Dip, I dip, you dip, dip, I dip, you dip, I dip
Dip, I dip, you dip, dip, I dip, you dip, I dip
Dip, you dip, I dip, dip, you dip, I dip, you dip
Dip, I dip, you dip, dip, I dip, you dip, I dip
Dip by Danny Brown

Pure MDMA is either powder or crystals. In this case, Danny is literally talking about licking your finger and dipping it in the powder.

It’s also about dipping his ‘ink pen’, euphemism for having sex.

Also a reference to Freak Nasty’s “Da Dip” :

I put my hand upon your hip
When I dip, you dip, we dip
You put your hand upon my hip
When you dip, I dip, we dip

Freak Nasty’s “Da Dip” is also sampled is this song but he didn’t want to clear it because it thought it’d bring bad representation to his song but he eventually did it (39min)

Now all these rappers talking 'bout that molly
Bet a million dollars, these niggas ain't dipping
Dip by Danny Brown

It’s true…

A lot of rappers are talking about or sweating off Molly, regularly.

But Danny doesn’t believe they are really popping what they claim to be popping.

Danny is pointing out that “Molly” is a crystalline powder in a bag that you stick your finger in and then lick . Not something that comes in plurals that can be popped.

Or at least that’s what it has meant for the last 15 years or so. God knows what it means now. Heard enough talk about “popping mollies” that I assume people are filling up capsules, even if I haven’t seen a capsule filled with mahl dawg in a few years.

typically ecstasy is a pill as it’s cut with something other than mdma. molly or pure mdma should always be crystals otherwise it isn’t pure mdma. powders can easily be finger dipped (what DB is talking about) snorted, or put in a gel capsule and swallowed.

November 4th, 2013

in the UK, where MDMA and ecstasy first became massive in the early 90s, and even today is a way bigger part of youth culture, it was only ever taken in pill form, never powder, that rappers call “molly” so maybe they are confusing the names of the powder and the pills, though id bet my life they dont know what they are talking about and just think its a cool reference, e.g. rick ross' famous line where he thinks it could be used for date rape!!! absolutely clueless

Why I run around wonderin', wanderin', ponderin' life
Life 'round here, when
Life ain't really been 'round here in some times
Sometimes it's no one 'round here
Life Round Here (Remix) by James Blake (Ft. Chance The Rapper)

Chance spends his time reflecting on life, but it’s ironic because where he’s from, he’s surrounded more by death than anything.

His repetition of ‘wanderin’ almost gives him time to think about life / death — adds a sense of deep thought which fits the slowed down flow in this part of the verse.

Also …

Repeated words often losing meaning, perhaps life is losing meaning to Chance, or he feels as if his reflections on tracks are falling on deaf ears.

Dark skinned Mike but I still feel bad Life Round Here (Remix) by James Blake (Ft. Chance The Rapper)

Chance likens himself to Michael Jackson when he was still dark-skinned. Do you see the resemblance:

But “Bad” was one of MJ’s hits when he was light-skinned.

I wonder if Nas stillmatic Life Round Here (Remix) by James Blake (Ft. Chance The Rapper)

Play off of Nas' 5th album Stillmatic. Perhaps Chance wonders if this is still Nas' state of mind.

This line is less random than one would think: The previous line was about God, and this one is about Nas, who is also known as “God’s Son”.

This and the line before both relate to the disillusionment of growing up. When you’re little God’s still magic and you haven’t lost faith from seeing tragedy. You grow up listening to Nas (Chano would’ve been 8 when Stillmatic released), and then five years later, right at the brink of adolescence, God’s Son is declaring hip hop dead

Summer is comin' know you could feel it Connect by Drake

Summer is coming and Drake can feel the heat since there’s more crime in the warm months. (Double entendre since it’s literally hot in the summer)

This could also be a reference to Summer from “From Time”

I text her from time to time, she a mom now
I guess sometimes life forces us to calm down
I told her she could live with me if she need to
I got a compound but I think she's straight
Pound Cake/Paris Morton Music 2 by Drake (Ft. Jay Z) 2

This girl Drake used to be with has a kid now, so her new life responsibilities mean she has to calm down.

The girl Drake talks about is probably Paris Morton, who recently gave birth to a son named Carter.

Drake cares so much about her, he’s willing to put her up (and he’s got space), but she doesn’t need him to.

He’s got a habit for texting those old flames.

This might also be a reference to his song “From Time”, which contains a similar line about texting:

Passive aggressive when we’re textin', I feel the distance

Due to the similarity of lines, Drake could also be referring to Courtney. The song placement almost could be a timeframe showing the time that’s past, to the time that she now has a baby.
