Post Malone recently sat down for an interview with The Dana Cortez Show, where he was asked about Lil B’s cultural appropriation comments.
“I don’t know what happened, because Lil B has always had nothing but nice things to say,” Post said. “It’s a mystery. Whether it’s if he [was] hacked, or if he’s not. But Lil B is such a positive dude, and I don’t think he would really talk smack.”
Post says he feels his white skin has been used against him in Hip Hop.
“Especially coming into the game and being so young and not really having an identity. Being a young kid, there’s so much going on around you and it’s so easy to be someone else or something and want to be something you’re not,” he said. “But coming into my own and really figuring out who I am and what kind of music I want to make and how I want to really shift the culture and shift the genre… now I think, with this last album, I’ve shut a lot of people up that just wanted to call me a cultural appropriator or a one hit wonder. It doesn’t bother me anymore that people question me. I just want to keep making the best music I can.”
