His father, Rich Post, worked as a disc jockey for CNY weddings with Whirlin’ Disc DJs.
”My dad was always playing music,” the award-winning singer said in an interview. ”Not like playing music, but listening to music. And he put me on everything… Folk and funk and rap.”
At age 9, Malone moved to Grapevine, Texas, with his father and stepmother, Jodie.
Post worked at a Chicken Express as a teenager.
He enrolled in Tarrant County College but dropped out.

In August 2018, Malone’s plane was forced to make an emergency landing after two tires blew out when it took off from New Jersey’s Teterboro Airport.
”I’m terrified of flying in the first place, so every time I get on a flight, I always try my best to fall asleep,” Post later confessed. ”There was a sensor malfunction upfront, so we had to turn around and land again.”
