About Post Malone

Post Malone, whose real name is Austin Post, is a hip-hop artist who is only 22 years old and was born on July 4, 1995, in Syracuse New York. He garnered interest in music from his dad who was a disc jockey for a bit and introduced him to different types of music as well as from playing the popular video game Guitar Hero.

He released his first mixtape called "Young and After them Riches" at the age of 16 which he showed to people at his school and was subsequently voted most likely to become famous. Post Malone had stated that Bob Dylan, 50 Cent, and Key! are the artists that influenced him.
