Post Malone has revealed he writes the majority of his songs while sitting on the toilet. During a recent appearance on the The Howard Stern Show, the rapper said pooping “very much” relaxes him and explained his process when it comes to writing in the bathroom.
“Shit literally comes to me because I write all my songs on the can,” he said. “I’d say about 30 percent of all my albums have been written on the shitter, and I’d say 60 percent of lyrics have been written on the shitter. Hey, Howard, what’s your average shit? I’m like hour and a half/two hours. I have a notepad. So it’s not the iPhone notes or the iTunes notes or whatever it is. I have a special notepad off to the side where I can write my shit. It’s a digital journal.”
He added, “It’s my special zone, ’cause no one wants to come talk to you while you’re taking a shit. No one, I don’t care who it is. I wouldn’t say it’s a hideaway as much as it’s an oasis.”
