Rapper Rich Homie Quan is denying an addiction to Sizzurp after suffering a seizure on the set of his latest music video for “Walk Thru.”

Quan reportedly received medical attention after suffering seizures on set, which his representative attributed to heat exhaustion. However, sources told TMZ that Quan “was on a lean binge for four days and stopped just three days before the seizure. The drug can reportedly stay in your system for up to 4 days - even longer depending on the dose...and we're told he was a heavy abuser.” Quan has also posted videos of himself mixing sizzurp concoctions in public locations, including a shopping mall.

Of course, the rapper released a statement afterwards to deny he has a drug problem. “After being in three states in three days, up early having to shoot my video for 'Walk Thru' and even sleeping in between scenes on top of filming in this humid Atlanta heat, I fainted and hit my head,” said Quan. “I'm not addicted to anything including drugs nor was I leaning at the shoot. The media is gonna put fake stories out there but I just want to let my fans know that I'm good and recovering.”

Sizzurp, a combination of prescription cough syrup, sugary soft drinks, and hard candy, has become synonymous with hip-hop culture in recent years. Last year, rapper Lil Wayne allegedly collapsed and suffered multiple seizures over his Sizzurp use, while 2 Chainz was recently sentenced to a drug diversion program after security officials at LAX found ingredients for Sizzurp in his checked baggage last month.

In response to the recent media attention, pharmaceutical company Actavis announced they are pulling their prescription cough syrup that is widely used for Sizzurp.
