UPDATED 12:53 p.m. ET: A day after criticizing Post Malone on Instagram, Hot 97's Peter Rosenberg continued his critique on air. You can see his follow-up below.
Original story below:
"If you're looking to cry, if you're looking to think about life, don't listen to hip-hop," Malone 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."
Those comments were met with criticism from Earl Sweatshirt, Vince Staples, and, well, me, among others. Rosenberg addressed them as well, putting them in the context of Post getting a "pass" from hip-hop fans for a variety of previous offenses—wearing braids, which is at the very least a controversial thing for a white person to do; and casually using the n-word in a now-deleted Snap.
"Post Malone, I'm done giving you passes bro," Rosenberg said. "You got a pass for braids, which is not common. You got a pass for the n-word thing that happened on Snapchat... So, either leave hip-hop and go make music in another genre, or start showing respect for hip-hop."
"Hip-hop isn't the music you go to for emotion or important things?" he continued. "Hip-hop has been the soundtrack of every important day of my life, and many people like me and all around the world of every different background. So, start showing respect for hip-hop, or get out."
