Post Malone Is Still Confused About Why Lil B Went at Him on Twitter
A few weeks ago, Lil B came from out of nowhere to criticize Post Malone for, in his mind, not being hip-hop. At the time, Post made it clear he didn't believe the Bay Area rapper was behind the tweets, and now, almost a month later, the rapper has once again voiced his confusion about the matter. In a new interview on The Dana Cortez Show, Post says he still doesn't understand the motive behind Lil B's diss, and says the tweets felt like an out-of-character move for the Based God.
"I don't know what happened, because Lil B has always had nothing but nice things to say," says Post, whose Stoney album continues to do numbers. "It's a mystery. Whether it's if he [was] hacked, or if he's not. But Lil B is such a positive dude, and I don't think he would really talk smack."
Lil B's original Twitter rant pretty much called out Post's artistic integrity. "Post Malone is slowly turning into a white dude! Lol he’s pushing, it give it a few years he gon be full country and hate blacks lol," he tweeted at the time. "Only person who was white and seemed to keep it real to everyone is Eminem !!!! He a older white dude now but he legit ! Love u," he continued. "Even Miley Cyrus was like fuck this black peole shit I’m tapping in with my white country family! Started crying about rap lol."
Post quickly responded by telling the Lil B account he thought it was a hacker behind the tweets. Lil B quickly responded to let him know this wasn't the case, and here we are today still trying to understand the lilttle cyber-assault.
Asked if he feels being White in hip-hop has been held against him, Post says yes and explains why. "Especially coming into the game and being so young and not really having an identity. Being a young kid, there's so much going on around you and it's so easy to be someone else or something and want to be something you're not," he says. "But coming into my own and really figuring out who I am and what kind of music I want to make and how I want to really shift the culture and shift the genre... now I think, with this last album, I've shut a lot of people up that just wanted to call me a cultural appropriator or a one hit wonder. It doesn't bother me anymore that people question me. I just want to keep making the best music I can."
