Post Malone pays house deposit for Glasgow singer

It’s been reported that Post Malone has used his wealth to help an aspiring Glasgow singer to pay his house deposit. The philanthropic rapper turned up for a surprise visit to hear Gregor Hunter Coleman live at Glasgow’s Wunderbar on Saturday. He had just finished his own show at the city’s Ovo Hydro.

As Coleman finished his set, Malone made a point of talking to him and told him he’d “smashed it”. Coleman told BBC Scotland: “He said, ‘Do you want a drink?’ I was like, ‘Listen, I’m saving for a house, so I’m not drinking just now. Which was daft, my mates were, like, ‘Why did you turn down a drink from Post Malone?’”

Respecting Coleman’s decision, Malone then invited him to sing at his concert’s official afterparty. “He started saying, ‘How much will you charge?’ I said, ‘Nothing, it’s Post Malone, this is the chance of a lifetime’,” Coleman continued. “He got talking to me, and he offered to help me out with my house deposit.”

Following the “bizarre” encounter, Coleman didn’t reveal an exact figure for the donation but said, “There were things going around saying he’d bought me a house. Obviously this has helped towards me now having a deposit.”

Post Malone also asked for Coleman’s number, offering to listen to any upcoming material. “There’s a pressure now that I need to get good songs done, I need to get something happening with it rather than just being, like, ‘I met Post Malone and back to the pub’,” he said. “Hopefully, he’s still interested, and he still wants to hear them, and he likes them. If not, then it’s back to the drawing board.”

Earlier this week, Malone announced his new album, Austin, arriving on July 28th. The LP will house his recent single ‘Chemical’.
