Trinidad James' song "All Gold Everything" is getting a lot of attention these days and the phrase he spits "popped a Molly I'm sweating, whoo!" is very popular on social media and in the streets.
"Molly," short for molecule is MDMA (ecstacy) in powder or crystalline form. It has become the "it" drug in hip hop. Many artists from Juicy J to Kanye West have named dropped the drug in songs, but it's Trinidad who is getting the most attention for it.
MTV spoke to the Atlanta rapper about the drug and why he thinks it has become so popular.
"All the people are like, 'I don't know what it is, but every time I hear the song, I just wanna do it,' " James said. "That's a terrible excuse, but go 'head, get high, go 'head. Blame Trinidad, blame it on me."
James said it's not a drug he abuses. He thinks it's just a good way to get a party started.
"I might go months without doin' anything and then I'll be like, you know, when I'm in L.A., I wanna party with these people. I feel like I can't get turnt up fast enough, I'm just gonna do this," he said.
Juicy J, Chris Webby and others also chimed in on the drug's popularity.
"I just think people are more open now. Back then, some people were just keeping it on the low and doin' it how they want to do it," Juicy J added. "Now people are a little more like, 'F*ck that.' This year everybody's like, 'F*ck that sh*t, yeah I'm on Molly.' "
"Now it's a like super acceptable thing," Webby says. "Before Molly it was just straight E pills, but now Molly is just so much cleaner. That's become the new trend."
