[Death to Molly]
In the “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe” music video, the string ensemble that plays during the outro is cut off with a black shot with the text: Death to Molly.
Molly is the purest form of ecstasy, usually given as a free powder or contained in a capsule.
Molly is consistently mentioned in contemporary rap, be it most humorously referenced by Trinidad James in the legendary:
Ross, who also remixed this Kendrick classic, has had his endorsement deal with Reebok dropped as as result of these lyrics.
As of yet, it is hard to tell if this is what Kendrick ominously demands dead, but it can be easily interpreted as a kind of rallying call to take drugs seriously and make sure it is not promoted through Hip-Hop, something Kendrick clearly takes very seriously.
Sometimes you have the 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. 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. It’s really about keeping hip-hop original and pushing away the corniness in it.
