Monday, Post Malone offered some candid advice to those questioning his place in music: "Suck my fucking dick," he tweeted, informing listeners that he does this shit "because I love to do this shit." Though Post didn't outright mention it, many interpreted the fellatio advice as a response to listeners who weren't thrilled by comments he gave in a recent interview with Newonce.
Tuesday night, Earl Sweatshirt—who's been critical of Post in the past—tweeted out his thoughts in response to Mass Appeal's excerpt from the interview.
Back in January 2016, following the surprise smash status of Post's breakout single "White Iverson," Earl revealed he wasn't exactly the biggest fan.
In the Newonce interview in question, Post discussed the vibe of the music he's currently working on before diving into his personal mood-based listening habits. "If you're looking to cry, if you're looking to think about life, don't listen to hip-hop," he said. "There's great hip-hop songs where they talk about life and they really spit that real shit, but right now, you know, there's not a lot of people talking about shit. Whenever I wanna cry, whenever I wanna sit down and have a nice cry, I'll listen to some, like, Bob Dylan." Post went on to describe today's hip-hop as "important because it brings people together in a happy way."
Amid the wave of headlines focused on those comments, Post finally dropped the official video for his current hit "Rockstar" featuring 21 Savage and a ton of fucking blood.
Post is also readying Beerbongs & Bentleys for a Dec. 1 release. We probably shouldn't expect an Earl feature.
