To celebrate the release of Hollywood’s Bleeding, Post Malone sat down with music figure Zane Lowe for an exclusive Apple Music Beats 1 interview. Meeting at a vineyard in Provence, France, the two began their candid talk by revealing Posty’s plans to launch a rosé wine series dubbed Maison Number Nine along with a cannabis line and clothing brand.
Moving back into music, the Lowe touched on Post’s meteoric rise and the maturity he has shown as an artist and as a person citing his new business ventures and reclusive nature. “I’m making things work in a way that I don’t want to alienate fans of my music but at the same time I want to do something weird and funky,” Post said while talking about the mindset he had when creating Hollywood’s Bleeding. “I think this record, the new record is something super epic and I think it’s really cool. I think I’m really catching a groove and just giving the best I can.”
Recorded before the release of the highly anticipated album, Lowe asked Post to touch on working with Travis Scott, SZA, DaBaby and Ozzy Osborne which prompted the artist to reveal a co-writing credit from Kanye West on “Internet.”
Later in the interview, Post Malone touched on the passing of Lil Peep and Mac Miller highlighting his relationship with the two late artists. After chronicling how he came to meet Mac, Post touched on their plans for a joint album and how difficult it was to get away from the news of his passing.
Talking about Lil Peep, Post notes his dislike for the coverage of his death, more specifically the way people talked about his lifestyle. “At the same time, you don’t know what someone is going through and you don’t know how easy it is just to get caught up in something to the point where you can’t stop. It’s not your fault. You don’t need somebody to talk down to you or say, ‘Oh, you shouldn’t do drugs.’ You need somebody to be there to give you the support that you need as a friend or a family member. I’ve been there. It’s f*cking hard.”
