Post Malone, 23, is an American rapper, singer, guitarist, songwriter and record producer. He was born Austin Richard Post on 4 July 1955 in Syracuse New York.
His debut and the hugely successful single was “White Iverson”, which was released in 2015. It quickly gained attention on various social media platforms. The song is said to be responsible for Malone’s initial name recognition in the music industry.
To date, he has enjoyed a very successful career. Post Malone net worth in 2019 is estimated to be $14 million, which is highly impressive for only being on the music scene for a short time.
When Malone was nine, his father moved the family to Grapevine, Texas for a job with The Dallas Cowboys. His father worked as the team’s concessions manager. Post credits his interest in learning to play the guitar and wanting to have a career in music on the game Guitar Hero.
Originally, Malone was into heavy metal music but eventually became interested in hip-hop. When he was just 16 years old, he created his own mixtape. Interestingly, his schoolmates and friends voted him “Most Likely to Become Famous’’ after hearing the music.
After high school, Post briefly attended Tarrant County College in Fort Worth, Texas. After a short time, he dropped out and moved to Los Angeles.
Austin knew he had to have an interesting name so he used a rap generator that produced the name ‘‘Post Malone.” Although his career began just a few years ago, he has quickly become a sensation in the music industry.
Many of his hit songs have reached hundreds of millions of views online, which include “Rockstar” featuring 21 Savage and “Psycho” featuring Ty Dolla Sign. Malone has collaborated on several tracks with artists such as Nicki Minaj, Drake, Kanye West, and Justin Bieber.

Post signed with Republic Records in that same year. The song was also certified quadruple platinum by the RIAA in 2015.
