about post malone
Post Malone stirs various influences into his own sonic “sauce” that’s both intoxicating and invigorating. His recipe has yielded massive success so far. One day, Post created the beat for “White Iverson” in his bedroom, laid down the vocals, and uploaded it to SoundCloud. Before he knew it, the budding star had Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller tweeting him, Complex, Noisey, The Fader, and Hypebeast singing his praises, and major labels knocking at his door. Signing to Republic in August 2015, Post immediately hit the studio to work on more music. Incorporating not only his inimitable voice but his production and instrumentation, it’s as enigmatic and enthralling as he is. It’s also just the beginning.
