Would YOU know what a molly was if not for hip-hop?
The impact music, in general, but hip-hop specifically, has on culture is far more profound than many of us realize. You can blame parents all day long but that won't change the fact that the child is using hip-hop as his/her baby-sitter.
hip-hop has definitely increased the popularity of molly, but it's not like it was non-existant before. even before the molly song, trinidad james song, pop that, etc. molly was starting to make waves in the dubstep/rave scene. that's how i first heard of it. hip-hop is just extending its influence into the worthless sack of **** population group.
i personally hate songs that are dedicated to doing drugs it's like wiz khalifa would be a nobody if that type of music wasn't popular. Can't get into a lot of detail since I'm in class, but it's just really annoying when I read youtube comments after listening to a song and the comment being "I can totally smoke to this."
And while on the topic of The Weeknd I think I'm one of the few who is not a fan. The voice is too high and weird for my liking, some of his stuff I like because from a musical stand point the dude is talented as ****, I just am not a big fan.
