Top Ten Molly References in Rap Music
Has anyone seen Molly?
Have you checked the strip clubs or the mean streets of the inner city? Have you asked around the Louis store? Have you checked ATL, MIA, and NYC?
It used to be that wide-eyed and sweaty raver kids ruled the molly scene. And basically, they still do. But over the past couple of years, that other white girl has been getting mad love from the rap scene.
"Something 'bout Mary, she gone off that Molly/Now the whole party is melting like Dali." - Kanye West on "Mercy."
Yep, Yeezy does that ecstasy, and he does it with class. This must be one of the most high-brow Molly references in rap music. We want to see more surrealists worked into rhymes, please.
"Iceberg vest, I'm sniffing Molly off a chess board." - Sir Michael Rocks on "You Know What."
This is another rather classy way to ingest your party rocks. A bump of sweet Molly really helps you see moves ahead of the competition.
"I got an iPad/iMac body and your mama sucks my dick when she's high on Mollies." - Andy Milonakis on "We Are Farmers."
Everyone knows this big-kid Andy has got jokes, and on a beat produced by Diplo, you know he's getting fucked up. We like this one because it's a great "Yo' Momma" joke for a new generation of beat freaks.
"And Lucy makes me lose my goddamn mind, but Molly keeps me on my goddamn grind/'Cause Snow White's hard to find and Tina is a bitch all of the time." - Charlie Classic on "Lake Placid."
Charlie knows Molly is the best girl to have 'round when you're trying to get loose while getting your hustle on. She keeps you up and at 'em without making you lose your teeth or any of that Midwest Tina nonsense.
"We pop a Molly, she bust it open/She seen the 'Gatti, that pussy soaking" and "I'm the life of the party/Let's get these hoes on that Molly." - French Montana and Rick Ross on "Pop That"
We come to this song for the Uncle Luke sample and stay for the barrage of Molly references. Once you pop, the fun don't stop.
"This bitch is too real/She's crushing up her pill/I'm rolling paper planes and she's rolling dollar bills/I'm tripping on some Molly in the marijuana field." - Corey Davis on "Molly on my Tongue."
Everyone needs a little smoke with their Molly, it keeps the jitters away. We just love this image of bro getting down with his hoe in whatever hotel room, them totally skeeting out into the wee hours. No doubt, sounds like a Molly party.
"Molly on my rider, that's unnecessary." - Childish Gambino on "Unnecessary."
Just because we don't "need" it ... That doesn't mean we shouldn't include a lil' Molly on the official tour rider. In fact, we're kinda hoping Mr. Gambino is referencing some sort of real-life experience ... Evian, Ring Pops, MDMA.
"Palms rise to the universe/As we moonshine and Molly/Feel the warmth we'll never die/We're like diamonds in the sky." - Rihanna on "Diamonds."
We know Rihanna is a good girl gone bad, but you really shouldn't mix your homemade, backwoods alcohol with Ms. Molly. That's a recipe for dehydrated disaster.
"Been rollin' for what two days and/Been grinding on my teeth, sipping on this water bottle/Looking for your bitch for relations/Put Molly under my tongue/Now she wanna French kiss." - Danny Brown on "Piss Test."
Juicy J be getting trippy, and his buddy Danny Brown is right with him on this A-Trak hit. And while Danny knows them hoes love the Molly, he also knows you can't just give it to her. You gotta make her work for it.
"So let's enjoy/Let the X destroy your spinal cord/So it's not a straight line no more/Till we walk around looking like some wind-up dolls/Shit's sticking out of our backs like a dinosaur/Shit, six hits won't even get me high no more/So bye for now/I'm going to try to find some more." - Eminem on "Drug Ballad"
This might just be the best ecstacy reference of all time, if only because of the unrelenting realness. Yeah, Eminem gets fucked up, but he doesn't paint some beautiful, harmless picture of what he's doing. He knows he's messing with his brain, he just doesn't care.
