A Post About Post

By Tyler Aberle

Many know him, many love him, and believe it or not, he’s selling out shows left and right. However, we all sometimes look at the guy, especially his Instagram and fashion choices, and wonder what exactly is going on upstairs in the wonderful mind of our good ole’ pal, Austin Post (aka Post Malone). Exhibit A…

Is that a guy that cares even a little about what people think? No. Is that why he should be every person’s spirit animal? Probably. Honestly, it’s for good reason.

His first ever single White Iverson, which came out over a year before his debut album Stoney, was a breakthrough success that garnished him a record deal and is now certified 4x Platinum. After that, he released four more singles: Too Young, Go Flex, Deja Vu feat. Justin Bieber, and Congratulations feat. Quavo. Recognize any of those? Exactly. All of this got him the opportunity to tour with his now great friend, the one and only, Justin Bieber. Think what you will about either of these two, but that is a BIG deal.

Only after all of that, he dropped his first album Stoney. If you take the time to listen to the entire thing, you’ll leave thinking you know the guy. Seriously, listen to the Broken Whiskey Glass and try not to get hooked. But, nevertheless, I understand that music is to-each-their-own in taste, and not everyone has to like it. But, guess what, the album went platinum.

Numbers are tight and all, but they don’t faze the big guy behind the project. You’ll still catch him at all of his concerts, and probably anywhere, with his day one guy just doing exclusively him and no one else. He’s consistently strapped with a Bud Light, cigarette, guitar, and the biggest smile you can find. Never change Post, never change for the world.
