lean lyrics 40 songs
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

40 Of The Best Hip-Hop Songs That Mention Lean

Jay Z, “Takeover”
Producer: Kanye West
Album: The Blueprint
Lyric: “You said you've been in this 10, I've been in it 5/Smarten up, Nas/Four albums in 10 years, nigga? I could divide/That's one every, let's say 2/Two of them shits was doo/One was "nah," the other was Illmatic/That's a one hot album every 10 year average"
Why It’s Dope: You didn’t think we were going to leave this off the list, did you? Perhaps the most notorious reference to Nas’ classic on this list, this line is particularly wild because it is a part of one of the greatest diss tracks in the history of hip-hop, and perhaps the greatest unintended show of respect in hip-hop history. If a dude you’re beefing with acknowledges that the album is hot, it must be hot.
