You don’t pop a molly. No one with any experience calls it “a molly”. Do you snort “a cocaine”? Do you smoke “a weed”? Do you inject “a dope”?

Pop a molly, go ahead. Sweating is probably the last thing on your mind. Sure, you’re doing it, but it’s around as notable as your educational credentials if you rap about this shit.
Then, there’s Rick Ross. Fucking hell. Tying MDMA with date rape? Are you fucking serious?

Rick Ross has never taken molly in his life. And if he has, it’s rather clear to me that someone has drugged him with something that’s clearly not molly. And if he’s taken it repeatedly, then he needs to find a new drug dealer. While that happens, he and other rappers who think it’s cool to replace every drug with “a molly” in their tracks should
