I'm not gonna lie, I never took this guy seriously and thought he was a joke. I was wrong. He puts out some good, catchy music and seems like a really nice dude. Will give it a listen.

Fantastic album. Post Malone is truely our generations Bob Dylan. I love you Austin. ♥️
Ugh. No way. Bob Dylan actually had something to say.

Also on the counter is the November issue of Guns & Ammo, which catches my eye because there's been talk of visiting a gun range later on – something Malone does often. "I love shooting," he says. "The feeling is pure  . . . inebriation. It's like hitting a punching bag to let off steam."

Turns out that today he just wants to stay in, "but I can show you what I got here if you want," he says, at which point he leads me to a walk-in closet, which is where I learn that Malone owns a disconcerting amount of weaponry. "This is an M14 – the gun Navy SEALs use," he says, placing a chunky rifle in my hands. He takes it back, hands over a Walther PPK – "James Bond's gun" – with decorative engraving down the barrel. Next up are a .44 Desert Eagle hand cannon and an M1911 pistol, then two gold-plated Glocks – "I'd never actually shoot these." Finally, there's his Cobalt AR-15, an assault rifle, specially modified to pass California regulations, that he's particularly proud of. "Looks like something out of Halo, right?"
I say "holy shit" a lot, and ask several variations on a question: Why does he have all these guns? "They're fun, they're practical, and bad shit happens," he says. "If you hurt me, I'm gonna hurt you back." Has anyone made threats against him? He shakes his head. "Just being in the public eye. I have a lot of valuable shit. I have a lot of friends I wanna protect."

Also: "The world is going to shit. They're taking away a lot of our rights. We have a shitty thing going on in the White House – I don't like Trump. But I don't think it's just him. Something's coming."
It is mere weeks after America's worst mass shooting in modern history – a train of thought he anticipates: "A lot of people are sensitive about it these days, but it's an American right to own a gun. It kinda sucks that now we have to live in fear of going out to a concert, but there'll always be bad people, and if bad people want firearms, they'll get 'em no matter what."

I wasn't expecting to debate gun control with Post Malone, but I tell him that, when I learned that the Las Vegas shooter used a so-called "bump stock" to effectively turn his rifle fully automatic, I couldn't understand why anyone would need a weapon like that. Malone contemplates this. "I don't know. ... Get tighter groupings, show off your aim to your buddies at target practice?" He ruminates a bit more, then shrugs and smiles. "I don't know, man. I don't have all the answers – I'm just trying to get my money and get out."

Or what about the time he claimed it was "a struggle being a white rapper?"
“I definitely feel like there’s a struggle being a white rapper. But I don’t want to be a rapper. I just want to be a person that makes music,” he says to GQ. “I make music that I like and I think that kicks ass, that I think the people who fuck with me as a person and as an artist will like.”

or when he said not to listen to hip hop if you wanted heartfelt lyrics
“If you’re looking for lyrics… Don’t listen to hip hop,”

“Beerbongs and Bentleys” certainly harkens back to Dylan’s timeless classic album “Assplugs and Acuras”.
Old Dylan
Come, you masters of war
You that build the big guns
You that build the death planes
You that build all the bombs
You that hide behind walls
You that hide behind desks
I just want you to know
I can see through your masks
New Dylan
Ayy, I've been fuckin' hoes and poppin' pillies
Man, I feel just like a rockstar (star)
Ayy, ayy, all my brothers got that gas
And they always be smokin' like a Rasta
Fuckin' with me, call up on a Uzi
And show up, man them the shottas
When my homies pull up on your block
They make that thing go grrra-ta-ta-ta (pow, pow, pow)
Both are so profound.

My hot take is.....Post's whole shtick is getting really dated. Rockstar is overplayed. The rest of the album is filler. He's a one hit wonder (white iverson) for sure.

Also it's 2018 we shouldn't be giving white rappers a platform

"It's 2018 we shouldn't be giving white rappers a platform." What the fuck does that even mean? Post doesn't make good music, I'm not going to defend him as a rapper but him being white doesn't restrict him from rapping. Hip hop doesn't belong to black people. It's art, and pop music.

The track with Swae Lee is a bop. Y'all are gonna be hearing that on all the IG thot stories this summer

The whole album is pretty samey and too long. But I never really expected a solid, AOTY project here, just a few good tracks here and there and that's what we've got tbh. Maybe it'll grow on me though

He appropriates black culture and fashion. I don't think a white kid (with ignorant views, as per most of his interviews) should be allowed to do that, given the history of this country.

white iverson was his only organically viral hit, everything else (congratulations, rockstar) was pushed along by radio and streaming platforms to get traction
they were still huge hits regardless. rockstar was one of the biggest songs of the year. every song pushed by a major artist is pushed by radio and streaming platforms.

He's a fraud who was doing folk music a few years ago, no doubt. But your initial argument was that "we" shouldn't be giving white rappers a platform, in general, not exclusive to Post. Post is free to make whatever music he wants, and white people rapping doesn't inherently mean they are appropriating something.

For the record I think he's trash and has no respect for hip hop (as evident in his comment about rap lyricism). He's doing it to make money. But a lot of rappers are doing that these days, with no interest or basic understanding of the genre. And most of them are black...

Album is dope so far for me. It’s what I needed this morning coming off a bad case of tonsillitis. It’s a smooth listen, enjoying it for what it is.

What the fuck is this? I'm a white rapper. I got ideas in my head and songs in my heart. I pour my sweat and blood into my music and performances. I love hip hop. I should stop though, because white people shouldn't rap? Fuck outta here, hip-hop is for everybody.

And besides, Post Malone isn't even really much of a rapper, more of a popstar/singer who sings over trap beats imo.

You definitely have something against this dude when you downplay his hits as not being “organically viral” hits. Who the fuck actually says that?

“Hey I see you have a few songs that charted well but they don’t count because they weren’t viral so really you’re just a one hit wonder “

I really enjoyed the opening track, the ty dollar sign track and "otherside" from this album, overall I thought it was a pretty decent first listen, hoping more tracks grow on repeated listening.

Hopefully this means we get to see the PC Jayz2Cents built for him to commemorate the album. Watercooled with beer, anyone?

I'm with you but think about the crazy purity tests people put some rappers through is super unfair. It's crazy, especially in an age where we can literally go back and find photos of Rick Ross working as an overweight correctional officer. Skip to years later and dude literally claims to have ties to the biggest drug traffickers in South America. He is still doing this act while buying Wing Stop franchises. Vic Mensa fronted a punk group before breaking out as a hip hop star and people don't look at him as some sort of profiteer. How long was Lil Wayne rapping before he decided at 15 that he wanted to be a rapper? And then combing through quotes as some sort of reason to discount him? That's just bending over backwards to make something fit your argument. Do you think Janelle Monae wants to be known as an R&B singer? Do you think Moses Sumney wants to be put in that box? There's plenty of good reasons for an artist who has a ton of crossover pop success to be known as more than just a rapper.
