Post Malone is an American rapper, singer and songwriter. His debut single “White Iverson” was released 3 years ago, and was responsible for his initial recognition in the industry.
Though he is only 22 years old, Post Malone’s net worth is already $8 million as of January 2018; which is impressive for only a two year career so far.
Austin Richard Post was born on the 4th July, 1995, in Syracuse, New York. However, the family moved to Grapevine, Texas, when Malone was only 9 years old. His father became the manager of concessions for the Dallas Cowboys.
Malone’s first interest in music came from playing Guitar Hero as a kid; after which he began to play guitar. He played in a metal band at one point, and also learnt the producing side of things on FL Studio.
At 16 years old, he created his first mix-tape, which he passed out to friends at school; and he was voted by his classmates as “Most Likely to Become Famous”.
Austin came up with the stage name ‘Post Malone’ when he was 15 years old. His debut single, “White Iverson”, was recorded only 2 days after he’d finished writing it, and completed in February 2015.
The song quickly received over 1 million views online, and was praised by many other artists. Malone captured the attention of record labels, and was signed to Republic Records later that year.
Although Post Malone’s career only began two years ago, he’s quickly becoming a sensation; and Rolling Stone even named him as one of the most popular musicians in the country. Some of Malone’s hits have reached hundreds of millions of views online, including the likes of ‘Rockstar’ featuring 21 Savage.
