Post Malone looks like the Hollywood definition of White Trash. He’s filthy but in a strangely clean way. He’s like a redneck in a glossy Harmony Korrine movie. He’s fashionable but I know that he has a favorite opossum and one raccoon he has a tense relationship with. I’m not sure if he smells or not, but if he does, he smells clean and dirty at the same time, like a Salvation Army before it opens. I know I shouldn’t trust Post Malone but his music is consistently dope. I listen to Post Malone with the worry that he’ll say the N-Word at some point. I know it’s coming, or it’s happened before, there’s literally no way possible that he hasn’t. You can’t be THAT person without saying the n-word, that’s like wearing all vineyard vines and not saying “but her emails”. Post Malone looks like the guy who brings guitars to parties and the guy who freestyles at parties poorly raised a baby together. He’s dirty and clean at the same time, like Pig Pen from Charlie Brown. We all know a white dude or two that looks just like Post Malone and we wouldn’t leave them in our houses alone. However beneath that lovably crusty exterior, there lies a whole lot of problematic speaking. He’s been called a culture vulture on several different occasions and his thoughts on Modern HipHop do not help. Instead of heaping praise to the genre that opened it’s doors to him, he acted like he was above it and really didn’t need the distinction. This is problematic as many white artists before Post Malone have made the same distinctions in order to gain more of their white fanbases trust while further alienating his (disappointed) black fanbase. Music fans with more integrity than me refuse to listen to Post Malone because of his dumb ass thoughts, however I don’t have much musical integrity as I always want to fit in, so I figured I’d give Post a shot. I felt guilty at first because of all things considered but then I let it go because he looks like a Dog that learned how to speak Human. So, with that said I pressed play on “Beerbongs and Bentleys”.
12 albums, 92 tracks
I grew up in the age where rap music was MC Hammer or Vanilla Ice, then progressing to Puff Daddy and Dr. Dre, then to 2Pac and Coolio and then Eminem, Nelly, Missy Elliott and finally Nicki Minaj. I don’t think I ever stopped listening to rap, I think I just ventured more into other burgeoning genres like EDM, world music, and new age music. Funny thing, is now, when I listen to today’s rap music, most of it sound so alien to me. But I guess the important thing, is that my 11-year old nephew and 12-year old niece are loving it! One of the current rap stars they introduced me to is Post Malone. In the soundtrack to the movie Spider-man: Into the Spider-verse, there is a wonderful song there that I like entitled “Sunflower” and when I checked the credits, it said Post Malone with Swae Lee. And I said to myself, “Oh, so this is the Post Malone they were talking about before”. I also heard about him because this particular album garnered a Grammy nomination for the coveted Album of the Year category. However, this year, they nominated eight albums, making it a very crowded field. Nevertheless, that does not take anything away from what this album has achieved, recognition from Post Malone’s peer in the Recording Academy.
Post Malone quickly became a favorite for many, many people with is debut album and now we are here with two Post Malone albums and everything is great. Beerbongs & Bentleys is the second album from the rapper and it is chock full of bops. From a list of like six featured artists to a bit of an angry, angsty rock song, the album features a lot of different sounds from the artist, and all of them work out in her favor.
Post Malone is fairly new on the music lime light. This Texan is what you would call a freshman in college or fresh meat if you know all about that life behind bars. While there is no record of him being behind bars he definitely has bars. This versatile singer/rapper sure knows his music. He sings, writes, and produces some of his music. Yes! Malone began writing his own lyrics and music when he was 16 years of old before recording his first mixtape, which he later described as "awful". Come with me as I try to dive deep into the mind of Post Malone and try to decode the messages in both this stoners name and music.
Post Malone went from being a small rapper to a big somebody in what seemed like seconds to me. I remember not knowing who he was or anything about him until one day in high school, we had a Dress as a Song Day and a freshman dressed up in all white with the word Iverson on her shirt. No one understood what it was at the time, but now we all know and we all love it. His debut album Stoney is an album I find myself playing on repeat at least once a month. From the piercing lyrics, to the fun, movable beats and rhythms, and even the unforgettable features on the tracks, the album simply has it all and was a remarkably good first impression on the music industry. Due to the fact there were so many singles we are naturally going to discuss them first before diving into the rest of the album, but fear not, you will surely love this album.
Nothing but love for Post Malone, who was able to apply talent and charisma in order to compete with all of the other noise that was cluttering the internet and radio in 2015. When I first heard “White Iverson”, I hadn’t seen the video but loved the song. I had just started to drive, and everything was so brand new. I became really interested in music and how it was made, and there were some late nights reading posts and anticipating when the next big thing or single was gonna drop. When I found out Malone’s ethnicity, it was the first time I was encouraged that any body could get into the game so long as you had good music and swag. A few years later, I’m graduating to “Congratulations” and on to a school for music production and everything has come full circle, because I really wasn’t supposed to graduate, statistically, especially because I was really messing up senior year, but hey – we made it. Now my life is more organized, because I’m a man now, not a kid, with responsibilities. Post Malone must have had the same realization at some point before he blew up.
