The Black Hippy emcee sat down with Sway Calloway and MTV News to discuss molly's place in Hip Hop music. Kendrick says he believes the drug's use in lyrics is getting old and it's time to move on.
Many rappers have used molly in their lyrics and Kendrick didn't pick on anyone specifically. Notable examples include 2 Chainz, Kanye West
,Trinidad James, and Tyga.
Instead of nitpicking and listing off every song and every rapper, Lamar was very general and said it was just a trend that was never really that cool to begin with, the Huff Post reports.
Kendrick is so sick of hearing molly talked about in rap songs that his new video for "B*tch Don't Kill My Vibe" is set a funeral and at the end, the words "Death To Molly" flash across the screen...MTV News reports.
"When everybody consciously now uses this term or phrase and is putting it in lyrics, it waters the culture down," Lamar explained to Sway. "So it's really just time to move on."
According to NME, Kendrick and Sway spoke before Kendrick's performance in Gulf Shores, Alabama.
