Post Malone’s Net Worth
Malone’s journey to stardom, fame, and insane success all started when he was a kid. He got interested in music thanks to his father who had been a disc jockey in his youth and who introduced his son to different genres of music such as hip-hop, rock, and country. Then, he got interested in playing instruments, especially the guitar. The popular video game, Guitar Hero is to be credited for his guitar love.
He went a step further by teaching himself how to play the instrument by watching DIY videos online. He also joined a heavy metal rock band in his high school, Grape Vine High School, which marked his initial foray into professional music. In 2010, Post Malone auditioned for the band, Crown the Empire but failed to make the mark because his guitar strings broke on stage. He eventually transitioned to softer rock and hip-hop and began to experiment producing on FL Studio. Malone’s music style has been described as a melting point of R&B, country, hip-hop, and grunge.
When he was 16, Malone created his first mixtape titled Young & After Them Riches which he shared with his friends in school. They loved it and it, in turn, awarded him a little local popularity. In his senior year, his classmates voted him as Most Likely to Become Famous.
Post Malone announced his presence in the music industry with the release of his debut single in February 2015. He recorded the song titled White Iverson two days after he had finished writing it. It was met with rave success and brought Post to the attention of record labels, with Republic Records ultimately signing him later that year. He released the music video in July 2015 to even greater success and followed it up with his debut studio album, Stoney in December of the following year. The album was certified double platinum by the RIAA in October 2017.
Beerbongs & Bentleys (2018), his second studio album features guest appearances from Swae Lee, 21 Savage, Ty Dolla Sign, Nicki Minaj, G-Eazy, and YG. The album’s first single, Rockstar featuring 21 Savage amassed hundreds of millions of views online and peaked at number one on Billboard Hot 100 chart where it stayed for eight consecutive weeks. Additionally, the album broke Spotify streaming records with 78.7 million streams worldwide, securing Malone’s status as one of the most popular rising hip-hop acts of the streaming era. It was also certified platinum just four days after its release on April 27, 2018.
