Post Malone‘s under a lot of heat right now for his comments that stated that there’s not a lot of hip hop songs talking about “that real shit” and that he listens to Bob Dylan if he needs a nice cry. It’s sparked another culture vulture debate around this figure that is truly one of the most mainstream acts representing hip hop right now. Post’s really reached into a rare territory though, his music is classified as a rap but his fanbase is pretty pop and mainstream. Essentially, he’s got a large white fanbase and he has a lot of fans that don’t necessarily like rap but they like Post Malone. Thus I don’t think this latest controversy is going to really slow him down. It surely didn’t make Republic or Post’s team think twice about pushing back the release of the new music video for their #1 single “rockstar”. But instead of literally becoming a rockstar in this video, Post is a sword slinging samurai.
