    Kendrick Lamar raised a few eyebrows after he released the visuals for his latest single “B**ch, Don’t Kill My Vibe,” which showed the real side effects of street drug MDMA, best-known as Molly. He ended the video with a direct message to hip-hop community and fans: “Death to Molly.”

    In a recent interview with MTV, the Compton-born rapper said that the fascination with this drug is not okay.

    “Sometimes you have the trends that’s not that cool,” he 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 awhile. It’s really about keeping hip-hop original and pushing away the corniness in it.”

    The 25-year-old went on to say “when everybody consciously now uses this term or this phrase and putting it in lyrics, it waters the culture down.” Without mentioning rappers like Trinidad James, Tyga, Kanye West and Rick Ross, who have all made references to the drug in their music, he added, “It’s really just time to move on.”

    We commend Kendrick on his effort to take a stand against the promotion of the popular party drug. Tell us your thoughts below.
