In June 2016, XXL editor-in-chief Vanessa Satten revealed Post Malone was considered for XXL's "2016 Freshmen Class" magazine cover, but she was "told by his camp that he wasn't paying attention to hip hop so much. He was going in more of a rock/pop/country direction." However, Malone denied these claims, saying, "My love of music shouldn't ever be questioned. I shouldn't be chastised for expressing myself in whichever way I see fit." He then went on to explain that his latest mixtape as well as his upcoming album were both hip-hop: "I have a hip-hop album coming out in August. I made a HIP HOP mixtape promoting my HIP HOP album." The title of his debut mixtape, August 26, was a reference to the scheduled release date of his debut studio album Stoney. On August 27, 2016, Malone issued an apology for the album being late.
