak for the other side. Lean is lame."

"[This] is not for the lean sippers, don't get in your feelings. This is for the people who don't f--k with that sh-t, feel empowered. Know, lean is definitely lame" he said.


#wizkhalifa says lean is lame - do you agree?

    That's a good positive message to spread. ????

    "I was doing a little bit of thinking because I like to think a lot"

    I hate when people say that because it's always followed by some ignorant ish but that was actually good advice

  • Wow

    Wow. This man promotes weed smoking heavily to our youth. Weed is a drug and if you’re not growing it yourself it may be sprayed and laced. Let’s hear him discuss that. He won’t becsuse he wants all those lean sippers to quit that and only smoke weed. Smoking weed isn’t a very good message to be pushing to our youth either, but black fools will clap and say he’s a positive man. What a joke.

  • CookieMobster

    Lean is lame. So is any drug if you ask me.

  • Marlika

    Good for him. The conversation has to start somewhere.

    Can someone give this man a sammish??????

  • You Could Never

    Love you Wiz. You do you. Yes you are a pot head but there are worse things.

  • Rayne

    Is he going to the gym to smoke right now? Cause what is he working on?

  • HoneyyGoodMoneyy_

    every time i think Wiz can't get any skinnier, he accepts the challenge.

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth


  • guest

    Good point! But how about saying all street drugs including weed/marijuana...smdh

  • You Could Never

    He makes money off of weed. Weed is paying a lot of his bills. I will always clap for someone opening their own biz. And get government contract to operate to boot.

    *claps for Wiz and his legal weed biz*

  • 1BlueStar

    Now what exactly is lean, again...?

  • Jen_no_juice

    Marijuana is a plant not a drug #carryon

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    So because he smokes marijuana it means he can’t speak out against Lean?

    Wiz isn’t perfect but he is promoting empowerment and ability to not follow a trend. Smoking weed isn’t a trend. Also, marijuana is LEGAL in certain states. California being one of them.

  • Jen_no_juice

    That last still looks like someone auntie trying to find her keys in the bottom of her big ass purse

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    Looking at Wiz makes me hungry. I’m going to go heat up my lunch.

  • klwbaby

    Prescription cough medicine mix with soda and candy.

  • You Could Never

    i think weed stopped being a street drug when it became legally available in a whole lot of places recreationally. I could be wrong.

  • iWasteTime

    I can't wait! New Gov said 100 days!!!
    Come on with it sir!!!!

  • You Could Never

    lol. Hey girl hey. spake'd (Lil Mo lol) to ya earlier. *hugs your neck*

  • hottlanta

    He looks like Wendy.

  • Wow

    That’s not the point stupid. Yes he’s making money just like the rest of the drug peddlers around the world. The point is that with him promoting weed he’s also helping in creating a culture of drug addicts. That’s just as bad as sipping lean. I honestly can’t believe there are people as stupid as you who exist in the world.

  • iWasteTime

    Hey Sis. I saw and replied!!
    Hugs yours right back!!
    Hope everybody on your end good!

  • iWasteTime

    What is going on with her.
    Has Sandra posted about it? Let me go look

  • TheOwley

    I'm still staring at them legs. I'm stuck. Give me a minute.

  • i troll it like i see it

    Good for him, maybe other influencers will follow suit and actually get through to somebody.

  • You Could Never

    The point is that with him promoting weed he’s also helping in creating a culture of drug addicts.

    Promoting his BUSINESS. Bringing in Revenue. Got it.

  • You Could Never

    I am at work dying. Weed is still considered a gateway drug leading the youth astray...yet NOW.... is legally available. Which is due to the GOVERNMENT...not Wiz.

    Bye. BB next post

  • justlooking

    Good Afternoon and happy Damn Monday.

    Why does he look a drunk date, doing walk of shame looking for some lipstank in that big ole bag.

    NOT a Good Look https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/3c16726485c872f14b0100e43e303faaaa1583ef1e45863ed485045a9c26b96f.gif


    Weed is a herb/plant sweetie

  • Wow

    You are way too debased to have this type of discussion with because you are still missing the point. It’s not about his business but carry on.

  • You Could Never

    I hope you are WELL Waste. I miss you A LOT hun. I was so glad to see you log-in today.

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    He wifed up Amber Rose, ain't nobody listening to him. Full Stop.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    With those spaghetti legs, he needs to start sipping on some Ensure.

  • PhillyFacts

    This (Lean is Lame) need to be a trending slogan across America, on billboards, tee shirts etc. Young adults are dying at alarming rates from pills and lean, especially here in Philly it's been in the news for weeks. Were on record to hit over 1200 drug intoxication deaths this year. The popular thing here is Percocet (perc) 30's, and they're expensive so when these young people can't afford the high they resort to heroin which gives the same dope effect as the perc's at a cheaper price. These drugs know no boundaries, they're killing all nationalities, economic classes etc.,

  • LithiumHaitianFlower

    I think he was fully high through the 18 months ordeal. Then woke up like??with mad fleas and what not

  • RealATLPeach36

    Agree Lean Lame taking a double L.

    Separate note he has some crackhead legs.

    I can pick him up and I'm not a big or the new Thick which is really big/chubby.

    Wait before y'all go in!

    There's nothing wrong with thick, big or chubby if you're healthy.

    Even if you're not healthy still not my business I can't pay for surgery nor a trainer... eat on ?

  • RealATLPeach36

    1200 omg!

  • RealATLPeach36

    lol sipping Ensure Plus lmao ?

  • Karen Brady

    Spaghetti legs??. Where you been Chi-town? Missed you.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    Get that weight up, son!

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    I think alcohol would be the real gateway drug. Kids are drinking at more than smoking marijuana.

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    Yeah. Kanye said he had to take 30 showers to wash her off...

  • Karen Brady

    Lil Wayne's poison of choice

  • Jdove585

    Yes it is ...What worst is that it's promoted in SONGS pill popping & drinking Lean ...... I just had this conversation with my teenage son..... I am so glad that someone Famous is speaking against this .... Children, Teens.....young adults...Minds are to fragile...We have to promote awareness on the culture that can destroy them.... Weed is another Topic for discussion.... It will be legal across the US..... may be not now but in future.... We have to educate ....I will education my son... and others..... But I seen a teen on the pills & it's a sad sight to see....I was at a concert...... Nodding off like it was heroin...it's very very sad....Knowledge is power.

  • Mischelle

  • JustB

    Lean is opioids... which is basically the same as heroin... understand young people are turning into opioid addicts... just like your favorite rappers

  • SumthinSweeter

    I believe it.

  • Arrissasso

    Opioid abuse and overdose deaths are at an all time high right now. I know 1 in 4 friends is an opioid addict whom is either recovering or lost in them streets. They want to enslaven us in all forms, when I say us I mean the “livestock” not based on race.

  • Arrissasso

    That’s a fact and also a damn shame.

  • Arrissasso

    What’s sad is yes it’s fun for the moment but you become addicted before you know it, but them withdrawals baby? I don’t hear any songs regarding the withdrawals pains and shits.

  • Arrissasso

    ??? challenge accepted!

  • Arrissasso

    That’s right! Only way he get away with them poom pooms.

  • ThottyPippen

    Wiz got the knees of a struggling auntie that lived a hard life...LOL

  • StayathomeMom

    I need him to eat!

  • Guest©

    I have a male friend who eats like a pig but is rail thin. Some ppl have great metabolism. Meanwhile I look at food and gain weight and ppl call me a gym rat. I have to be if I don't want to look like Norbits girlfriend, lol.

  • Guest©

    You are wrong for that, lol.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    Those legs and a plate of meatballs.... ?

  • Guest©

    Lol, you are not lying. I thought weed makes one hungry?

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    When he gets older, that might change. Right now, he probably eats a ton without gaining an ounce of weight.

  • Guest©

    Agreed, he probably has a high metabolism. I'm hating on the low low.

  • http://toshiashaw.com Toshia Shaw

    I guess men who do/did lean have them legs. I had to leave a dude cuz his legs looked like that and he said he like lean. I don't got the time to try to revive OD'd hearts. Buh bye!

  • http://bettybooplover.tumblr.com/ Berry Melon

    Yeah, I was thinking chicken legs... Well I suppose it's better than having legs like this...

  • unknown user

    He dont give a damn about nobody, hes throwing a subliminal.. At who, im sure we will find out soon enough

  • unknown user

    Ohhhhh 21 Savage. There it is

  • RealATLPeach36

    Heyyyy you won't get me to disagree

  • dontgetblocked

    But it's okay to walk around stoned all the time.

  • Keepin’IT100


  • Keepin’IT100

    I love Wiz but I can't envision those skinny legs grinding and bumping all in Amber Roses business.. His legs are soo skinny!!!

  • MRiGOThim

    Look at Wiz lookin like an AUNTIE with those chicken legs...He does have that long meat tho :P

  • pure_rachet

    he ugly as hail. But I'd let him hit too.

  • Solstice


  • TheOwley

    Let's give Wendy a break. Her problem is rapid weight loss and not toning her muscles and skin. I'm not so sure if you can prevent this loose skin situation since so many people end up with all that hanging skin.

  • Michelle

    Weed is actually grown from earth though. A huge difference from cough syrup being used as koolaid.

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    And it doesn't help that he's searching through that bag like granny Eunice trying to find the keys to her Eldorado.

  • Tennessean

    I think she likes skinny dudes. 21 savage smaller than he is...

  • Tennessean

    It absolutely is okay to walk around stoned because at least you are walking and aware unlike heroin and meth addicts and EVEN lean drinkers. To equate weed with manufactured drugs, additives, poisons, and other stuff is ignorant. To define weed as a drug with violent tendencies is a lie. It is evolving into a help drug for patients with migraines, stress, appetite, and even more extreme issues such as pain with cancer, pain with lupus and much more.

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    True, but brain cells are still damaged/killed which means over time you do "suffer". Your actions are impaired as well. Short term memory loss among other things. It just doesn't happen as fast as the manufactured drugs
