In a recent interview with MTV, Lil Wayne opened up about his love for the drug cocktail syrup despite knowledge that the drink caused Pimp C's surprising death. Unfortunately, Weezy hasn't learned from Pimp C's accidental overdose. The rapper continues to perform with a Styrofoam cup of pink or red juice, and he seems to be a bit frustrated with people around him who think he should leave the cocktail alone.

"Let me do me. Everybody's got their thing," the rapper told MTV. "Do your history, do your research. It ain't that easy -- feels like death in your stomach when you stop doing that s---. You gotta learn how to stop, you gotta go through detox."

In other Lil Wayne news, the rapper appeared at an arraignment hearing in New York on Monday and pleaded not guilty to gun charges. Wayne was arrested following a performance at New York's Beacon Theater in July 2007, when police discovered a handgun hidden in his tour bus. If convicted, the rapper could face up to three years in prison.
