🎶 Post Malone at Prudential Center

February 18 @ 8:00 pm

Born as Austin Richard Post on July 4, 1995, in Syracuse, NY, Post Malone was raised by his father who was a radio DJ at the time and introduced him to an eclectic collection of music, including country, hip-hop and rock. It wouldn’t be until Austin turned 9 that his family would move to Grapevine, Texas, for his father’s new job as the concession manager for the Dallas Cowboys. Austin would soon develop an interest in learning to play the guitar after playing the video game Guitar Hero. Once he mastered the skill, he took his chances at auditioning for the band Crown the Empire in 2010 but was rejected because of broken string mishaps during his audition. Austin went through many phases with his musical interests, moving from emo to hard rock and, finally, to hip-hop where he would use a rap name generator to come up with his stage name, Post Malone. At 16 years of age, Post Malone began experimenting with the audio editing and recording program Audacity, which would eventually lead to the production of his first mixtape, Young and After Them Riches. Post would later move to the San Fernando Valley where he met with music producers from FKi who would produce several of his tracks, including his breakout hit “White Iverson.”
