Molly & Hip Hop

Tuesday, January 28, 2014

Radio Rookies Alejandro Estevez and Daniel Bostick—aka “Alex E. Styles” and “AR Danny”—have heard plenty about the psychedelic drug “Molly,” the street name for an allegedly pure form of MDMA or “ecstasy." As Molly has grown in popularity, so has its mention in contemporary hip-hop music.

Alex and Danny consider the relationship between music and its influence on teens while marching to the beat of their own rhymes. (Watch it here)

In this report, two students—Eddie Munoz and Jairo Gomez—tell the story of how they fell dangerously behind at their previous schools and got back on track at West Brooklyn. (Watch it here)
