Post Malone has been in the news this week for not appreciating hip-hop. “If you’re looking to cry, if you’re looking to think about life, don’t listen to hip-hop,” he said during his Newonce interview. Now, Post has taken to Twitter to clear up the comments in a two-minute video.
“It’s funny because who the fuck am I to tell you “don’t listen to this” and whenever you wanna feel something “don’t listen to this?,” he says. “Or who am I to tell you that you should feel a certain way when listening to something? What I was saying was, that when I wanna sit down and cry, I listen to Bob Dylan and his guitar.”
“I love hip-hop,” he continues. “I make hip-hop. I wanna take this genre and stretch it so far that people who may not listen to it, listen to it.”
