In May, Kendrick Lamar said that he believes the use of the drug molly in lyrics is getting old and that it’s time to move on. 2 Chainz, Rick Ross, Gucci Mane, French Montana, Lil Wayne and Wale are among the artists who have mentioned the drug in their rap. “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.”
