Gun-obsessed white rapper Post Malone got some criticism this week for comments he made about hip-hop.
In an interview he began by saying he has a lot of emotions because he's white, he said "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. There's great hip-hop songs where they talk about life and they spit that real shit, but right now, there's not a lot of people talking about real shit. Whenever I want to cry, whenever I want to sit down and have a nice cry, I'll listen to some Bob Dylan. Whenever I'm trying to have a good time and stay in a positive mood, I listen to hip-hop. Because it's fun. I think hip-hop is important because it brings people together in a beautiful, happy way."
The 22 year old, who apparently calls himself "Posty", made a video explaining his thoughts the day after tweeting about not being obligated to explain his thoughts:
it's crazy that after all this time im still being questioned. suck my fucking dick i don't have to explain shit. i do this shit because i love to do this shit.— Beerbongs & Bentleys (@PostMalone) November 21, 2017

His main points:
-It was a beer tasting interview so he was drunk and doesn't really remember saying it
-"Who am I to tell you you should feel a certain way when listening to something?"
-He just likes to listen to Bob Dylan when he wants to cry.
-"My last hip-hop album was fuckin' hip-hop. My next hip-hop album is fuckin' hip-hop. I love hip-hop. I make hip-hop. I wanna take this genre and stretch it so far so that people who may not listen to it, listen to it."
-He said what he was trying to say was that with the exception of a handful of artists most artists are all saying the same thing and they aren't saying anything meaningful.
He also responded to one woman who didn't buy his video.
lmaooooo what i said was that when ur drunk u don't speak as u would when ur sober.... makes sense to me— Beerbongs & Bentleys (@PostMalone) November 23, 2017
never in my life did i expect to make one cent off of my music... it just so happened to turn out this way, and the fact that people like my music isn't my fault.— Beerbongs & Bentleys (@PostMalone) November 23, 2017
if you watch the interview i said that hip hop brings people to together in a special, happy way. overlook that and go for the throat. i was saying that when i am alone and reflecting i listen to bob Dylan. like it or not a lot of artists aren't talking about anything these days.— Beerbongs & Bentleys (@PostMalone) November 23, 2017
want to be a part of? people accepted me for who i am not who im trying to be im just a fucking dude making music, people with open minds/hearts helped me get to where i am. because they actually know who i am. people who don't judge a person off of some stupid shit like this.— Beerbongs & Bentleys (@PostMalone) November 23, 2017
i want to know where the word capitalizing came from. why can't anybody make the music that they want to?— Beerbongs & Bentleys (@PostMalone) November 23, 2017
