He emerges from Rolls Royce crashes unscathed and touches cursed objects on episodes of Ghost Adventures. There are plenty of valid reasons to bemoan his dominance. He is kind of a sentient keg stand; he has a pretty lazy and unexamined relationship with hip-hop; there is strong evidence that he might not exactly be the sort of person who thinks through his actions. But if you can wriggle free from all that for just a moment, there is a lot to appreciate in his music. There could be, and have been, far worse pop hegemonies, and in a few years, when his cherubic-face-tatted mug has receded somewhat, the virtues of his music will become more apparent. Each one sounds like it could furnish a down payment on a personal helipad. We get it.
Hollywood's Bleeding is the third studio album by American rapper Post Malone. It was released on September 6, , by Republic Records. Hollywood's Bleeding received generally positive reviews and debuted atop the US Billboard
This Sept. Though it is hard to say if this is his best album since Beerbongs and Bentleys , his last album, was nearly the same level of captivating. Post Malone definitely did not disappoint with this release.
During a year in which Post Malone has consistently dominated the pop landscape without putting out an album, Hollywood is a coronation, the inevitable run into the new year in which Post swallows the culture whole, blocking out the sun with his chart real estate and unrelenting radio play. One look at this song title gives you everything worth knowing. Post Malone is at his weakest when he feeds into the tropes most blandly associated with him. The beat never really coheres because it shifts and veers between tempos at a seemingly random rate. Post is stuck somewhere in the middle, and it never really works. He may be right, but his lack of empathy at times can be alarming.
