Post Malone Says Hip-Hop Is Not a Place for Substance… Gets Dragged for Dear Life

Tell us how you really feel

Maybe Post Malone was out sick the day Jay-Z dropped 4:44. Maybe Chance The Rapper isn’t deep enough for him. Maybe when Lil Uzi Vert said “And I got a colorful aura/ Like I got neon guts/Dark energy, we don’t touch,” Malone didn’t feel it!

Several things could have confused Post Malone in such a way that he began feeling like hip-hop wasn’t deep enough. During an interview with Poland’s NewOnce, the “White Iverson” artist shared an opinion that is getting him slammed left and right.

“If you’re looking for lyrics, if you’re looking to cry, if you’re looking to think about life, don’t listen to hip-hop,” Malone said. “There’s great hip-hop songs where they talk about life and they really spit that real shit, but right now, there’s not a lot of people talking about real s–t.”

Malone — who is a hip-hop artist himself — continued his thoughts, saying the genre is more feel-good music than anything else. “Whenever I’m trying to have a good time and stay in a positive mood, I listen to hip-hop,” he said. “Because it’s fun. I think hip-hop is important because it brings people together in a beautiful, happy way.”

While the “Too Young” artist touched on other things like Kurt Cobain, Elvis Presley, Kylie Jenner, and Kanye West — another hip-hop artist who assumably isn’t “talking about real s–t” these days — nothing struck a nerve with fans like his controversial comments about hip-hop.
