Joe Budden Talks Molly On Fox 5 News

With the entire rap game musically high off Molly, Joe Budden gave a sobering testimonial on NY’s Fox 5 News. He spoke on the dangers of the drug and the effects it had on his life. Sweat to that.

“I didn’t see a problem with the fact that maybe five days would go by without sleeping,” Budden says. “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.┬áIt just altered your thinking process dramatically and for a thinker like myself that was like nothing I’d ever experienced before.”

    yeah ecstasy is a crazy drug. I did it once and I realize the minute I hit the peak, and then every minute after that I felt this sense of fear that “I’m not going to feel that good again”

    Thats when I decided I’m not fucking with that drug any more. When you start fiending for the drug that you are still on, you know that shit is fucked up.

  • Butters

    The ingredients in molly can NOT be bought in a local store. And if somebody putting Meth in they molly caps they’re losing money. Molly doesn’t make you paranoid. With that said it’s not something you should do more than once a month if that. It’s basically sacraficing 2 weeks of normal behavior, thinking and emotions for one night of the most fun you’ve ever had. Sometimes that’s cool but that whole not sleeping for 5 days shyt? Hell naw. Get in…have fun, go your ass to sleep, hydrate and chill off it for a few weeks.

  • Boo Gotti

    Very brave of Joe to speak out. People need to stop taking drugs just because they heard it in a song. Nothing “swaggy” about being a druggie.

  • Donn

    IF U NEED DRUGS TO HAVE FUN YOUR JUST NOT A FUN PERSON

  • Young Guru

    Joe Budden speaks very proper (not white) but proper. Very enlightening to see a rapper speak with such decor. Big time props.

  • Realniggashit

    Devante I said the samething in 20 years will Molly be the new crack

  • warlord

    Pop the Molly loool hiphop is brain Washin the kids..

    Why not say I got a degree whoii!!

  • Chris

    Glad to see people are opening up about the dangers and true effects of this drug. I’m all for free will, and if you want to do drugs, then go nuts, but I’ve seen it billed as this harmless, safe substance, when it’s anything but.

  • GreenThumb

    i fuks wit Joe, at least he’s being honest about the shit, other artist don’t give 2 shits about they fans, that clip wit Madonna, “has anybody seen molly” she fuckin corny for that

  • poetic assasin

    Hopefully more rappers will open up and have positive messages. Budden is taking a big risk by doing so, but if it can save lives including his own then why not.

  • ***BLACK MIRROR***

    @Butters……Spoken like a true crack head. The first sign of addiction is trying to rationalize it and planning strategies for it. Point blank that shit is hard drugs…Smoke weed.

  • THE MAJESTIC NIGLET

    why the fuck cant people stick with some good weed and drink always gotta take it to that next level

  • SoloK

    Just a bunch of idiotic club kids doing what MTV, Wiz Khalifa & Tyga say is cool! let them dumb asses overdose, then we’ll see how much they party and scream out Yolo in their graves. smh

  • Chronic

    Molly won’t be the new crack cause you dont become anywhere near as physically dependent on them as crack.

  • koO

    Good to see someone take a stand against MDMA.

    FUCK rappers promoting the use of chemical substances.

  • Butters

    @BlackMirror….Spoken like a person who has NO CLUE what the hell they talking about. Niggas out here judging callin people crackheads and they be hooked on all other shit, smoking cigs, gettin drunk, online porn, even sugar can have negative effects that you don’t even realize. Since those are legal nobody calls them crackheads tho. And weed can do just as much damage to your life as any other drug. Go out and do some living before you sit on a comment section and judge others. By the way I’m a FORMER recreational user and since I know niggas is gonna use it anyway I may as well give them some advice. Listen twice as much as you talk son.

  • JS

    He should of spoke about that angel dust, he was talking about with hot 97, saying that was his favorite drug, he talking bout molly now cause its the drug most common but he on that DUst

  • DJ Semtex’s Prothsetic

  • ***BLACK MIRROR***

    @Butters…Again I say. Like a crack head…you are ADAMANTLY DEFENDING a drug that has no defined mixture…meaning that the dealers/producer can put anything in it. Including highly addictive drugs such as small portions of CRACK and METH if necessary! How do I know this…hummm. I’ll let you assume, you are the best at that shit.

    On a second note…do you know me beyond this comment tread??? To come to the conclusion that I have no life. Last time I checked I’m trying to spit knowledge and SAVE LIVES. YOU on the other hand want to convince us (the youth) that its ok. Please use at least 1% of your brain when you type and speak. I haven’t heard one fiend that didn’t claim they had control over any given drug. Hence Joe Buddens whole fucking message!!! (Slaps forehead).

    Congrats…YOU ARE USELESS. Good day sir!

  • gaz

    What kind of science is ‘ one dose could mess up your brain for life ‘ are you presenting the news to toddlers, ignorance smh, joe was honest though and a nice bit of exposure for his album

  • Blackjew

    This molly head is a fool

  • real tizalk

    mdma is an awesome drug.

  • Butters

    @Black Mirror Since I know you been refreshing like crazy waiting for my response here it is.

    I stand by my assertion that you and anyone else that simply calls someone using molly a crackhead are being dismissive and ignorant to the facts. You’re a former drug counsleor yet you’re telling people to “smoke weed”? No wonder you’re a ‘former” counselor lol.

    And it’s nice to see your CAPS LOCK works but nobody’s adamantly defending. If anything I thought I was pretty clear that Molly is not something you should do very often. As somebody who’s actually taken drugs first hand I feel it’s best to be open and honest about their effects rather than simply using scare tactics and name calling to dissuade humans from doing what comes natural by experimenting. You have your way of “spitting knowledge” and I’ll keep mine. We’ll see which one is more effective in the end.

  • ZenneZ

    “all the ingredients you need you can find in your pharmacy, so anybody can make it in their kitchen”

    ^^ LOL…oh man… what a bunch of propaganda. This amount of laughable so called “facts” in this report are laughable. They obviously dont know a thing about chemistry and did minimal research at best. this is a joke.

  • chiraq G

    the drug dealers here in chicago put some of everything in mollys. yup…pure ecstasy my ass

  • Truth Will Out

    @Black Mirror …Find your mom and slap the shit outta her. smdh. Useless!

    @itsTheRoc beat me to it, props

    I do think that part of this is genuine. I mean, this is the peak of Joe Budden’s name getting out there

    On the “rap radar” , we all know Budden, but in America, no one knows who he is. You have to realize kids who were born in 2000 are now becoming teenagers this year!
    That’s a scary thought!

    Anyway, Joe got his face on tv with a good message tho it is mixed with a VH1 show that promotes people who are drunk and fighting all the time, but it BEEZ THAT WAY

  • bingo james

    Molly often laced with drugs such as angel dust? Dumbest shit ive heard in a minute

  • Beaming

    If u a male popping molly on the regular you a faggit. That shyt is for chicks and chicks only. No and ifs or buts. Why would a male need to pop a molly? Get all horny and feel sexy like you some super model bitch? hell nahhhh Keep that shit for the females. You niggas are suspect.

  • Stan

    He deserves every type of attention, finally someone who talks the truth and doesn’t think drugs are ‘cool’!

  • NUTSONYA

    looks like Budden cant hang off the molly! ahah

    na but real shit fuck Molly, that shit is slowly retarding a whole generation

  • HollyWood

    This nigga Joe is tripping. He was on more then just molly. Molly doesn’t keep you up for 5 days unless he kept on popping or snorting it over and over. That’s just some addict shit. If you have an addictive personality you shouldn’t be trying any drug.

  • Itz Yourz

    Smh

    MDMA a.k.a Molly the supposedly purest form of extacy been around and being used by rave party/club goers way before these rappers jump on the bandwagon. It’s been around for years. Rappers want to promote it like its new and it’s the shit. You want to see the effects of that shit look at the rave heads that abused that mothefrucker. Half them got the Bobby brown side mouth due the gnawing…got the charles manson crazy eyes going on for them always being dialated….moving all types of fast because their motor skills are fucked up and can’t hold a decent conversation with you without. “Forgetting what we are talking about again”?. The shit cause brain damage…permanent.

    And that’s not to be bias because not all rave party goers are like that..but most are. At those clubs that’s where I first seen the drug and its abuse from rave parties.

    Like Nas said…all you need is one mic …to get a message or propaganda across….music is powerful and extremely influential. Rappers have most of the youth following there every move and listening intensely to them (hell even some misguided adults)they need to use a lil more discretion with the promoting of drug use and not telling real side effects after you finished “rolling” or “being on one” .

    Big up to Joe for speaking on it. But he know damn well he wasn’t crying for relapsing on no Molly on tv. Talk about that other hard shit that you dance around on the show…that Sherm…that dust…tell them how you use to get “wet” and how bad that abuse is.

  • thafuck

    tha fuck you mean this shit AIN’T made from store bought products I use ta havea guy that would make rolls in his crib them bitches came out black n shit sumtimes. Molly n rolls tha same shit, both hav kids tweakn n talkn hard n bitches will suck a birds dick on that shit. Disgusts me.
