It’s been well-documented that Post has been a country fan since he was a youngin’, as his dad introduced him to the genre at a young age, while growing up in Grapevine, TX.
In fact, Post’s father, Rich Post, did an interview a couple of years back with CBS Dallas-Fort Worth, discussing what it’s like to be the father of such a huge rap star, while also taking a little trip through his hometown.
They even stop at the first place the rapper ever played live music, Napoli’s Italian Restaurant in downtown Grapevine. Jaime Gage, general manager of the restaurant, recalls Post playing there very well:
“He played a lot of southern rock and a lot of country, which you know you wouldn’t expect from him now, but he did a great job.”
Yep, that’s right.
Before his huge rap career, and the level of stardom that we all know today, Post Malone’s first gig was singing southern rock and country covers at a local Italian restaurant.
I mean how cool would that be? Enjoying some pasta, maybe a splash of red wine, and you’re being serenaded by Post Malone with a little “Sweet Home Alabama” or perhaps some George Strait.Sure beats the hell out of Olive Garden.
Making a country a record would be a full circle moment for Post, taking him right back to where it all started for him.
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again… make it happen Posty. Make it happen.
