The rapper and actor, who has been making more headlines for his meltdowns and outbursts, than his music and TV shows, revealed while making the Face Off album with Omarion he was high every day. And he was sipping Lean up to seven times a day while on tour with Chris Brown!

He went on to encourage young people to leave drugs alone.

Read Bow Wow’s tweets below:

To the youth – Stop with these dumb ass drugs. I’m going to let something out. When me and Omarion worked on FACE OFF album. I was high off lean every day! When yall saw me on BET going off on torae I was high off lean. My attitude everything changed. My fans started to…

Turn on me my family too. I never promoted lean in my songs. The whole time I was on the UCP tour with Chris I WAS SIPPING 4’s at least 7 times a day. I was addicted until our show in Cincinnati… I came off stage and passed out woke up in the hospital I was having withdraws

I never felt a pain like that ever. It was summer but I was walking round with 3 hoodies on because I was so cold. I missed the Chicago show of that tour Baltimore show BECAUSE I WAS F–KING HIGH AND SICK!!!! that shit is not cool and I was doing it to be cool!

Kick that sh-t! Be a good son or daughter. Be the best you. Ima start being more vocal. We gotta save the youth from going out early. Parents watch your kids. Explain to them. We want yall to live man. I almost died f–king with syrup. To this day I’m affected my stomach will

Never be the same and it hasn’t been. DRUG-FREE IS THE WAY TO BE! smarten up tighten up out here. We can’t lose no more of you. Not one! I love all yall. The young artist all the kids around the world… don’t follow a trend. Break the cycle. PEACE

Go back and watch the face off show BET gave us! Look how dumb I looked. My ranting I was angry every day. They try to protect the truth by saying I was dehydrated… nawww bro. I WAS HIGH OFF PROMETHAZINE CODEINE! Actavis. SAY NO TO THESE DRUGS

I hope Bow Wow’s message sticks with those who need to hear it!
