Lol he’s pushing it, give it a few years he gon be full country and hate blacks lol”, with Post replying in an interview, claiming that his white skin has been “used against him.” In January 2018, Post went on an intoxicated rant against people who describe him as a culture vulture. In an interview with GQ several days later, Post said “there’s a struggle being a white rapper.”
  • In a November 2017 interview with Polish media outlet NewOnce, Malone said that modern hip-hop music lacks “people talking about real shit” and added that “if you’re looking to think about life, don’t listen to hip-hop.” He received social media backlash for his comments, including from fellow rappers such as Lil B and Vince Staples. Malone later appeared in a video on Twitter, saying that the reason for his comments was that it was a “beer-tasting” interview and going on to say that he loves hip-hop. NewOnce, however, denied that claim, stating that Malone barely drank at all during the interview.
