Purple drank, syrup, lean, oil, Texas Tea, or whatever you want to call it, it’s the special recipe that sedates the south side of Houston, TX. A screwed up concoction that shaped the culture of southern hip-hop and eventually began to take over. So much, that anti energy drinks began popping up everywhere that blatantly markets to the wannabe thugs in the south. Let’s face it, if you’re not an OG you can’t survive in this drought, how else are you gonna get your drank on? I was never much of an energy drink guy, and I do like my music screwed and chopped, so why the hell not? I grab a bottle of Sippin Syrup – the “purple” flavor (i love that, purple lol) and start sippin’ while i’m tippin’ away in my Mazda 6. Next thing I know I look in the rearview mirror and notice diamonds in my teeth, a gold chain on my neck, and a fresh set of 84′s popped out of my tires like a transformer. I’m draped up and dripped out as I’m swangin’ on the loop chunkin’ the deuce up to all the haters. The taste isn’t that great but it’s not terrible either. It kinda reminds me of Dimetapp because of the thick syrupy grapey purple flavor, but it doesn’t leave any kind of medicine taste. It’s not something refreshing you would want to chug like an ice cold Dr.Pepper, but you would definitely want to sip on some after work while you’re watching Netflix. I did start to get pretty tired, but not so much that it was hard to stay awake. When I did finally fall asleep, I had crazy dreams about being chased by zombies through a water park. When I woke up I felt very refreshed and alert, but I was bummed to discover that the ice tray in my mouth disappeared. In conclusion, try it for the effect not the taste, and keep it trill.
