Industry plant? Culture vulture? Whatever your opinion of 20 year old Dallas native Austin Post and his brand of woozy ATL inspired hip hop, there’s no denying that this kid is going places. Signed to industry giant Republic Records after the monumental success of his first release White Iverson, Post has risen quickly to the top. A humble, unassuming, self-proclaimed introvert, Post inherited his father’s eclectic musical taste, citing Johnny Cash, Ice T, Biggie, and Tim McGraw as major influences and has even expressed an interest in becoming a country singer down the line. Perfectly positioned at the intersection of hip-hop and R&B, Post Malone says it best himself in the first line of White Iverson when he declares: “I’m the new breed”.
