The hypnotic drink known as sizzurp -- a mixture of cough syrup and codeine -- has been a controversial part of hip-hop even before Three 6 Mafia made it a catchy phrase with 'Sippin on Some Sizzurp.' But pouring cough syrup on your ice cream? That's exactly what Young Thug did on an Instagram video post.

In the 15-second clip, the Atlanta rapper is pouring a thick red liquid of syrup on what looks to be strawberry ice cream. You don't actually see his face, just his hand, but you can clearly hear the rapper's voice, as he's explains exactly what he's doing.

"And yes, this is that," he says. "It's not nothing else." After that, a unnamed gentleman grabs a cone and starts eating it -- cough syrup and all.

"And I ain't goin back and forth," he wrote in the caption, which suggests he doesn't want to debate if syrup is good, bad, or straight up foolish. Young Thug should consult with his mentor Lil Wayne on the dangers of sizzurp.

Perhaps not surprisingly, the Instagram post received a whopping 10,000 views in just 48 hours, plus a slew of comments, one being from an ardent fan who has no problem with what Thugger did.

"Young Thug is my icon," the fan wrote. "Ima have to grow up and have a milk marie just like you."
