In the wake of Mac Miller's death due to an apparent overdose, more and more artists have come out about their struggles with addiction. One of the most recent artists to speak out is Bow Wow. He opened up about his life-threatening addiction to lean that distanced himself with a lot of his friends and family.
He took to twitter to explain in detail and give words of advice to the youth that may be struggling as well.
