Post Malone Fires Back at Critics Who Call Him a Culture Vulture
Post Malone's recent comments about the struggle of being a White rapper have once again landed the "Rockstar" artist in hot water and he's now firing back at his critics.
During a recent appearance at Miami's LIV Nightclub, Post launched into a full-blown rant, calling out his critics and giving advice to his fans. "There's a lot of people that wanted to talk down on me, and laugh at me, and call me a 'culture vulture,' and say that I don't appreciate hip-hop, that I don't do nothing for the culture," Post said.
"And I always say, congratu-fucking-lations, man," he continued. "I guess this is me telling y'all to live your fucking best life, don't listen to what the fuck nobody has to say about you. 'Cause you are the fucking shit, and you can do whatever the fuck you want to do if you believe in your fucking self!"
Last week, the Syracuse, N.Y. artist rubbed many the wrong way when he discussed the hardships of being a White rapper in hip-hop. "I definitely feel like there's a struggle being a White rapper," said Post.
"But I don't want to be a rapper," he continued. "I just want to be a person that makes music. I make music that I like, and I think that kicks ass, that I think people who fuck with me as a person and as an artist will like."
While Post's comments continue to get him in trouble, the rapper is having no problem as far as music goes. Earlier this month, Malone broke the Spotify Global record with "Rockstar." As of Jan. 9, the song had been at the No. 1 spot for 108 straight days.
