Rap perpetuates drug culture. Not dance music.
By now you've likely heard about molly -- the much buzzed about street name for the drug MDMA, which was recently linked to two deaths at the Electronic Zoo festival held in New York City over Labor Day weekend.
Molly, which is short for "molecule," is ideally pure MDMA, but is the basically the same ecstasy of the '90s that has been rebranded as a 'purer' more gentle party drug, though its users have no guarantee they are buying unadulterated MDMA.
As the drug seemingly gains popularity, there are those who say it's no coincidence as some of todays biggest artistsare dropping references about the drug in their biggest hit. And you have everyone from former disney darling Miley Cirusto Kanye West singing about popping a Molly.

Rock and all that other screamo bullshit perpetuates emo kids who hate life and cut themselves.. And you how many rockstars do cocaine and shit. I found that the rock culture actually do pills more than the rap culture. We mainly talk about weed. You guys are the crazy asses that be on Ecstasy and "bared out".
Haters always gonna hate.

When you read or hear the word, "Rave," what's the first thing tht comes to your mind? Alot of people don't immediately think of dance music, they think of the drugs that are commonly associated with the genre of edm. And I hate that. I hate it I hate it I hate it I hate it. And because of that, whenever you say you are (for the sake of argument) going to a rave, people just assume you're going to get high on whatever.
Raves are about appreciating the music, and enjoying the experience of being with hundreds and hundreds of other people that love that same music.
It's honestly a real shame that an entire genre gets basically labeled as drug users just because of a few dumb kids over dosing at festivals and concerts.

I've been to a Rave before and it was actually kinda cool. No drugs at all. It's been a while:
I honestly just hate stereotypes in general, it just sets me off honestly. I understand what you mean now .

Yet again, in some areas of the US, the stereotypes aren't just stereotypes. Sometimes they are exactly correct. For example, I recently attended the Wiz Khalifa concert Riverbend Music Center on the river. When you think of Wiz, you think of weed because all Wiz raps about is bud and smoking and all that jazz. Well, low and behold, there was so much marijuana at the concert. Everybody, not just a few people, but a good portion, was smoking marijuana.
Sometimes it's not just being stereotypical, it's being correct.
OT: Now with the whole Molly thing, I've never personally experienced it. I've seen people on it and it just didn't appeal to me. It just didn't look like a good time to me. I wouldn't recommend it, but that's just me.
