Sean Kingston also revealed that although it was Justin Bieber who introduced him to “Lean”, he didn’t go too deep into it.
“I started, you know, not drinking lean but like basically, yeah drinking lean. You feel me, just getting in the wrong stuff and wrong crowd and kind of lost my way a little bit, thank God I didn’t go too deep into it.”
When asked by Adam22 if Justin got him into lean or the other way around, Sean, whose real mane is Kisean Paul Anderson, replied, “Um, shoot, I think he got me into it. I don’t even know how he got into it.”
The so long hitmaker also explained that the fact that he was doing it with Justin Bieber, gave him some legendary feelings.
“But it was kind of like a situation where I was going through a depressing moment a little bit…Um, shoot, I think he got me into it I don’t even know how he got into it,” says Kingston. Adam then asks how it was sipping with Bieber, to which he responds, “It was legendary. That was legendary. But I was like damn, Bieber, you messed up after this.”
