Kendrick Lamar says molly rap lyrics is watering down hip-hop culture.
The West Coast rapper was speaking with Sway Calloway of MTV where he discussed the drug’s influence in hip-hop.
“Sometimes you have the trends that’s not that cool,” the Compton rapper 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. When everybody consciously now uses this term or this phrase and putting it in lyrics, it waters the culture down. So it’s really just time to move on.”
Several rappers have reference the party drug in their lyrics including Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, 2 Chainz and more.
