Who is Post Malone?
Austin Richard Post (born July 4, 1995), known professionally as Post Malone, is an American singer, rapper, songwriter, record producer, and actor.
Known for his introspective songwriting and laconic vocal style, Post has gained acclaim for bending a range of genres including hip hop, pop, country, and rock.
He first attained recognition in 2015 following the release of his debut single “White Iverson”. He subsequently signed a recording contract with Republic Records.
His father introduced him to multiple genres of music, having been a DJ in his youth. It was in Texas that Post began to play the guitar, and was in a heavy metal band.
According to Post, he chose the stage name “Post Malone” when he was around 14 or 15, using his last name plus “Malone”, which he got from an online rap name generator.
He created his first mixtape “Young and After Them Riches” at the age of 16. After graduating, he briefly enrolled in Tarrant County College in Fort Worth, Texas, but dropped out and moved to Los Angeles with friend Jason Probst.
After his move to Los Angeles, Post Malone formed a music group with a number of other music producers and artists and began to record music with them.
The group began living together in a home in San Fernando Valley and became acquainted with 1st Down of FKi who helped to produce a number of Post’s songs including ‘White Iverson’ which is about the basketball player Allen Iverson.
The tracks that the rapper recorded with 1st from FKi were uploaded to Post’s Soundcloud account in 2015 and a music video was released a few months later. The single caught the attention of Mac Miller and Wiz Khalifa.
In 2016 he brought out a new single, ‘Go Flex’. His first full-length musical work was released in May 2016, this was a mixtape titled ‘August 26’ in reference to the release date of his debut album.
Post Malone then went on to release his album ‘Stoney’ which was late by the time of its release.
The rapper publicly stated that he felt that it was mediocre, despite the success of a number of tracks including ‘Congratulations’, ‘I Fall Apart’ and ‘Déjà vu’ which were all within the top 100. The album was certified double platinum in 2017.
Post Malone received his first Grammy Award nominations at the 61st annual ceremony, with “Rockstar” being nominated for both Record of the Year and Best Rap/Sung Performance while “Better Now” garnered a nomination in Best Pop Solo Performance.
Additionally, his studio album Beerbongs & Bentleys nabbed a nomination for Album of the Year.
“White Iverson” was praised by many, including Mac Miller and Wiz Khalifa, and hit one million views within a month of its release.
As a result, Post began attracting attention from record labels and signed a recording contract with Republic Records in August 2015.
He began working with prominent rappers such as Kanye West, whom he met after being invited to perform at Kylie Jenner’s 18th birthday party.
Together, they collaborated on the single “Fade” from Kanye’s album “The Life of Pablo.”
At the 62nd annual ceremony, his collaboration with Swae Lee, “Sunflower”, received nominations in categories such as Record of the Year and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance. Post still hasn’t won a Grammy, despite six nominations over the past two years.
