Washington Post decided that apparently that there’s one Post, too many.
“Post Malone is a perfect pop star for this American moment. That’s not a compliment.” Post Malone you think you know, but you had no idea.
He is literally Satan — let’s see what’s wrong with Post Malone:
You might know post Malone as the SoundCloud rapper who went triple platinum for his debut track or you might know him as the genre-bending artist combining country, grunge, hip-hop and just about everything else or you may not know him at all, but you should. Malone is huge, his album Stony beat out Michael Jackson’s Thriller for most weeks and top 10 on the top R&B hip-hop albums chart.
This is a thing the media does or people in general. They love to overplay your influence when it’s convenient and underplay it at any point. So, they’re saying that he’s bigger than Michael Jackson “Thriller”, which is not, the album is still the bestselling album of all time. Nothing has changed, he’s not even near it.
His record company Republic Records have described Malone as the Donald Trump of hip hop.
Oh my god, he is literally Donald Trump, because he said: if you’re looking to think about life, don’t listen to hip-hop. My life is ruined, Post Malone.
His music – one of the shallowest bastardizations of rap to date, and I don’t say that lightly.
Washington Post published this whole article, which it’s not bad, but it’s written like a blog post hate piece. I get it, you don’t like something that’s popular and I can 100% understand. But why is Washington Post posting this? It’s so cringy. Trying to steer it like he’s connected with Donald Trump somewhere and that his influence is somehow corresponding it’s this bizarre. Just following by him online, he seems like such a sweetheart.
Why is Washington Post posting about how shallow his lyrics are and how dumb and young his fans are and how bad his performances are? It’s always been like that, pop music has always been shallow and it’s always been dumb and that’s what people want. It just sounds like another example of old people not understanding the younger and this has always been the case.
Don’t get me wrong, I actually agree with a lot of points on the article and I’m not saying it’s bad in itself. However, I think going after Post Malone and mixing it with politics is pathetic.
