The Success of Post Malone
By no means did Post Malone come from the so-called “Hard Knock Life” many other famous rappers stemmed from, but he’s certainly earned his own way to the top! He’s making stacks now through his music—and he’s certainly not shy to flex it all!
His real name is Austin Richard Post, and he is not your regular rap prodigy with a past. Coming from a well-to-do background, he always took a shine to all things luxury!
Before the Fame
Born Austin Richard Post in Syracuse, New York, on July 4, 1995, Post Malone’s age is just 22. He moved to Texas when he was an eight-year-old boy.
Malone’s father, Rich Post, was the assistant director of the concessions stand for the Dallas Cowboys. He has been associated with the organization for over nine years. Needless to say, he did very well for himself and his family, and Post has his father to thank for his comfortable upbringing.
One can only imagine how lucky a boy might feel to be so close with one of the biggest names in the NFL. There were also some financial perks that definitely came from working for the company!
As a young boy, Malone became interested in music (mostly from his dad who started out as a disc jockey). Post then became inspired to learn the guitar after getting hooked on the hit video game, Guitar Hero. Today, he is one of the top hip-hop stars on the scene and it only seems like his success is continuing to skyrocket.
Post Malone’s Earnings
Post Malone’s net worth in 2018 is estimated at $8.0 million. This is pretty impressive, considering that he began his career not more than just three years ago!
The rapper has not only been earning wealth through his songs, but he has also cashed in through some big endorsements!
Post Malone’s Songs and Albums
Malone has made it on Forbes’ Hip-Hop’s Future Moguls: The Class of 2018 list. And people seem to agree!
The rapper is a self-made artist and has gone from being rejected by a band to becoming one of the best in the current rap scene. He achieved this all in just a few years time.
His debut album, Stoney, received a double platinum certification by the RIAA. And his song, “White Iverson,” has received quadruple platinum (sold over four million copies) and peaked at No. 5 on the R&B/Hip-Hop chart in the U.S.
We’re sure he’s earned millions through his album sales and online distribution. With the average price of $12.00 per album, it looks like Post Malone has easily earned a cool $20.0 million plus through the overall sales of Stoney alone.
Malone is currently signed to Republic Records. He has been with them since the beginning of his career as a hip-hop artist in 2015.
Although it is unclear as to how much he cost the record label, Post Malone said that they gave him “a lot of money!”
Even the rap star’s signing bonus has been kept under wraps. But looking at the trend, it’s safe to say that he could have received $2.0 to $5.0 million as signing amount.
The song, “White Iverson,” was released independently before Republic Records could get a hold of the artist. It was then re-released through the label and garnered over 20 million streams on Spotify and a staggering 40 million on SoundCloud.
On YouTube, the song has received a mind-blowing 556 million plus views! Millions of dollars just keep pouring in! More like close to $1.5 million!
Malone was always a luxury-lover. He would reportedly wear $1,000 Versace shoes to school and would spend his money on everything designer and international.
His latest single, “Psycho,” featuring rapper Ty Dolla Sign, has peaked at No. 2 on the hip-hop chart. It has gone platinum since its release on February 23, 2018.
It’s Popular If Post Malone Endorses It!
Post Malone favorite beverage is Budweiser’s Bud Light, and the endorsement couldn’t have come sooner to the rap star.
Malone and Bud Light signed a deal back when he was the “White Iverson” fame, and the company even brought him onboard their infamous Dive Bar Tour.
They love him so much that he even has a Bud Light refrigerator in his home! Is it possible he gets free stock for it, too?
By 2016, Post Malone had become a legit artist. And Forbes reported that he grossed over $1.0 million in revenue through his tour that year.
In social media endorsements, the rapper seems to promote clothing and accessories brand Zumiez on Instagram.
He was also seen doing an interview with luxury wine brand Luc Belaire while holding a glass of their best drink! Liquor brands just love him!

Malone seems to be wearing their signature gold chains in three different sizes. A look at their combined price amounts to $15,000 to $20,000.
Additionally, he showed off a tiny solid gold shoe pendant, as well as a yellow gold and diamond bracelet. It looks a lot like the Cuban link bracelet the company makes, costing north of $20,000.
Post Malone’s Cars
Post Malone’s love for everything custom-made has trickled down to his set of wheels as well! He has invested his millions in some very cool rides, which are made cooler by the luxe additions made to them.
His collection includes a Lincoln Continental, which West Coast Customs turned into an angel of the car world! It is now a white and gold beauty with gold rims, including gold accents across the body and a striking gold grill in the front.
He also bought a 1992 Ford Explorer. And while that seems like a regular buy, he added the Malone touch to it!
The Explorer now has Lamborghini style doors, 26-inch wheels with spinning rims, and new body paint. Its value went up from an approximate $1,700 to a whopping $73,000 plus.
The SUVs front grill has his name spelled out right under the Ford logo. What a way to own a ride!

The super luxury car costs between $550,000 and $650,000.
Post Malone’s Mansions
In the same video, Jake Paul seems to have also revealed the rapper’s address. Even though Post Malone took it in the right spirit, it looked like his privacy was invaded!

He seems to live in Tarzana, Los Angeles, which was showcased in the Jake Paul video and some of Noisey’s YouTube videos.
The rapper also has a home in Utah, which cost him a cool $3.0 million. He said that he redid the place by putting an apocalypse shelter underground!
