(AllHipHop News) Post Malone is still catching heat for his comments about the culture. During a recent interview, the "Rockstar" performer suggested fans wanting emotional or thoughtful music shouldn't listen to Hip Hop.
"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," said Post. "There’s great Hip Hop songs where they talk about life and they spit that real sh-t. But right now, there’s not a lot of people talking about sh-t."
The Texas native added, "Whenever I want to cry, whenever I want to sit down and have a nice cry, I’ll listen to some Bob Dylan."
Hot 97's Peter Rosenberg decided to address those comments on Instagram. The veteran radio personality posted a video giving Post an ultimatum.
"Post Malone, I'm done giving you passes. Even though I like you in person - we've had nice conversation before - you're out of passes. That's over," stated Rosenberg. "You got a pass for braids, which is not common. You got a pass for the n-word thing that happened on Snapchat. We gave you a pass even though all the tattoos of the artists you love are all white rock stars, none [are] related to Hip Hop at all. So, either leave Hip Hop and go make music in another genre, or start showing respect for Hip Hop.”
He continued, "Hip Hop isn't the music you go to for emotion and important things? Hip Hop has been the soundtrack of every important day of my life, and many people like me and all around the world of every different background. So, start showing respect for Hip Hop, or get out. No more passes for Post Malone. You're done.”
