Rick Ross making junior theme a whole lot easier...

"Put molly all in her champagne, she ain't even know it. I took her home and I enjoy that, she ain't even know it...Got a hundred rounds in this AR, you don't even know it"-Rick Ross

These words featured in Rocko's mixtape Gift of Gab 2 appeared in a Rick Ross verse on the track entitled: "U.O.N.E.O." I've been inquiring why hip hop has evolved since its birth in the 1970s and found this lyric encompassing every aspect of the rap game that has changed. Ross' first line, "Put molly all in her champagne, she ain't even know it" is referring to slipping a woman drugs into her beverage, called 'Molly'. ABC News Radio explains, "Molly, which has become a popular reference in rap music, is the so-called "pure" form of MDMA, a chemical often found in Ecstasy.  MDMA characteristically produces feeling of euphoria, energy and a closeness toward others." Right here, Rick Ross is talking about drugs, and sexual objectivity of women; two major evolutions of rap.


The last line of the quote, "Got a hundred rounds in this AR, you don't even know it" is referring to an AR assault weapon with powerful firing capabilities. This weapon is used by gangs everyday, took the lives of 12, and injured nearly 60 people in the movie theatre shooting in Aurora, CO. In one line of a song, Rick Ross talks about sex, drugs, and violence. This clearly wasn't the way rap music was originally... Despite apologizing for a "misunderstanding", his lyrics couldn't have left a clearer message about what rap music has become…
