Post Malone makes pop, trap, hip hop, and rock music. Although in his latest album “Hollywood’s Bleeding” he blurs all his genres together. Post Malone had an interview with Jimmy Fallon about his latest album “Hollywood’s Bleeding”, Post Malone told Jimmy “I usually go into the booth and just kind of sing over beats and wait until I find a good melody and sit down and write it so we’ve done that probably a hundred times and then just shift them through and then see which ones are smoosh hits”.

With a different interviewer Post-Malone gives his opinion about his own music, “I don’t think I make the best music ever, I think it’s just relatable and I just want to be like somebody people can listen to whenever they’re going through rough times like cuz I’ve been through rough times so I’m just right there with you”.

Post Malone believes that his father inspired him when he was younger. When Austin Post was fifteen years old his father Rich Post was a DJ, his father introduced him to different types of genres like hip hop, country, and rock. When Austin was 16 years old he made his own mixtape called “Young and After Them riches” he showed his friends at Grapevine High School and was voted ‘Most Likely to Become Famous’. At this time Austin Post was inspired by Bob Dylan who wrote folk, rock, country, gospel, vocal jazz, and traditional pop music. Post Malone describes Bob Dylan as “a genius” and “a god”. Post Malone’s high school history teacher Bryan Humphrey was interviewed by Ken Molestina, they were talking about Austin’s career.

Bryan recalls Austin always with his guitar and mentions a photo in the yearbook, Austin was with his guitar, the caption underneath quoted him, “The best part of playing music is seeing everyone come together and just listen to music and forget about all the problems and have some genuine fun. There’s nothing I would rather do than play music”.
