‘I Love Hiphop!’ – Post Malone finally addresses ‘avoid Hiphop if looking for lyrics’

Following backlash over a recent interview, in which Post Malone said that fans “looking for lyrics” should avoid hip-hop, the 22-year-old chart-topper releases a new video statement in attempt to clarify his stance.

At first, Malone appeared to say that he was intoxicated during the conversation. “It was a beer-tasting interview, so they put a lot of beer in my face and asked me what kind of beer tastes good to me, so you know, knowing me, I drank it,” he said. “Apparently I said that whenever you wanna feel something, don’t listen to hip-hop. It’s funny because who the fuck am I to tell you don’t listen to this and whenever you wanna feel something don’t listen to this? Or who am I to tell you that you should feel a certain way when listening to something?”

Malone went on to say that he prefers to cry to Bob Dylan. “What I was saying was, that when I want to sit down and cry, I listen to Bob Dylan and his guitar, just like everyone else,” he added. “No matter how hard you are, where you’re from, you’re gonna have a time where you sit back and reflect on your life and you listen to what you wanna listen to. For me, that’s Bob Dylan.”

However, he said he took issue with the notion that he doesn’t appreciate the genre that he participates in. “A lot of people saying that I don’t appreciate hip-hop or I’m taking advantage of hip-hop, my last hip-hop album was fuckin’ hip-hop. My next hip-hop album is fuckin’ hip-hop,” he continued. “I love hip-hop. I make hip-hop. I want to take this genre and stretch it so far that people who may not listen to it, listen to it.”
