Paul Wall is frustrated to see lean being blamed for the death of many rappers. The Houston rapper sat down with DJ Smallz for an interview when the topic of Master P's recent interview on The Breakfast Club was addressed.

"Everybody getting high now," Master P said at the time. "The syrup is killing this generation."

DJ Smallz asked Paul Wall about this statement, which the "Sittin Sidewayz" rapper refuted.

"I got nothing but respect for Master P, but... It might be killing off a generation theoretically, but not sending people to the graveyard," Paul Wall said. "I personally don't know not one person in my whole life who has ever died as a result of sipping syrup. They might have syrup in their body when they die, but that don't kill 'em."

Paul Wall put the blame on alcohol, other drugs and obesity. The Swishahouse rhymer pointed to many syrup sippers' lifestyles as the reason for their death. The Houston native claimed that Pimp C died from not using his CPAP mask for sleep apnea and Big Moe died from obesity as opposed to their syrup use. Paul Wall did, however, criticize the mixing of syrup with alcohol and popping pills for its disastrous results.

The Po-Up Poet also addressed the killing of the syrup culture via its spread around the world.

"There's a lot of culture vultures out there taking our culture down here in Texas," Paul Wall said. "It is killing our culture cause this used to be something that was our thang that everybody else in the world used to laugh at."
