Austin Richard Post (born July 4, 1995), known professionally as Post Malone, is an American rapper, singer, and songwriter. Known for his variegated vocal styles, Malone has gained acclaim for blending genres and subgenres of hip hop, pop, R&B, and trap. His stage name was derived from inputting his birth name into a rap name generator.
Post Malone currently resides in Los Angeles. He also owns a $3 million home in northern Utah.
Malone has dated the popular rapper Ashlen Diaz in the past. The couple met each other after Malone booked Diaz for a show.
There are conflicting reports on how he got the stage name ‘Post Malone’. It was chosen when he was a teenager and some fans suggest that he chose the name as a homage to the basketball player Karl Malone but the rapper has come out himself to suggest that the name is his last name and a name that he got from a ‘rap name generator.
After his move to Los Angeles, Post Malone formed a music group with several other music producers and artists and began to record music with them. The group began living together in a home in San Fernando Valley and became acquainted with 1st Down of FKi who helped to produce several Post’s songs including ‘White Iverson’ which is about the basketball player Allen Iverson. The tracks that the rapper recorded with 1st from FKi were uploaded to Post’s Soundcloud account in 2015 and a music video was released a few months later. The single caught the attention of Mac Miller and Wiz Khalifa.
