Attention Kendrick Lamar fans: ever notice that at the end of the up-and-coming rapper's music video for "B****, Don't Kill My Vibe", the words DEATH TO MOLLY flash across the screen? Well, in an interview with MTV News, the hip-hop wunderkind insists that he truly means that message. Molly, a popular slang for the drug MDMA, is being thrown around in a lot of rap lyrics these days (most famously, "Molly" by Tyga), and Kendrick doesn't think this "trend" in hip-hop lyrics is very cool:
"I like trends...but sometimes you have trends that's not that cool. You may have certain artists portraying these trends and don't really have that lifestyle and then it gives off the wrong thing. It's really about keeping hip-hop original and pushing away the corniness. It's time to move on."
