Post Malone’s Biography
Malone was born in Syracuse, New York, on July 4, 1995. Richard Post, his father, and Jodie, his stepmother, raised him. Post Malone created his first mixtape when he was sixteen and he was subsequently voted the ‘Most Likely To Become Famous’ by his classmates at Grapevine High School. He worked at job at Chicken Express when he was a teenager. He then enrolled at Tarrant County College but later dropped out before he decided to move to LA with his friend, the professional gaming streamer Jason Probst.
Malone was introduced to a wide variety of musical genres by his father, a former DJ who played hip hop, country, and rock. After Malone’s father was appointed the Dallas Cowboys’ concessions manager, the family relocated to Grapevine, Texas, when Malone was nine years old. In 2010, Malone started learning how to play the guitar.
He went to an audition with the American band Crown the Empire, but was turned down when his guitar’s strings snapped. He attributed the video game Guitar Hero with sparking his initial interest in learning the guitar. Post, however, made the decision to become an MC after his father handed him a copy of the Terror Squad song “Lean Back.” Prior to moving to the West Coast and ending up in Los Angeles, he was a part of the IRAS crew in Dallas.
He came up with the name “White Iverson” after braiding his hair, and when he posted the song in early 2015, he quickly reached a million views. Later that year, Post signed with the Republic label. 2016 saw the release of his official debut mixtape, August 26th, and the single “Go Flex.” Months later, he released his debut studio project.
After his debut was a success, Post released the number-one singles “Rockstar” with 21 Savage and “Psycho” with Ty Dolla $ign, which collectively went 13 times platinum. These popular songs were included in his sophomore follow-up, Beerbongs & Bentleys, which explored his quick ascent to fame and all of its accoutrements.
In the interim between his formal full-length releases, Post took advantage of his gradual rise in the public eye by joining Swae Lee on the Spider Man: Into the Spider-Verse soundtrack. “Sunflower,” their duet, peaked at the top of the charts all over the world and signaled a modest pop-smart shift in Post’s output. Following “Wow,” “Goodbyes” with Young Thug, and “Circles,” he was solidly established in the top tier of the Hot 100 for the majority of 2019.
These four singles were all included on Hollywood’s Bleeding, his third album, which also included Da Baby, Future, Halsey, Meek Mill, Lil Baby, SZA, Travis Scott, and even Ozzy Osbourne. The set, which was his second number one album, held the top spot on the Billboard 200 for at least five weeks in a row, which was a record for any artist that year. At the end of the year, “Circles” earned his fourth Hot 100 chart-topper, but his other 2019 number one, “Sunflower,” received two Grammy nominations, including Record of the Year.
Two years later, he released Twelve Carat Toothache, his fourth studio album, which included cameo appearances from Doja Cat, the Kid Laroi, and Robin Pecknold of Fleet Foxes. The oft-dour set includes smash singles “Cooped Up” with Roddy Ricch and “One Right Now” with the Weeknd, which dealt with the demands and traps of fame and money.
Post Malone was in a long-term relationship with show promoter Ashlen Diaz from 2015 until 2018. Unfortunately, the couple ended up calling it quits in the fall of 2018. No official reason was given for the breakup, but many people speculated that Post Malone’s busy schedule might have been to blame. In 2020, it was rumored that Post Malone was dating Korean singer and visual artist MLMA, which stands for Me Love Me A lot.
While neither artist officially confirmed their relationship, MLMA seemed to let the cat out of the bag when she posted some now-deleted photos of her and the “Rockstar” singer on her Instagram feed in August of 2020. Born in Seoul, MLMA is also a successful street-wear designer, musician, and online influencer. Like Post Malone, she’s an extremely artistic individual who loves using her creativity to express herself.
Malone announced the birth of his daughter on The Howard Stern Show on June 13 on Sirius XM. Before leaving his house to go to the studio lately, the “Circles” rapper “kissed” his “baby girl,” which lead the radio host to confirm the birth of his first kid, as the rapper remembered to Howard Stern. The Grammy-nominated artist did not confirm exactly when they welcomed their first child, or the exact day he popped the question to his longtime girlfriend.
The latest Post Malone x Crocs release follows up the pair’s black and blue camouflage colorway from last year, which took things up a notch technically via an adjustable velcro strap, chunky sole, and drawcord. Sticking to a similar utilitarian path, this time using the Duet Max Clog silhouette, Post Malone kits the clog out in branded rivets, lanyard clips, and backstraps.
The unisex Post Malone x Crocs shoes arrive in both black and pink colorways, with the black edition boasting the loud pink inside the shoe. Both colorways come with the functional elements mentioned above, as well as a seriously rugged sole.
Face, Head, and Neck Tattoos
Moving down from the corner of his right eye vertically: a smiley face with “x” eyes, a Playboy bunny, and a heart. With his brother, he also got the number 7 on each side of his nose. Parallel to the small tats are a hammer and a sword. Over the right eye are blackjack cards and underneath the cards are the words “stay away.” Post also has a giant skull on the right side of his own skull. By his ear, Post has gauntlet and flail weaponry which extends down to his jaw.
Connecting both sides of his face is barbed wire, tattooed across his forehead. Also spanning both sides are the words “always tired,” inked under both eyes, split by his nose. Moving to the left side. On his left temple and extending to his ear, Post wears a Japanese design resembling waves. Below that and next to “tire,” he has a bloody buzzsaw.
Beside the buzzsaw is a skull with devil horns and covering most of the right side of his head is the head of medusa-like figure. On the left side of his head are also a giant spider and a castle on the back. Behind both ears, Post has the outlines of the two states he grew up in: New York and Texas. Moving down to the neck, Post wears two large eagles, one in black (left side) and one in white (right side). “Stony,” the name of one of his albums, is written on his chin, and a bison skull covers most of his throat.
Across his collarbone, Post wears a a sword, tattooed to look like it’s stabbing him through the neck (once again: “swords are fucking awesome”). Under his left collarbone is a Dallas Cowboys football helmet, and under the right is a pair of what looks like eyeball dice. Over his right pec is zombie Jesus.
Post also has new mural art over his left pec and extending across his stomach. Moving down to Post’s ribs, we find a skull and crossbones on the left ribcage and Master Shake from ‘Aqua Teen Hunger Force’ on his right side. On his stomach is the Cold War phrase “Kill a commie for mommy,” and spanning his whole stomach is the Greek phrase “Molon labe” (written in Greek).
Working our way down from Post’s right shoulder, we find prayer hands holding a handgun extending down his arm. On the inside of his right bicep is a melting red face with an eyeball popping out. Next to that is a Gallenson’s Gun Shop logo. Lower down on the bicep is the word “PATIENT,” the name of one of Post’s records. On his right forearm is a minuteman soldier with a knight fighting from atop a horse beneath. And near that is Post himself fighting atop a horse. On the inner forearm is another skull, this time wearing a samurai helmet. And finally, on his right elbow, is an unfinished Lord of the Rings tattoo—supposedly a Sauron character.
Post’s left arm is just as much a collage. The largest tattoos are four portraits. The first, in the prayer hands spot, is Johnny Cash. (Floating by cash is a Miraak Mask from the Elder Scrolls game.) On his bicep, Post has Bob Dylan playing the harmonica. Post wears a second portrait of Kurt Cobain by his left elbow. (There’s also a Roman centurion design there.) And finally, on his left arm is Lil Peep.
The tattoo asteroid belt opens up a bit once we get to Post’s legs—likely the next major canvas for the musician.
Post Malone has featured or made cameos in various films including Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Wrath of Man ; Spenser Confidential, amongst others.
