Good old Post. The dude that entered the music scene guns blazing looking like a raccoon fresh out of the trash can.

What do you think of the dude and his music? Personally, I cannot stand listening to his music. It's incredibly juvenile and sterile. Really not much going on there. Seems like he just kinda picks two chords and a melody and sticks to it for like 3 minutes.

The guy is pretty talented though IMO. Some of his more acoustic stuff is great. I also heard a recording of him singing Santoria at a bar or something and it was actually really good. He's wasting his talent.

What do you think Era?

I don't actively listen to him but there are a couple of his songs on my driving playlist. Rockstar especially is perfect for a night drive.

I don't listen to the lyrics tho, just the beat and the ''vocal melody'' if I can put it that way.

Dude puts out catchy music and seems like a down to earth dude. He catches a lot of shit for being a culture vulture but man if someone handed me millions of dollars I wouldn't say no

Dunno, he exists.

I don't check for his stuff specifically but I've liked a couple tracks I've heard at the bar etc

I really loved Stoney. Album blew me away when I listened to it.But I think he has been fairly stagnant since and hasnt really evolved. I think he is talented and has a unique voice. Though its fairly obvious he is a pop artist who has songs created for him. Louis Bell is the mastermind behind him.

As a person...

He has already paved the wave for his inevitable turn to rock/country. Which makes the culture vulture comments ring true. His opinion that if you want to feel something or listen to real music or whatever you shouldnt listen to rap was absolute garbage and false. Wouldnt surprise me to see him go full kid rock at some point. It makes him draping himself in hip hop culture to get his break all the more gross.

It's not really for me, but he has a good formula. Put the hook at the front of your song so it is a radio hit.


He looks like what being crossfaded feels like.

Yeah, I feel that big time. He's already said Bob Dylan is a huge inspiration for him (just like he is for any white dude with a guitar) so I fully expect him to start moving in a more rock sound direction.

But yeah, the "real music" quote of his was really weird. The dude makes that type of music yet he is trashing it? Huh?

That song that was in Into The Spiderverse was catchy, but that's about it. Maybe it's because I'm older, but I don't really like his music.

Only good song he’s made

also, he’s an idiot. Like literally stupid. Watch any interview. One of those people that doesn’t know shit about politics, but has commented on it before

he's Ed Sheeran if you replaced songwriting ability with face tattoos and started covering him in XXL for some reason, but he says dumb shit about rap in interviews way more

He's what I imagine a lot of those rock-rap acts from the early aughts would sound like if they came up today. So yeah, 2019 Crazy Town. I don't even think he's horrible, necessarily, but definitely not for me

I hear his music and think “this is okay”. That’s about it. He really comes off as a dumbass anytime I’ve heard him talk too.

I’ve only heard Better Now which is bad and he looks like a teamster went to spring break and he also seems to not take seriously the genre that brought him his success so he seems pretty wack imo.

He constantly looks like he needs a shower and I don't like his music or the music that has been inspired by him.

He’s absolutely disgusting. I wouldn’t want to be in the same building as him, I’d probably be repulsed by the smell.

Nice guy, okay music though.

He’s likes the nickelback for his genre. I don’t seek out his music as it’s not anything special but I don’t find it annoying.

Dude looks the personification of an old gas station urinal though.

Not for me. I don’t like his vibe, his look or music. I don’t hate the guy but I will never intentionally listen to his music.

It's trap-flavored pop. A little candy here and there is whatever.

Don't really care for the guy.

I don't listen to his music so no opinion whatsoever. Heard the name multiple times but never cared enough to go looking for it.

Don't think I'll ever listen to his albums, but his singles are a favourite of one my drinking groups. Better now, Rockstar, Congratulations are all great to hear on a chill night out

Hahaha, this right here. Also mentioned, stellar production team. Culture Vulture, personified.

Trash. Rockstar works because of the beat and vocal melody and that's it. That whole segment of rap needs to go away. Give me Cozz, Russ, 6lack, and Smino any day.
