With molly still circulating its way through the lyrics of rappers across the spectrum Kendrick Lamar took some time out to speak against the street drug and its use in songs.
The Compton, California native recently sat down with Sway Calloway and MTV News to discuss the drug’s place in Hip Hop. He says he believes the use of the drug in lyrics is getting old quick and it’s time to move on.
“Sometimes you have the trends that’s not that cool,” Kendrick said. “You may have certain artists portraying these trends and don’t really have that lifestyle, and then it gives off the wrong thing. And it becomes kinda corny after a while.”
No one person was as the butt of Lamar’s comments however 2 Chainz, Rick Ross, Gucci Mane, French Montana, Lil Wayne and Wale are all ones who have referenced the drug in lyrics, among many others. K-Dot also said that use of the term also waters down Hip Hop and defaces its image.
“When everybody consciously now uses this term or this phrase and putting it in lyrics, it waters the culture down,” Kendrick explained. “So it’s really just time to move on.”
