So, Post Malone pays a homie a thousand dollars a day
00:15
to handle his beer bongs.
00:16
Post, where do I apply?
00:19
This is not true.
00:20
Alec used to be the beer bong handler.
00:22
He did not make a thousand dollars a day,
00:24
I don't have that kind of cash.
00:26
(whistling)
00:27
What do you guys think
00:28
Post Malone is thinking about right now?
00:31
Hashtag stoner nation.
00:32
I don't even really smoke anymore.
00:35
I guess I'm really thinkin' about
00:38
Call of Duty
00:39
because all I do is really play Call of Duty nowadays.
00:42
Posted that one.
00:44
Oh, shit. (whistling)
00:46
Vibin' heavy with that hashtag Rockstar beat.
00:49
Who produced it, any on know?
00:51
It was produced by a guy named Tank God.
00:54
He's a young kid.
00:55
I met him through Diddy's son and we just kinda had a blast
00:58
and it just kinda happened naturally
01:00
and it was a lot of fun.
01:02
(whistling) Blast that.
01:03
Seriously, how did Post Malone not win Sexiest Man Alive?
01:07
That's a great question, I feel like I was snuffed on that.

Facebook.
01:14
What does Post Malone smell like?
01:16
Whoa Don't Zucc Me Dude (laughs).
01:19
I smell good, I smell like a normal person.
01:22
A lot of ladies say that they love my musk.
01:24
I won't wear any deodorant or anything,
01:26
but I have a musk and it's just kind of, like,
01:28
naturally enticing to a female.
01:30
But I don't smell bad, that's a common misconception.
01:33
And I did a poll with people around town
01:36
and the consensus is that I don't smell.

Seriously, it's Actually Me.
01:45
What rhymes with Malone?
01:48
Malone rhymes better with baritone or saxophone
01:50
than with phone or tone,
01:51
so I'm kind of like adding on to what you guys have.
01:55
Yeah, but you can rhyme words without being exact.
01:57
So, you can say Malone home.
01:59
That's what I do.
02:00
I really suck at rhyming, so I just kind of make words fit.
02:03
I bend the English language to my will.

02:11
I'm white and from the suburbs and I aspire to be a rapper.
02:14
I have no clue what to rap about though.
02:16
What should I do?
02:17
Rap about what makes you happy.
02:19
Rap about your kill-death ratio.
02:21
Rap about your dog, your car,
02:23
how your parents don't understand you.
02:26
See, what I did when I was a little kid,
02:29
I would rap about stuff that I wanted, like,
02:32
hey, I'm working my ass off
02:33
and I want this stuff in the future.
02:35
'Cause you're not being bragadocious, you're just...
02:37
But you're still cool
02:38
'cause you know what all this stuff is.
02:40
How do people come up with a rap name?
02:42
Rap name generators, or just, if you have a smart brain,
02:46
you can use that to think of names that work.
02:48
Think of something you think is cool
02:49
and then make it cool to other people.
02:52
What Myers-Briggs Type is Post Malone?
02:55
Well, I'll get back to you
02:57
because I haven't taken the test yet.
02:58
But I'd say fuckin' dope, if that's an outcome.
03:02
Do you think it's still possible
03:04
to be a successful white rapper these days?
03:07
Yeah, I do.
03:08
You know, I had to fight some shit-talking
03:10
and fight some hate at the beginning.
03:13
And there's still people that don't like me,
03:15
but I mean, I'm just trying to do what I do
03:17
and make the best music that I can
03:18
and make music that I love
03:20
and just kick ass as much as I can.

03:35
Anyone know where this was filmed?
03:37
It's somewhere outside of L.A. in the desert.
03:41
Somewhere, I don't even know.
03:43
I'm pretty sure you could replicate this.
03:45
Just drive a hour outside
03:46
and you could replicate it anywhere.
03:50
More Twitter.
03:52
You may not believe it, but it's Actually Me.
03:55
I hope everyone has a good day,
03:56
except the person that broke Post Malone's heart
03:58
in I Fall Apart; who are you?
04:00
You know, I wrote this song about...
04:03
when I was a lil' naive high school boy,
04:05
so this is about a high school shawty that we don't disclose
04:08
but she's a real McAsshole. (whistling)
04:12
Sent.
04:13
I wanna be Post Malone best friend.
04:15
How does that happen?
04:16
My beer bong holder is usually my best friend,
04:19
so we're having auditions at The Forum next week.
04:22
Be there or be square, and bring your funniest jokes.
04:26

04:27
Next.
04:28
Why is Post Malone literally my dad?
04:31
Wow, that's a very handsome dad.
04:34
Great dad.
04:35
We do look similar. (whistling)
04:37
Posted.

04:41
How did he manage to make a song with Justin Bieber
04:43
on his first album? (laughs)
04:45
Submitted by PM-ME-all-Your-Tits.
04:49
That's a great username, straight to the point
04:51
and just skip all the bullshit and get right to it.
04:54
At the studio, I was workin' on my first album
04:56
and I met him through a mutual friend
04:58
and we just kinda clicked and we made a great song
05:00
and he's a great guy and, you know, the rest was history.
05:06
My sister made this pumpkin, I thought this belonged here.
05:09
And it's a pumpkin of me and a cigarette and it looks great.
05:14
Happy Halloween, y'all, Happy Halloween.
05:18
Wikipedia.
05:21
He created his stage name,
05:22
which would later be rumored to be a reference
05:25
to the professional basketball player Karl Malone, big fan.
05:28
But Malone later explained on a interview
05:31
with The Breakfast Club that Post is his last name
05:33
and he just made Malone up.
05:34
It's not accurate and I used to say that, yeah,
05:36
because I feel like it would just be...
05:38
It's just a easier story.
05:39
When I was a little kid, I was lookin' for a nice name
05:41
like Wiz Khalifa,
05:42
I just thought it kinda rolled off the tongue.
05:44
So, I went to a rap name generator
05:46
and typed in Austin Post and it came up with Post Malone.
05:50
Post Malone was born in Syracuse, New York
05:51
when he was nine year...
05:52
Oh, I thought it said I was born when I was nine years old.
05:56
Post Malone was born in Syracuse, New York, period.
05:59
When he was nine years old,
06:00
he and his family moved to Grapevine, Texas.
06:02
He enjoyed playing basketball and watching sports.
06:05
I have a cat named Apilly Roller and I love her to death.
06:09
It's kind of random.
06:10
This is all about sports and where I'm from,
06:12
but I just wanna talk about my cat.
06:15
Can I fuckin' talk about my cat?
06:16
Submit.

06:21
I wanna ask this girl to homecoming
06:22
with Post Malone tickets.
06:24
I need some ideas, punny preferably.
06:26
I saw a couple of these homecoming things,
06:29
like I will fall apart if you don't go flex at me at prom.
06:35
I'll give you a starting place,
06:36
all you have to do is just go through my album
06:39
and just like, I guess just put song names in sentences
06:43
and just put quotation marks around it and it'll...
06:46
Heh, she'll say yes, buddy.
06:50
More Quora.
06:51
What does Post Malone mean
06:53
when he says he was Feeling Whitney?
06:55
This is a great question
06:56
and I don't feel like I get this question a lot.
06:58
This song is about whenever I was a little boy
07:01
and I had just moved out to L.A.
07:02
and I was like 18 and gettin' into trouble and everything.
07:05
And, you know, Whitney Houston and Houston is associated
07:08
with lean and so, I was saying, my homies sip like Houston,
07:13
as in the lean.
07:15
Yeah, so that's what kinda the song was about.
07:16
Just lockin' myself in a dark place and doing bad things.
07:21
What's the best lyric line
07:22
on the Stoney album Deluxe by Post Malone?
07:26
I think they're all pretty shitty,
07:28
but that's a really hard question.
07:31
I feel like I have trouble even during my shows
07:33
remembering the words to the songs.
07:36
I really think Feeling Whitney
07:37
has some of the best songwriting on there, I think.
07:39
I spent a lot of time and put a lot of effort into that song
07:42
and I think I just...
07:44
I put, you know, my whole emotion
07:46
and my whole brain into that song.
07:49
So, just check out the whole song.
07:50
You can do that on Genius, too.
07:54
Some more Reddit.
07:56
My friend is Post Malone for Halloween,
07:57
I think she nailed it.
07:59
I saw a lot of these and these are incredible.
08:01
Everybody killed it and looked great.
08:03
I wanted to take a big picture with all of the people
08:06
that dressed up like me, but I didn't get to do that.
08:11
So, I just looked at them on the internet.
08:13
Does anyone know what cigarettes Post Malone smokes?
08:16
I used to smoke Marlboro Reds
08:18
and that was a lot cooler of me,
08:20
but now I smoke girly cigarettes like Camel Crush
08:23
and that's my favorite cigarette.
08:24
I like 'em 'cause you can smoke 'em all day
08:26
and it's just like...
08:27
It doesn't hurt your throat that much,
08:28
but Marlboro Reds suck.
08:30
Not really, but they hurt.
08:33
Even more Twitter.
08:35
When you find out Post Malone enrolled and attended
08:37
Syracuse University for a couple of months.
08:39
Where is his dining hall?
08:41
Where is his dorm?
08:42
I didn't go to Syracuse, my dad went to Syracuse.
08:45
He's an alumni there.
08:46
I went to TCC, Tarrant County Community College,
08:50
in, I don't know, it's in the suburbs of Dallas.
08:54
Yeah, I dropped outta there, I wasn't very good at school,
08:57
and I moved to L.A. like a real cool punk kid.
09:01
(whistling)
09:02
Hey, Post Malone, can you make a Christmas album?
09:05
Yes. (whistling)
09:07
Submitted.
09:08
Yo, T Pain and Post Malone, y'all best friends?
09:11
'Cause you should be.
09:13
I've never met T Pain; great singer, great guy.
09:15
I would love to get to work with him in the near future.
09:19
And enter.
09:21
How the fuck is Post Malone's voice like that?
09:23
How does he do it?
09:24
I need answers.
09:25
A lotta auto tune and I have this little...
09:29
It's like a little Stevie Nicks kind of goat-ish thing
09:31
that I do with my throat.
09:34
Some people like it, some people done, but you know,
09:36
I think it makes it kinda super unique.
09:40
Thanks for watching,
09:41
this is Post Malone and this is Actually Me.
09:45
This was dope, this is changing history.
09:47
Good shit.
