Transcription

  • Austin Richard Post, better known as Post Malone, has invaded the music scene in the
  • most fascinating way.
  • After releasing the track "White Iverson" on his SoundCloud account in 2015, he went
  • from being relatively unknown to making a mad dash to the top of the charts.
  • Malone's freshman album attempt, Stoney, snagged the No. 1 spot on Billboard's Top R&B/Hip-Hop
  • Albums, solidifying his title as the prince of tracks that are both moody and hedonistic.
  • You might know his lyrics by heart, but how much do you really know about this musician
  • who went from sleeping in a closet to becoming besties with Justin Bieber?
  • A rockstar at heart
  • Post Malone makes a beeline for the top of the rap and hip-hop charts every time he drops
  • a new record, so you may be surprised to hear that hip-hop music wasn't always his forte.
  • According to GQ, he knew he wanted to be a musician by age 12, and at 16, he started
  • performing with various rock bands around his hometown of Grapevine, Texas.
  • In high school, his taste in music began to expand, though he continued performing with
  • different metal and indie bands.
  • That eclectic appetite shaped his unique sound.
  • He now has the luxury to mix together all of the genres he loves and the artists who've
  • inspired him, including the late country western crooner Hank Williams and rapper A$AP Ferg.
  • A self-taught Guitar Hero
  • Post Malone was a huge fan of video games growing up, including Guitar Hero – a game
  • in which players use a guitar-shaped controller to match song notes on screen.
  • After catching the guitar bug, he began scouring the web for more music tutorials.
  • He told The Fader:
  • "I taught myself how to play real guitar off YouTube videos.
  • Watching people play stuff, like a lot of AC/DC and Metallica.”
  • Practice has certainly paid off.
  • It's not uncommon for Malone to grab his guitar while on stage to serenade adoring fans.
  • He didn’t grow up in a musical family, but Post says that even though his parents wanted
  • him to pursue a higher education, they supported his move to Los Angeles to start making music.
  • He told Rolling Stone:
  • "My dad is my biggest fan, which is cool.
  • My mom doesn't get it, my mom is crazy.
  • I love you though."
  • The struggle was real
  • One of Post Malone's hometown friends, Jason Probst, gained an online following by streaming
  • himself playing the video game Minecraft, and eventually moved from Texas to Southern
  • California to rent a home with other Minecraft players.
  • Malone decided to tag along — or do some "chilling and freeloading,” in his own words.
  • Freeloading meant Malone had to rough it for awhile, crashing on couches and even sleeping
  • in a friend’s closet.
  • “I always would look through couches and open up Jason’s car and see if there were
  • any quarters or s**t so I could go buy a pack of cigarettes..”
  • Luckily for him, being so close to the entertainment industry had its perks.
  • Within a year, he had finessed his way into a free studio session to record a few tracks,
  • including "White Iverson."
  • The rest, as they say, is history.
  • Olive Garden’s OG
  • What would you do if you had the hottest song in the country?
  • Would you purchase some flashy jewelry, plan an island getaway, or just head back into
  • the studio to attempt to re-create your chart-topping success?
  • Well, if you're Post Malone, you do none of the above.
  • When his track "Rockstar" reigned supreme for the latter part of 2017, he told Rolling
  • Stone that he and longtime girlfriend Ashlen headed to Olive Garden to celebrate.
  • But don't get it twisted, Malone has since splurged on himself.
  • He reportedly possesses an extravagant loafer collection, including a pair of $1,700 gold-embroidered
  • Christian Louboutins, which he proudly described as being "super-ignorant."
  • Also, if you see a shiny, white, uber-expensive Rolls-Royce Wraith on the streets of Los Angeles,
  • it's probably Malone behind the wheel.
  • You know, just casually swaggin' on you.
  • Weird future
  • Most people brush off their high school superlatives as nothing more than a snarky, teenage popularity
  • contest, but Malone's classmates were on the money!
  • He was voted "Most Likely to Become Famous," and truer words have never been spoken.
  • Case in point: Check out this cheeky video he filmed during his younger years.
  • He also told Rolling Stone that while working at a fast food establishment called Chicken
  • Express in high school, he saved up $800 and blew it all on a pair of, you guessed it,
  • Versace loafers.
  • Let your weird flag fly, Posty.
  • Booze cures all
  • Every artist has a ritual to get their creative juices flowing.
  • For Post Malone, his rite includes libations.
  • Lots and lots of libations.
  • “I’m a lightweight.
  • I just drink too much.”
  • In an interview with Noisey, Post said:
  • "I usually get ideas for [a beat] and then get drunk, go in the booth, and do melodies
  • and mumbles and all that good stuff.”
  • The studio isn't the only place the "Better Now" artist is getting inebriated.
  • He told Highsnobiety that he's a shy guy, and his pre-show ritual of drinking, or getting
  • "funky," as he calls it, is the solution.
  • So, the next time you're at one of his shows, just know there's apparently a 99 percent
  • chance that he's wasted!
  • Bunnies and Biebers
  • After releasing "White Iverson," and "Go Flex," Post Malone was asked to join Justin Bieber's
  • Purpose World Tour in 2016.
  • The two became instant friends, which was evident when Bieber randomly FaceTimed Malone
  • during a podcast interview, and the two proceeded to gush over one another.
  • “Alright papa, be safe ok.
  • Get some sleep.
  • OK, I love you.”
  • Don't you just adore a good bromance?
  • It was reportedly Bieber who convinced Malone to get his first tattoo, an image of the iconic
  • Playboy bunny on his forearm.
  • As the ink was healing, Bieber "messed up the whole thing" during a game of basketball,
  • Malone told GQ.
  • Though Bieber supposedly said, “Sorry,” for smudging his body art, Malone joked that
  • his pal was would gonna have to buy him a new one.
  • That's what friends are for.
