    I've never heard of this combo before - so maybe it's just a Southern thing.

    From the AP -

    ^^^ lol
    i think it was "Sizzurp" but now thats just splitting hairs.
    I've always wondered how "syrup" is so popular, especially in this case, I mean surely a big rapper would be able to get something a little more hardcore or suited to his profession!! Always sad to see someone OD though.

    Where do they get this syrup? isn't it RX only?

    Why did they include that? Thats just sick imagine his friends and family reading that?

    Seems like quite a reckless drug of abuse. Apparently Phenergan w/ codeine is a very common codeine based cough syrup, and according to this table it contains 480 mg of codeine per bottle.

    Considering the LD-50 of codeine is 800 mg I'm surprised that ODs aren't more common among rappers who apparently drink a lot of the stuff. I hardly imagine they carefully measure out each dose while intoxicated, and at 10 mg per 5 ml it must be quite easy to consume larger amounts of codeine than intended.
