Because Lindsay Lohan has taught the world that being on probation in LA means absolutely cockshit, T.I. and his new wife managed to get themselves busted last night after cops smelled marijuana wafting out of their car on Sunset Blvd. They both were slapped with felony drug possession with initial reports suggesting they were holding meth or ecstasy. Turns out it’s way more redonkulous than that. They were messed up on Sizzurp, yo! My honky ass has no clue. TMZ reports:
There seems to be evidence of Sizzurp … aka purple drank … aka codeine syrup.
– A form of codeine falls under the class of drugs for which T.I. and his wife, Tameka “Tiny” Cottle, were arrested.
– Codeine is the main ingredient in Sizzurp, which is a growing problem in the South.
– Sizzurp is typically ingested in styrofoam cups … it’s become a “thing” in the hip-hop community.
If I was about to get to very publicly arrested for drinking purple cough syrup, I’m pretty sure I’d make a move for the officer’s gun and pray to God he shoots me first. Sizzurp? Seriously? This is a real fucking thing? Was meth not embarrassing and ghetto enough for the South? “Y’all, we need something that really makes our drug addiction look more pathetic than violent. Wait, I done got it. Cough syrup over ice. A ring ting diddly doo!”
I’m joking, of course. T.I. was caught in LA, so it’s really just a matter of time until they’re done bronzing his medal. Within the hour most likely.
