Slaughterhouse's Joe Budden recently delved into his reasoning behind falling back on popping Molly and said he is one hundred percent drug-free these days.
Joey admitted he could not comprehend the music industry's presumptions about his perceived dependency on using drugs.
"I don't do drugs," Budden said when asked why he quit popping Molly. "Period. It's always, it's always, that's the part that throws me for a loop, the hip-hop industry has never known me to be on drugs, ever. I had a drug-induced summer this past year and everybody's like, 'Oh word.' I've been talking about this sh*t since 2002. It's nothing new. Some people can function, I'm just dysfunctional and self-destructive, period. So I wouldn't need anything to add to that." (This Is 50)
Last month, Budden dished out battling drugs, especially with respect to popping Molly.
"I didn't see a problem with the fact that maybe five days would go by without sleeping. I didn't see a problem with the fact that maybe I was hallucinating at times. I didn't see a problem with the fact that I just couldn't get up and walk sometimes. It just altered your thinking process dramatically, and for a thinker like myself, that was like nothing I'd ever experienced before. ... Now everyone is speaking about Molly like it's the thing to do. I thought it was important for somebody, anybody, to stand up and say, 'you know, I did that, it's corny.' I'm just hoping that at the end of the day, it won't be me versus the entire music industry when it comes to who a 13-year-old should listen to regarding drugs." (Fox 5)
A few weeks back, actress Meagan Good hopped onto Twitter to point out the negative effects of the fad drug.
Molly, the pure powder or crystal form of MDMA that is known for causing an euphoric effect, has been made popular in rap songs like Kanye West's "Mercy" and Trinidad James' "All Gold Everything." However, 31-year-old Good is not happy with the rise of the drug's popularity. "Popped da Molly, I got permanent psychosis, irreversible sexual dysfunction and brain bleeding WHOO," Good tweeted Thursday, changing the lyrics to James' song that has seemingly increased the drug's popularity.

Atlanta's Trinidad James recently lashed back at critics blaming him for making the drug trendy off a reference on his "All Gold Everything" record.
"Grow the f*ck up man, I mean come on bruh. I'm not the first person to ever say something about Molly, I guarantee I'm not. All I was speaking about is my own experience. When I say, 'Popped a Molly, I'm sweating' or whatever, n*gga, I said that because within that same month of making that song, that was my first time trying Molly and that's what happen when I god d*mn took a Molly. That's all, I'm not telling your kids to go out there and do no d*mn Molly. It's all on you how you raise your kids, Trinidad James don't raise your d*mn kids. That's how it made me feel, though. ... How I felt, that's just how real my music is, I didn't just tell you, I gave you the experience. ... I'm not the walking Molly spokesperson. Get the f*ck out of here. That's crazy. People made me hate Molly, I don't even want to look at it. If I see any time of white powder I just walk away." (Shade 45)
