Post Malone

22-year-old singer/songwriter Post Malone refuses to be pigeonholed as a rapper.

Malone is among a new generation of white rappers who have been selected to steer today's youth away from thug rap music.

“It should just be music, you know?” The heavily tatted Malone tells GQ magazine in an article titled "Don't Call Post Malone a Rapper".

The problem liberals have with black rappers is they refuse to be assimilated into the progressive way of thinking. Black rappers are notoriously anti-gay, and that's not acceptable in this post-Obama era.

Last week, popular Migos rapper Offset (pictured) was widely criticized for his homophobic "I can't vibe with queers" lyric on fellow Atlanta rapper YFN Lucci's "Boss Life" track.

And Los Angeles rapper Nipsey Hussle was forced to defend himself after disparaging gay men in an Instagram post about negative imagery of heterosexual black males in the media.

White rappers like Post Malone, Tekashi69 and Lil Pump ("Gucci Gang") relate to a younger, more gender neutral crowd.

It's no surprise that some of the white rappers are either gay or bisexual.

Before he died of a drug overdose on Nov. 15, rapper Lil Peep came out on social media, tweeting, "yes I'm bi sexual." His lover was rumored to be black rapper Makonnen.

And word is that rainbow-haired rapper Tekashi69 (pictured below) is bisexual.

Post Malone (pictured below) says his music is intended to transcend rap completely.

“Because I’ve met so many people that’ll say, ‘I listen to everything except for this, or this,’ you know? And I think that’s stupid. If you like it you should listen to it.”

The GQ writer, who is black, pressed Malone to explain some of the things he's said in the past about distancing himself from rap music, etc.

"Do you, Post Malone, ever feel anxious about working in a primarily black-identified genre of music?"

Yes, he says, he does feel anxious about appropriating black culture, “I definitely feel like there’s a struggle being a white rapper. But I don’t want to be a rapper. I just want to be a person that makes music."

Post Malone, Tekashi and Lil Pump are not household names yet, but their numbers are increasing as hard-nosed, homophobic black rappers are slowly being phased out.

It won't be long before white rappers dominate hip-hop the way black athletes dominate sports in America.

    You don't sing so your a rapper you damn one hit wonder.... YOUR A RAPPER.. Terrible one at that..

  • Scromes1212

    It's been gay rappers since the beginning of rap. And they dressed just like the new kids dress now. Look at Afrika Bambaataa. He was gay and a sexual predator smh and he helped start hip hop. Look at how Flash and the furious 5 used to dress. It's no different than now. Post just need to make music and be happy he created a fan base, cause if he was black I don't know if would have this level of success.

  • Hmmm~?

    I feel like there is way too much emphasis placed on sexuality in the black community. Am I supposed to care that these niggas are gay? ? I don’t know any of these cretins, and I most assuredly would not give a rats ass if they was on video gargling dick. Different booty strokes for different folks.

  • Ryan

    So basically nobodies can just say random dumb race-related ish and get a little attention here and there. Never heard of this ICP look alike and after this random post never will again.

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    The worst part about rappers nowadays, is that even the kids of this generation don't like them. I know because I teach kids and they all complain about them. Black, white, asian, mexican, they all talk about how they like the music from the nineties, 2000 and such instead of what's out now. They all agree that the music all sounds alike. That's pretty bad that your own generation don't find you interesting.

  • ?Royalty?

    Rap has been dead. It's not coming back. ?

  • You Could Never


  • Whiplash(lacejagger)

    Love the song he has with 21 Savage. Serious question though... is that a lace front wig, in the above pic?

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil


  • Vonn

    Nah, CAC. music has different genres for a reason, pic one, or create a new one. Is you is, or is you ain't a rapper.

  • TheOwley

    It's all auto tuned now. Pass.

  • Vonn

    “I definitely feel like there’s a struggle being a white rapper. But I don’t want to be a rapper. I just want to be a person that makes music.” All musical artists are people that make music. Don't rap if you don't want to be a rapper.

  • Rayne

    That kinda rap is pure trash.

  • Rayne

    I’ve never seen a rapper with a colorful wrap on his head.

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    That write up is pretty bad. Anywho..... I like Post Malone. I'll leave this post with that. The end.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Cry me a river.

    It hard being a black PERSON.

  • Applebum

    Nothing but drugged-out demonic beings, look at them.

  • klwbaby

    Most of these rappers only talk about popping pills. I can stomach a few of them but the rest sound the same.

  • Kayke

    White rappers will never dominate hip hop because they aren't hip hop. Basically what Post is saying. Give them whatever this music is they're doing.....let em have their "Punk Hip Hop". Only yt people are listening.

  • Scromes1212

    All lies smh this generation love these dudes. His song been number one for weeks.

  • Goodbye rap

    Well I’ve been wanting to grow out of rap music. Sometimes I feel bad listening to it because of the lyrical content. This looks like my cue.

    How about the kids I teach don't like them. Does that make you feel better? I know what I'm talking about. Don't scream all lies when you don't know me or the kids I talk to on daily basis.

  • justlooking

  • Tee Bullock

    Demonic, signs and symbols. What people do for money is beyond SAD.

  • Scromes1212

    Numbers don't lie.

  • Nita

    His tongue is also doing too's white af and nasty looking. It need to be scraped thoroughly

  • Meme

    Yes exactly what I thought satanic demonic signs. All these blurred lines between man and woman all these gender fluid gender neutrality is just there for the devil to confuse the young. Get their souls whilst their young and what better way than through music to the masses!

  • Coy little wink

    Is that barbed wire tatted on his forehead? Smh...he kinda looks like Ron Jeremy...

    I do like his song rockstar...the beat is hypnotic

  • datjerk

    Post Malone physically looks like a dumpster fire...however... his music is straight.

  • chaisun

    Whitewashing, stealing and appropriating while claiming your newest creation isn't working as fast as you liked, eh? Don't worry white rappers will soon have "started" hip hop just like every other genre of music. Be patient.

  • Louisville Is4TheBirds

    Tekashi 69 says n99a an awful lot to be white

  • MistaO

    That gay agenda is strong. Just think if Black people (40 years ago) had one promoting Black intact families and a visceral rejection of feminism?

    Where would we be now??!!

  • Libra80sBaby

    Ummmm..... Who is this? ?

  • the guest

    He's not white. He's Mexican and Puerto Rican. Not race related but he's also an affiliated gang member.

  • the guest

    Post Malone is ironic because his songs are gangsta rap. He's in denial about being a rapper because that is what he is.

  • Wayup!

    First of all... Out of the multitude of questions that I have... Burning question for me is
    Why are they trying to put a demonic face on rappers? And why are they perpetuating this Illuminati culture?
    And who in their right mind is looking forward to his album? I mean seriously? ?

  • Dowoop

    I will not scroll back up to look for that shit you just mentioned.

  • Dowoop

    He looks dirty, oily, sweaty and musty in that picture too. Not to mention he looks as a motherf**ker, cant believe hes only 22.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    The idea that all new black rappers are thugs is extremely misleading. Also, he’s definitely appropriating. He used rap music to break into the industry, he actually wants to sing country, which is fine! But he’s a sucka LOL.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Damn ?????


    He is dominating the airwaves. I hear his songs constantly did not even know what he looked like..... Oh wells this is the direction they were taking that genre anyway all those Europop features and they kept bleaching bleaching everything about hip hop. Absolutely no authenticity the music industry has everyone sounds the same. Look at the what they do to the females in entertainment for the past 20years.

  • the guest

    He wants to be a mainstream artist. But I thought rap was mainstream these days?

  • Diva_woman

    Kids will say anything. These kids are listening to and loving the radio music. All I hear is gucci gang and bloody shoes lol.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    It definitely is!

  • NY_Chick

    I'm confused, is that a barbed wire fence around Post Malone forehead?

  • Simone

    Didn't read the post and don't want to. The topic alone smh...I don't feel sorry for him. Black folks go through the struggle everyday.

  • Look@m3

    Was thinking the same thing...welcome aboard..

  • Look@m3

    He scares me....guess Ill continue to keep my radio off!

  • Neva RuthLess

    Stop blaming feminism. Black women have always stood by black men. Black men refuse or can't build lead, protect, or provide. Men build, so why haven't black men built one prosperous black nation? Stop blaming black women for black male failure.

  • hotntot95

    Baphomet, Illuminati...SMH, Satan has this industry on lock...?

    Selling their souls for temporary riches that might last a few decades at the most. Sad.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Post Malone is definitely the type of person the record industry wants -- white entertainers who can rap.

  • hottlanta

    Notice he didn't say being a white man is hard.

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    Hip Hop has been dead (sadly). When the youth stopped wanting lyricists (KRS-One, Common, etc) and storytellers (Slick Rick, Tupac, etc) and started accepting and promoting the Soldier Boy, Lil whoevers and Mumble-Rap (that is a real thing, smh) hip hop died... Such a sad loss.

    Remember when a real hip hop song came on an EVERYONE started with the head nod? Not anymore

  • Anunnaki

    Who, just POST nomore,

  • hottlanta

    I wonder do white women clutch their purses and lock their car doors when they see him coming.

  • MythCalledLove

    No color, no gender, no religion. We are just people everything is fine. You are whatever you want to be. I give up I'm too damn old. Before the internet everything could be contained. Now there are no secrets, no all mighty powerhouse groups. Hollywood, media, sports, churches, companies hv all been taken down. The untouchable are just the name of a movie. We hv been bullied into accepting the no gender movement. The color barrier is not so easy but it will topple soon. No race, no color, no gender, no religion. As far as dude up top he looks like he bleached his skin. But it's hard to tell with all that $h!t on his face.

  • hottlanta

    You betta say it. I miss M.C. Hammer, Houdini, Fat Boys, etc, etc, When we crossed over, we crossed out and lost a lot of talent.

  • MythCalledLove

    You see how there is no reference to Hip-hop. If they use the rapper they hv separated and no-one can debate.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Right? I'd cross the street if I was that abomination coming towards me...

  • Kanyade

    first and only time i heard of this dude

  • WutizstillHERE!

    Here is what. There are TONNNNSS of white kids who listen to rap. When I bought my house last year, I decided to do Uber/Lyft to furnish my house..I would go to Athens and you know UGA is mostly YT. Not ONE got in my car requesting anything but rap. I have an aux cord or blue tooth and let them play what ever..all I heard alllllllll night was rap. So what do an industry do? Way minnnit these black rappers are making way to much money off our kids so lets market their music with our Elvis Presley, The Beatles rap..

  • cherrypie

    Last summer, I used to Uber here in my city and out of all of my riders which were 98% white, they all requested to listen to rap on Pandora or use my aux cord so they could listen to their music on their phone. All rap. Shoot, they were LIT lol dancing all in my car. Shoot, getting it better than I can lol

  • brownisback

    6ix9ine looks like he already knows what's in store for him

  • Courtney Wheeler

    i absolutely love this show.

  • WutizstillHERE!

    Exactly. The young white kids are more prominent into rap than thought. They help the rappers sellout arenas trust..

  • cherrypie


  • Trace da Ace and me both!! Why does he look so greasy and sweaty???

  • BlahBlahBlah

    Ok im guessing this is white trash?

  • BlahBlahBlah

    We always give away our crafts n shyt. Now have these fools do this to Mariachi music, and you will find heads in da streets in el salvador and mehico

  • Nina Ross

    Why are they allowed to call themselves rappers? Who gave them permission???

  • HoneyyGoodMoneyy_

    nope. just trash.


    Music industry controlled by liberals pushing agenda through music and film.
    They are socializing you babies ? to the point that the foolery will be normal to them. Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Mikey Cyrus and NIcki Minaj influenced a whole generation of young girls to thinks it’s cool to be bisexual or lesbian. Now is just time for the music industry to start with the boys.

  • lahla s

    The goal was to promote rap music that caused division among black people and paint black people in abad light. Record companies pushed those songs. Look how much play the hoes and bytches songs got versus the songs by Common or Public Enemy or Mos Def. Goal accomplished now its time to pull the rug from under there feet.


    Yes and Its a difference between standing by and enabling... Feminism is not for black women and does not include black women some of the new age people on television insert themselves in the Feminism movement but it is a movement 100% about white gender rolescand the white male/ female power struggle.

  • Enoughsaid2020

    These new rappers look like they worship the devil, and I will pass. There are a lot of Hip Hop artist, that rap about real things. However, the industry is controlled by white men, so they are only about the money. I don't lose any sleep, because I will always support the real hip hop icons, not these cornballs. SMH!

  • Ms.Devereaux

    Even with all their privilege white ppl wanna struggle so bad! They make up struggles that aren’t there

  • GIJoeJones

    I imagine that one day I will sit my grandchild upon my knee and tell him about a time when the only rappers on TV were black. He'll probably say "There's goes Grandad with those tall tales again."

  • Nita


  • cocaína.maui.wowie

    Every song I’ve heard by him , he’s singing .... when did he become a rapper ?
