Post Malone is one of the biggest names in the hip hop world, but he has never been shy about his love of other music and genres. In fact, before Post Malone became a breakout star, he was dabbling in other music on SoundCloud.
Now, the world gets to hear it all.
XXL Magazine released audio from an old SoundCloud account belonging to the “Sunflower” rapper and it features acoustic, emo tunes.
From the report:
Post Malone is one of the hottest rappers in the game right now, but before the fame, he was a struggling artist trying to get his voice heard on the internet. Interestingly, a bunch of Post Malone fans did some serious digging and uncovered the rapper’s pre-fame SoundCloud account. Going by the name Austin Richard, the “Wow” rapper was a bit more emo than rap on two unearthed songs from his SoundCloud page.
If you didn’t know the artist was Post Malone, who reached No. 1 on the Billboard Top 100 list with his “Sunflower” collaboration with Rae Sremmurd star Swae Lee, it would be virtually unrecognizable. Posty even went ahead and gave his own rendition “Silent Night.”
“I might be giant/But the gates they are too tall/And I chose to fall for it every time they give me what I want but it’s never enough,” he sings in the song “Stairs and Strangers.
The account is under the name of Austin Richard, his birth name.
The results? Not great. Let’s all be happy that Posty decided to go the hip hop route when his career took off.
