Post Malone was called out by Rosenberg yesterday afternoon (Nov 29), following some comments made by the artist that he did not take fondly.
It all began with some comments made in an interview with Newonce where it seemed like he talked down on hip hop as a genre.
“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.”
He later cleared it up with some comments on social media.
“It was a beer-tasting interview, so they put a lot of beer in my face and asked me what kind of beer tastes good to me, so you know, knowing me, I drank it. And apparently I said that whenever you wanna feel something, don’t listen to hip-hop. And it’s funny because who the fuck am I to tell you don’t listen to this and whenever you wanna feel something don’t listen to this? Or who am I to tell you that you should feel a certain way when listening to something?”
“A lot of people saying that I don’t appreciate hip-hop, or I’m taking advantage of hip-hip. My last hip-hop album was f***ng hip-hop,” he said. “My next hip-hop album is fucking hip-hop. I love hip-hop. I make hip-hop. I wanna take this genre and stretch it so far that people who may not listen to it, listen to it, and wanna listen to the new artists and whatever’s going on.”

Rosenberg got hold of those comments and called him out.
“Either leave hip hop and go make other music in another genre or start showing respect for hip hop!”
He later elaborated on his feelings on Ebro in the Morning.
