Post Malone On Hot 97

Posted by , Aug 20, 2015 at 04:52pm

Post Malone talks "White Iverson," race and his love for Tim McGraw on Hot 97.


Hot 97's Ebro has always had a hard time wrapping his head around white dudes who he thinks are appropriating black culture (rightfully so, in many cases), but sometimes, that's led him to unfairly harass artists on air. Just watch his RiFF RAFF interview from a few years back. So it was clear that Post Malone would face similar scrutiny when he made his debut appearance on the station. Luckily, a combination of his genial attitude and Peter Rosenberg's slightly different perspective ensured that this didn't quite happen. 

Malone doesn't get a chance to chime in that much during this, with most of the conversation being dominated by the hosts, but it's a good watch all the same.
