Rappers have terribly busy schedules. Usually, from 11 p.m. to 2 a.m. they are doing a show somewhere. From 2 a.m. to 6 a.m., you can usually find them in the studio tweeting about how they are grinding. From 6 a.m. to 9 a.m., they fit in a nap. (Shouts to REM sleep.) After that, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., they hop on various social media outlets to promote all the grinding they are doing, maybe tweet a link to the trailer to the mixtape announcement that's happening next month. The rest of the day consists of procuring drugs, consuming those drugs, playing a little Candy Crush, and getting to the next venue where they will start the process all over again.
God forbid they have a flight without wi-fi.
With such limited free time, we can't expect rappers to thoroughly research what drugs are "in." Molly is, of course, the most recent drug du jour. It has been mentioned passively by the likes of Danny Brown and Sammy Adams as early as 2010, but during the past, it has absolutely pervaded rap rhetoric. Suddenly, we have rappers who never before rapped about club drugs lauding it in the floweriest language. Chief Keef proceeded to let us know that Tadeo was off that Molly Water. (We are slightly concerned about his serotonin levels.) And, mostly notably, Rick Ross bragged about drugging a girl in order to have sex with her. Rape, in other words. (Also, perhaps, this shows that Rick Ross doesn't know exactly how Molly works).
So, the next time you think a rapper sounds like a narc rapping about drugs, just remember he or she was probably pressed for time when they wrote/freestyled that verse. Cut them some slack. Personally, we can't wait for the craze Chance the Rapper started with Acid Rap to pick up. And here's to hoping Alex Wiley's peyote usage becomes mainstay so we can get a Soulja Boy song out of it.
