Post Malone



Austin Richard Post (born 4 July 1995), better known by his stage name Post Malone, is an American hip hop recording artist, singer-songwriter and record producer. He first gained major recognition in February 2015, after the release of his debut single “White Iverson”. In August 2015, Malone landed a record deal with Republic Records. On 9 December 2016, he released his debut studio album Stoney. On 19 July 2015, Malone released a music video for “White Iverson”, which has received over 240 million views since its release. After the initial hype of “White Iverson”, Post released several other popular singles through his SoundCloud, including “Too Young”, “What’s Up” “Patient”and “Tear$”, all of which experienced similar levels of popularity..

After hitting one million views within a month of releasing “White Iverson”, Post quickly garnered attention from record labels. In August 2015, he signed a recording contract with Republic Records. Since his breakthrough hit song, Malone has worked with a number of prominent rappers such as 50 Cent, Young Thug, and Kanye West, among others. Malone began his friendship with Canadian singer and songwriter Justin Bieber, which led to Malone being an opening act for Bieber’s Purpose World Tour. 20 April 2016, Malone premiered his new single, “Go Flex” on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show. 12 May 2016, he released his first full-length project, a mixtape, titled August 26th. On 9 June 2016, Malone made his national television debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, performing “Go Flex”.

In June 2016, XXL editor-in-chief Vanessa Satten revealed Post Malone was considered for XXL’s “2016 Freshmen Class” magazine cover, however 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 should never be questioned. I shouldn’t be chastised in whichever way I see fit.” He then went on to explain that his latest mixtape as well as his upcoming album are 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 26th was a reference to the scheduled release date of his debut studio album Stoney. On 27 August 2016, Post Malone issued an apology for the album being late. It was available for pre-order on 4 November, and was finally released on 9 December. Post Malone revealed the title of his next project, titled Beerbongs and Bentleys..
