About Post Malone

Austin Post (born July 4, 1995), better known by his stage name Post Malone, is an American rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer, and guitarist signed to Republic Records. Born in Syracuse, New York and raised in Grapevine, Texas, Post Malone gained fame after releasing the single “White Iverson” on his SoundCloud in February of 2015.

In an interview with Noisey, Post explains how he got his stage name:

I was looking for a name ‘cause I already have all these songs done and I couldn’t think of anything, so I put my name in a rap name generator and it said 'Post Malone.’

Post discussed releasing a debut album in March of 2016, but after various setbacks, the album never came to fruition. In its place, on May 12th, 2016, he released his first mixtape, August 26th, to critical acclaim. Then he finally dropped his debut album, Stoney, on December 9th, 2016. His follow-up, beerbongs & bentleys, was released on April 27, 2018 and became one of the biggest releases of the year, giving Post superstar status.
