Texas rapper and ‘White Iverson’ hitmaker Post Malone recently made an appearance on the Howard Stern Show to discuss his new album and open up about his career and personal growth since he first emerged on the scene in 2014.
The emcee has been a bit quiet recently and, as his counterparts, including Lil Uzi Vert and Kodak Black, receive flack from fans concerning their music, the ‘Rockstar’ artist has been observing the current landscape of hip-hop and in the studio creating the best art he can.
Austin, his most recent project, which dropped in July received mixed reviews but was a welcome gift to fans who had been eagerly awaiting the album. The 18-track body of work debuted at number two on the Billboard 200 and UK album charts but didn’t boast any chart-topping singles.
Despite this, Malone managed to sell out a North American tour that he concluded in August. The musician (real name Austin post) also made his debut appearance on NPR’s Tiny Desk concert series, where he performed several acoustic songs.
Post has been embracing his country background recently and unveiled that he will be performing at the 2024 Stagecoach Country Music Festival, an event that has previously hosted the likes of Taylor Swift and Tim McGraw.
During his recent appearance on the Howard Stern Show, Post Malone spoke on a range of topics, from his face tattoos to his love for hot sauce. However, it was all finalised with a cover of ‘Them Bones’, a track by grunge band Alice In Chains.
Introducing it, Post said, “Hey, Howard, hopefully, I don’t fuck these lyrics up!” Post began his take on the song, playing guitarist Jerry Cantrell’s signature melody on his own guitar and, to great success, covered the track live on the show.
