(Miami Herald) Miami’s Harrison Garcia, who is accused of peddling illegal cough syrup used to make the drink known as “lean.” Instagram
For all his Instagram photos of guns, cash and drugs, the self-proclaimed “CEO of the Purple Drank” insisted he wasn’t actually peddling large bottles of prescription cough syrup to Miami’s hip-hop crowd.
He posted all that stuff to enhance his street cred, self-described rap producer Harrison Garcia told a federal judge Monday. And for the likes on social media.
“I had an image to portray, to boost up my followers,” Garcia said. “I guess it’s just the music industry.”
