DJ Screw, feat. Big Moe, “Sippin’ Codeine”
Oh, you thought we forgot? You can’t talk about sippin’ drank without mentioning DJ Screw (pictured above) and his mixtape legacy, where he used his patented “Chopped and Screwed” style to make sippin’ a part of the culture. Here’s an example.
Fat Pat, “Too Much Lean In My Cup”
Another classic H-Town rapper rapping about sippin’ codeine. We hope you’re getting the picture by now.
Young Buck, feat. D-Tay, “Sippin’ Purp”
Shortly after the case against him stemming from his arrest at the 2004 VIBE Awards was dismissed, Buck celebrated by pouring himself a nice tall Styrofoam cup full of purple drank.
Remember this banger? “I fill a big bank and drank drank/That’s why I got a purple Sprite and y’all ain’t.” Yup, those dudes were dranking it, too.
Three 6 Mafia, feat. Diplomats and Bun B, “Sippin’ On Some Syrup (Remix)”
Let’s run it back! Only this time, let’s include Cam’Ron, Jim Jones, Juelz Santana and Bun to show that everyone (not just Southerners!) loves the purple. Looks like you’re not alone after all, JaMarcus!
