Earl Sweatshirt is late on Post Malone’s "White Iverson." And he’s not down with it either. 

Sweatshirt shared some not-too-positive thoughts on Malone’s basketball themed hit, which dropped in February 2015 and has a peak of No. 14 on the Billboard 100.

"Just heard the song 'white iverson' who mans is this lol, who let this slide," he wrote on Twitter. "Lmao I'm a grown ass man, y'all have fun slappin that one."

Malone is laughing it up. The Los Angeles rapper has tweaked his Twitter profile to "Post Sweatpants" and retweeted an ironic message which pitched for a Sweatshirt-Malone collab. 

"i don't sweat shit," he wrote in a separate message.

Malone has good reason to fell cool about his hit. The Republic Records track is now platinum certified and is closing in on 100 million hits (it’s at 95 million at the time of writing). The song caught the attention of Kanye West, who liked it so much he ended up collaborating with Malone in the studio

Sweatshirt has been busy of late dropping new recordings of his own: "Wind in My Sails" and the instrumentals "bary" (which samples Kanye's "Barry Bonds") and "SKRT SKRT".
