promethI’m rarer than a hypebeast to the death of me/sippin’ on that prometh-azine…

Today’s cliche line stems from the obsession rappers have obtaining something hard to find or discontinued. Now that Actavis has ceased making and selling Promethazine Codeine, you can expect said rappers to brag about having the world’s last bottle starting yesterday. I always wondered what would happen to a drug like lean that became as easily obtainable as Adderall or alcohol for teens, but slightly more dangerous. Well, now I know. Being the cynic I am, I assume that a competing company lobbied to have Actavis stop production. One thing is for sure, it’ll be a struggle to hear rappers add one more item to their laundry list of things to brag about. Obviously I expect some clever lines to come out of the whole situation but for the most part, I’ll be like. You know the drill: Sound off on our Twitter (@TheSource).
