JaMarcus Russell

Pleads Not Guilty

in 'Sizzurp' Case

7/20/2010 12:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Former #1 overall NFL draft pick JaMarcus Russell just appeared in an Alabama courtroom this morning where the 6'6" quarterback plead not guilty to illegally possessing codeine syrup ... aka sizzurp.

0720-jamarcus-russel-bn-getty
Russell -- who was recently cut by the Oakland Raiders for being terrible -- dressed for the occasion in a black on black suit that featured his initials -- and some fancy design -- embroidered into the breast.

As we previously reported, JaMarcus was arrested on July 5 after an undercover narcotics team searched his home.

He's due back in court in August.

Young Money, yeah, uh
Throw dirt on me and grow a wild flower
But it's "**** the world", get a child out her
Yeah, my life a bitch, but you know nuthin 'bout her
Been to hell and back, I can show you vouchers
I'm rollin' sweets, I'm smokin' sour
Married to the game, but she broke her vows
That's why my bars are full of broken bottles
And my night stands are full of open bibles, uh
I think about more than I forget
But I don't go around fire expectin' not to sweat
And these *****s know I lay 'em down, make your bed
Bitches try to kick me while I'm down, I'll break your leg
Money outweighin' problems on a triple-beam
I'm stickin' to the script, you *****s skippin' scenes, uh
Be good or be good at it
****ing right I got my gun, semi-Cartermatic
Yeah, put the **** in they mouth, so I guess it's "**** what they say"
I'm high as a bitch, up, up and away
Man, I'll come down in a couple of days
OK, you want me up in a cage, then I'll come out in beast mode
I got this world stuck in the safe, combination is the G-code
It's Weezy motha****a, blood gang and I'm in bleed mode
All about my dough, but I don't even check the peephole
So you can keep knockin' but won't knock me down
No love lost, no love found

(Hook)

It's a little too late to say that you're sorry now
You kicked me when I was down
But what you say just (don't hurt me)
That's right, it (don't hurt me)
I don't need ya (no more)
Don't wanna see ya (no more)
Bitch you get no (love)
You showed me nothin' but hate
You ran me into the ground
But what comes around goes around (around)
Don't hurt me (that's right)
You don't hurt me (and I don't need ya) no more
(Don't wanna see ya) no more
Bitch you get no love (no), no love (no), no love (no)
No love
Bitch you get no love (no), no love (no), no love
And I don't need ya (no more)

Get em

(Verse 2)

I'm alive again
More alive than I have been in my whole entire life
I can see these people's ears perk up as I begin
To spaz with the pen, I'm a little bit sicker than most
****'s finna' get thick again
They say the competition is stiff
But I get a hard **** from this ****, now stick it in
I ain't never givin' in again
Caution to the wind, complete freedom
Look at these rappers, how I treat 'em
So why the **** would I join 'em when I beat 'em
They call me a freak cause
I like to spit on these ******* 'fore I eat 'em
Man, get these wack ****suckers off stage
Where the **** is Kanye when you need him?
Snatch the mic from em, bitch Imma let you finish in a minute
Yeah that rap was tight
But I'm 'bout to spit the greatest verse of all time
So ya might want to go back to the lab tonight and um
Scribble out them rhymes you were going to spit
And start over from scratch and write new ones
But I'm afraid that it ain't gonna make no difference
When I rip the stage and tear it in half tonight
It's an adrenaline rush, you feel the bass thump
From the place all the way to the parking lot, fellow
Set fire to the mic and ignite the crowd
You can see the sparks from hot metal
Cold-hearted from the day I Bogarted the game
My soul started to rot fellow
When I'm not even in my harshest
You can still get roasted 'cause Marsh is not mellow
'Til I'm topplin' from the top I'm not going to stop
I'm standin' on my Monopoly board
That means I'm on top of my game and it don't stop
'Til my hip don't hop anymore
When you're so good that you can't say it
Because it ain't even cool for you to sound ****y anymore
People just get sick cause you spit
These fools can't drool or dribble a drop anymore
And you could never break my stride
You never slow the momentum at any moment I'm 'bout to blow
You'll never take my pride
I'm killin' the flow, slow venom any opponent
Is gettin' no mercy, mark my words
Ain't letting up, relentless
I smell blood, I don't give a ****, keep giving 'em hell
Where was you when I fell and needed help up?
You get no love

(Hook)

What a waste of talent. This guy was good in college and I was stoked when Raiders picked him up. Then the clown got a huge f'ing ego for nothing and started to suck ass.

When the back up going into the game and plays with more heart you have shown all season its time for you to go..

Thank you Al for showing this clown the door

Sad to see the first overall pick fall from stardom so rapidly. The guy still has a decent arm and will probably get a look by a team in training camp. A bad work ethic, bad habits it was bound to happen.

As for the Codeine "purp" "sizzurp" this is a big issue that I am sure many NFL and NBA stars are consuming. Johnny Jolly of GB Packers got suspended for the stuff, and he already was charged yrs ago for it. I would like to say that there are few cases but due to how addicting the stuff is I would not be surprised if they start a movement over it.

Why is this appearing in print now. It is not July 5. That was a year ago. Why is it being brought up? Did he do it again?
