Chris Brown and Lil Wayne have both been implicated in an ongoing drug probe tied to the arrest of a Miami music producer known as “Cuban Harry.”
Digital Music News reports the focus of the investigation centers on Harrison Garcia’s “sizzurp” and other “purple drank variations” operation.
Garcia, known in music circles as “Cuban Harry,” is known to frequently hang out with both Brown and Wayne, even appearing in a recent video of one of the latter’s artists flaunting wads of money. He also once posted a picture of himself joining Brown on a trip to Albania for a show.
Over the same timeframe, Garcia has become a fixture on the international hip-hop scene, jet-setting with big-name stars, driving exotic cars and regularly posting photos of himself to social media holding loads of cash.
Garcia was recently taken into custody in Miami on felony racketeering, grand theft and trafficking in illegal drug charges.
The robberies are reported to have taken place at as many as 50 pharmacies across the state. The thief ring operated by donning masks and using crowbars to enter into the establishments, where they targeted cough syrup and other drugs.
Court documents also reveal authorities suspect the stolen drugs were used to concoct and distribute an assortment of opioid-powered cocktails.
Known on the streets as “sizzurp” and “lean,” the drugs were then sold all across the black market. Federal agents also suspect Garcia used his Instagram account, where has more than 37,000 followers, to set up various deals. Both Brown and Wayne have long been rumored to be users off such drugs, with Wayne have suffered a string of seizures many have traced to his use of the drugs.
