Post Malone is indeed a little of something like a musical embarrassment. It’s difficult seeing a tough-looking white guy with facial tattoos with unkempt hair among hip hop purists despite having to scream out misogyny. A tough-looking guy with facial tattoo performing upbeat watered-down pop-rock songs remains difficult to see that for alternative rock aficionados. And odds are, you really don’t like him for each and every pompous party in between.
Return of the Mack – Mark Morrison
During Seth Rogan’s Hilarity for Charity edition, Malone first performed the ’90s classic “Return of the Mack” by Mark Morrison. Ever since, as a continuation of the live performance in Adelaide and Melbourne, he has appeared at a minimum of two other occasions. This is a fantastic song, and it is on record as stating it is the best track ever produced.
Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right – Bob Dylan
He was only a child from Dallas, Texas that sang folk music. He is also using his real identity on stage until Post Malone produced three no. 1 single and the no. 1 album. Although some of his traditional references could be noticed throughout his latest single “Circles,” you can almost see the initial impact that the style has had on his songs as he performs “Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right” from Bob Dylan almost all of the way to the end in 2013, already under the pseudonym Austin Richard.
