Hailing from Texas, Post Malone is one of the dirty south rappers that are taking the country by storm. From a young age, he adored music and planned on joining a band thanks to Guitar Hero. In his teenage years, however, his dad gave him a copy of Terror Squad‘s hit “Lean Back”. This record veered him away from rock and towards rapping, birthing the alias Post Malone. After he hit one million views in a month of releasing “White Iverson”, record labels went after him quickly; in 2015, Republic Records won and signed him. Since his breakthrough, Post Malone has worked with top rappers 50 Cent and Kanye West as well as many other newcomers. Post Malone also started forming a friendship with Canadian sensation Justin Bieber which led to him opening for Justin’s Purpose World Tour. Post Malone has helped bring southern rap to the forefront and still has a lot of dirt to bring!
