(The Root) — Rapper Gucci Mane went AWOL on Twitter a few days after a very bizarre rant in which he claimed to have had sex with basically every woman in the music industry. He recently returned to Twitter to apologize to his fans, and to admit an addiction to “lean,” a drink made with promethazine and codeine.

“I’ve been drinking lean for 10 plus years & I must admit it has destroyed me,” Gucci Mane tweeted. “I’m addicted to lean and that [s–t] ain’t no joke.”

He apologized to everyone at whom he took shots during his Twitter tirade, saying, “I just wanna man up right now & take this time to apologize to my family, friends, the industry and most of all my fans.”

Gucci Mane is currently in jail on drug and gun charges but said that upon his release, he’ll be heading to rehab to seek help for his addiction. Best in your recovery, Guwop!
