Post Malone has gained recognition for blending various musical genres, for his introspective songwriting, and his laconic vocal style.[clarification needed].
Born in Syracuse, New York and raised in Grapevine, Texas, Malone began his musical career following the release of his debut single “White Iverson” in 2015. The song, which peaked at number fourteen on the Billboard Hot 100 and later certified quadruple platinum, allowed Malone to secure a recording contract with Republic Records later that year. Malone released his debut studio album, Stoney, in December 2016, which debuted at number six on the Billboard 200 and was certified triple platinum. The album contained the top-ten singles “Congratulations” and “I Fall Apart”. In August 2018, he broke Michael Jackson’s 34-year-old record for most weeks on Billboard‘s Top R&B and Hip-Hop Albums chart with Stoney reaching its 77th week compared to the 76 weeks that Thriller spent on the chart.

It also broke several streaming records and was certified double platinum.[
Early life Post Malone was born Austin Richard Post on July 4, 1995, in Syracuse, New York. His maternal grandfather, John Carlo Pavetto, was born in Pennsylvania to Italian parents. He was raised by his father, Rich Post, and his stepmother, Jodie. His father had been a disc jockey in his youth and introduced Post to many different genres of music including hip-hop, country, and rock. When Post was nine years old, he and his family moved to Grapevine, Texas, after his father became the manager of concessions for the Dallas Cowboys. Post began to play the guitar and auditioned for the band Crown the Empire in 2010, but was rejected after his guitar strings broke during the audition. He credited his initial interest in learning guitar to the popular video game Guitar Hero.
Post has always had a love for emo music, and appeared for a DJ set at Emo Nite in Los Angeles in June 2017, playing My Chemical Romance at the event. According to Post, his very first foray into professional music began when he was in a heavy metal band. Soon after, he says he transitioned to softer rock as well as hip-hop, before beginning to experiment on FL Studio. At 16, using Audacity, Post created his first mixtape, Young and After Them Riches. He showed it to some of his classmates at Grapevine High School. He was voted “Most Likely to Become Famous” by his classmates as a senior in high school. He worked at a Chicken Express as a teenager.
He enrolled in Tarrant County College but dropped out. After leaving college, Post moved to Los Angeles, California, with his longtime friend Jason Probst, a professional game streamer. According to Post, he chose “Post Malone” as his stage name when he was 14 or 15. The name was rumored to be a reference to the professional basketball player Karl Malone, but Post later explained that while “Post” is his last name, he used a “rap name generator” to get “Malone”.

I found out that I was biracial and I still wasn’t thinking anything of it, but then I started getting called the N-word…. I didn’t even know what it meant. I learned what it meant, and that’s when it started affecting me. I got in fights over it when I was little.” He was raised by his single mother, and his family, sometimes homeless, moved around when he was younger from Rossville to Fort Oglethorpe and LaFayette Georgia, finally settling in Red Bank, Tennessee. As a result, he attended many schools, among them Lakeview-Fort Oglethorpe High School in Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia where he sang in the choir with Lauren Alaina, the runner-up on season 10 of American Idol.

Brown auditioned on both American Idol and The X Factor after the success of his school friend Lauren Alaina on American Idol. He was chosen for The X Factor after an audition in 2013, but left the show when its producers wanted to include him in a boy band, after which he decided to post his cover versions of popular songs online.
