Post Malone ate ground at a recent show
Maybe Post Malone fans aren’t as lit as the average hip-hop crowd, or maybe they still remember that time he got called out for saying the n-word. Either way, the “White Iverson” rapper found that his eager fans near the stage at a recent concert in St. Louis were only ride or die under certain conditions. And that did not include the big-bodied rapper dropping onto their heads.
Post was playing his new single “Rockstar” and felt like trying out that time-honored tradition of rockers everywhere: the stage dive. However, the crowd didn’t get the memo and let him fall straight to the venue floor.
For his part, Post took it in stride. He continued to rap the song seated on the venue floor. He’s still riding high on the fact that he charted higher than Taylor Swift this week, so he can take a few lumps. Malone seemed to be in good spirits when he tweeted about the mishap later in the evening.
“Felt like jack black in school of rock tonight when i staged dived and nobody caught my fat ass. Wish i had lil uzi body,” he wrote.
Fans captured Post’s fall from several angles and quickly posted them to social media. One fan even shared a shot of Post, tummy out, laying on the floor of the venue as the fans realize what happened and begin to swarm. According to the poster, one girl made out with him as he laid on the floor, so things weren’t all bad for the “Congratulations” rapper.
Malone’s recent success comes over a year after rumors swirled that the rapper was leaving hip-hop for good to pursue a career in country music. After the word got around, Malone posted a lengthy Instagram note that called out XXL and other publications for publishing information he said was false.
“Everyone has the right to do whatever they f*cking want to do. I want to continue making hip-hop. I want to continue writing songs on my guitar. I want to continue working with talented artists across any genre and continue doing the sh*t that I love. I am in this for the pure purpose of creating what I want, because it’s who I am. No ulterior motives…. From the horse’s mouth. No he said/she said. If you don’t like me, politely f*ck off. I love my fans who rock with me for the godd*mn art of art.”
XXL responded that they were going on what they thought was credible information and are forced to report the things that they are told by Post Malone’s PR team, assuming that it’s the truth from the artist.
“Your publicity team told us that you were moving away from hip-hop and didn’t want to be boxed in as a hip-hop artist because you were working on other genres of music,” they wrote. “We found that hard to believe so we tracked down your manager for days.”
