Much like molly was the buzz word for viral hits in 2012 and 2013, we are now, like it or not, firmly in the age of lean. Sure, sizzurp has been in the game for decades, emerging out of the depths of the Houston underground and firmly into the mainstream with DJ Screw, UGK, the Swishahouse factory and Three 6 Mafia. It killed Screw and Pimp C, ruined (or helped, depending on your perspective) Gucci Mane, was a consistent crutch for Soulja Boy and did an unfortunately fantastic job of nearly leading to a premature end to Lil Wayne.
Recently, the Atlanta scene has been a hotbed of the stuff, with everyone from Future to Migos to Young Thug and everyone in between rapping about their favorite double cups. After Rich Homie Quan was rushed to the hospital this week
after suffering two seizures while on the set of his new music video, the overwhelming suspicion was that Quan was downing lean, too. But despite its serious and well-documented health risks, it seems that rappers can't stay away—or stop rapping about it. XXL
has compiled a list of 40 songs that reference lean specifically—not purple drank, not sizzurp, but, to quote Young Thug, L-E-A-N-I-N-G/Lean lean lean lean lean lean-lean-lean. From 2 Chainz to Nas, check out the rappers dropping references to that purple stuff. —Dan Rys
