  • austan 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 attempts Tony snagged the number one spot on Billboard's Top R&B and hip hop albums solidifying his title as the Prince of tracks that are both Moody and hedonistic he 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 wasn't always his forte according to GQ he knew that 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 ASAP Ferg a self-taught guitar hero host 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 from alone to grab his guitar while onstage 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 a while crashing on couches and even sleeping in a Fred's closet I always would look through couches and open up Jason's car and look inside see if there's any quarters so I can 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 oh gee 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 recreate your chart-topping success while if your post Malone you do none of the above when his track rock star reigned supreme for the latter part of 2017 he told Rolling Stone that he and longtime girlfriend ashlynn 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 a 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 films 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 in a pair of you guessed it Versace loafers let your weird flag fly posting booze cures all every artist has a ritual to get their creative juices flowing for post Malone his right includes libations lots and lots of libations in an interview with noisy 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 be better now artist is getting inebriated he told hi snow buddy that he's a shy guy and has preached a ritual of drinking or getting as he calls it is the solution so the next time you're at one of its shows just now there's apparently a 99% chance that he's wasted bunnies and Bieber's 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 beaver randomly facetimed Malone during a podcast interview and the two proceeded to gush over one another i probably be safe okay get some sleep okay 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 gonna have to buy him a new one that's what friends are for
