Post Malone sat down with Bootleg Kev after one of his recent Hollywood Dreams Tour shows, and the pair chopped it up about Post's upcoming debut album Stoney. When asked about the long delay in releasing the album, Post noted that he was just trying to get things right. "We're just figuring things out," he said. "I think we're making a sound that's super fresh, hip, original, very fly. You can hip-hop to it, you can crunk to it, you can really just get down to it. It's all just super lit."
When talk turned to guest features on the project, Post rattled off a few names, including Kehlani and Pharrell, as well as the previously known Justin Bieber and Quavo. "We're working on some very special things," Post said, before adding that fans would "have to see" if any of his work with Kanye West makes it on to the album. He also revealed that the Quavo-assisted track "Congratulations" that he recently debuted at one of his shows is produced by Metro Boomin.
In addition to talking about his debut album, Post briefly touched on his XXL cover controversy, reiterating his stance that he turned down a spot on the cover because he didn't want to fly out to New York to do it. XXL's Editor-in-Chief Vanessa Satten has previously stated otherwise, but it looks like Post is sticking to his story.
Along with all of this, Post goes into more detail about working with Kanye and Pharrell, cooking up his debut album, and what else fans can expect from him in the coming months. You can check out the entire interview with Post Malone and Bootleg Kev in the video above.
