Post Malone Sits Down for Interview With Zane Lowe
On Wednesday (July 26), Post Malone chopped it up with Apple Music's Zane Lowe for an hour-long interview where the "Sunflower" rapper discussed aliens, fatherhood and his new album Austin. Posty also talked about his use of psychedelics and the toll it has taken on him, as well as the benefits.
"Yeah, I take shrooms," Post Malone admitted at the 21 minute-mark of the interview below. "I like shrooms. I like shrooms. Not as much as I used to. It’s really affected my short-term memory...Maybe it was just a stint of habitual overuse, like, daily. But now I take a little bar of chocolate with my buddies, a little square chocolate and just laugh and laugh and laugh."
He continued: "I was talking to a [Army] Ranger buddy of mine. He was a Ranger and he was saying they’re giving it to guys for PTSD and stuff. And I was like, oh that’s cool because a lot of the times, a lot of pharmaceuticals, they have negative reactions often.
"And it’s cool to see that they’re giving them this medicine and it’s actually working. He was saying his buddy was going through it and it really helped him a lot. I don’t know. It’s interesting because it has improved my view on things.
"Making the last record, I was so, so, so… Well, writing it, I was so, so sad," Post Malone added. "But now I’m so happy and it’s definitely improved my viewpoint on life."
