The artist formerly known as Tity Boi has cleaned up his act for good. 2 Chainz, who was charged with felony drug possession stemming from a codeine-possession arrest at LAX airport and sentenced to an 18-month drug diversion program, claims that he has given up sizzurp in favor of sobriety. During an interview with MTV News, Chainz said, “I don’t even drank no more…I haven’t drunk since New Year’s Eve; that was my New Year’s resolution.”

The former Codeine Cowboy went on to explain that he was using promethazine-codeine cough syrup for his stomach problems. “You know that I have stomach issues and everything, so for me, I’m trying to get off of all medicine dealing with my stomach,” he explained. “I take medicine every day that people don’t know about. So for me, it wasn’t just about me enjoying or–basically if you do too much of anything, it’s abusive…I wasn’t trying to abuse it, it was just about me maintaining. When you have ulcers and acid reflux and you fly as much as I do, you get nausea.”

Ever since Actavis stopped production of promethazine codeine, more and more rappers are starting to speak out against the use and abuse of the drug--while others are petitioning to get the drug back on the market. Here’s hoping that 2 Chainz stays strong in his commitment to sobriety–which he claims he has the mindset to, “I have a very strong mind,” he continued. “It’s the same thing with drugs and anything else: If you’re able to go cold turkey, wake up and say, ‘I don’t really need this,’ then that shows a lot about who you are as a person.”
