Letters From the Pin

In August of this year, Cuban Harry was sentenced to 30 years. The music producer, born Harrison Garcia, was charged with leading a drug ring, allegedly organizing several pharmacy burglaries across South Florida. The stolen drugs were said to fuel the underground selling of exceptionally strong, addictive cough syrup.

Since hitting the scene in ’90s, promethazine mixed with codeine syrup has earned itself plenty of nicknames. From “purple drank” to “lean” to “sizzurp,” the mixture’s popularity has earned it cameos in hip-hop songs from Drake to Justine Bieber. Lil Wayne, possibly most notably, was linked to the drink after he let the world know that what’s in his cup… is in his cup. “I think people need to mind their own business. I don’t care if it was heroin in my cup. It’s in my cup,” the New Orleans rapper said during an interview with Katie Couric in 2010.

Regardless of what was in Lil Wayne’s cup back in 2010 or what was in his cup in August, he and other celebrities had to have gotten it from somewhere. Following 27-year-old Cuban Harry, Darrish Bernard Martin (AKA Young Bernie), is heading to trail for illegally supplying the substance to celebrities.
