Three 6 Mafia's DJ Paul did an interview recently with TMZ, and discussed the surprising news that Justin Bieber has begun drinking codeine with alcohol and sprite, commonly referred to as sizzurp. Paul is well known for his song "Sippin' On Some Sizzurp," so TMZ wanted to get his opinion on recent pictures of Bieber indulging.

"I can't say don't do it because I did my rounds with it," said Paul. "But I stay away from it these days because I had a lot of friends that passed away from it. It's dangerous if you do too much of it."

Though he believes Bieber is playing with fire, he did express that anything can be counterproductive if you do it too much.

"But everything's dangerous if you do too much of it. Sex. Water," he said.

When asked if he thought new friends like Lil Za and Lil Twist were negatively influencing Bieber, DJ Paul said, "Nah, friends are friends. It's just a phase they're going through."
