Big fan of the heaters, eh?

Post Malone just may be the most intriguing artist in any genre of music.

From his wildly positive personality, the face tats, unique mix of hip-hop, rap, and R&B, and his love for country music, he’s the kinda guy you’d absolutely love to grab a beer with. He also just seems like the nicest, most humble, down to Earth superstar on the planet.

Posty has also been dipping his toe into country music, joining Hardy for a Joe Diffie tribute on his upcoming Hixtape: Vol 3, and he’s also teased a collab with Luke Combs from a country project that he’s been working on.

But aside from his music, he’s just an interesting dude in general.

A while back, Post made an appearance on the Full Send podcast, and was asked how many cigarettes he smokes a day.

And boy, his response was wild:

“40, 45. By the time I ask Ben for that second pack I’m like ‘Alright, dude, chill out.’

But then by the time I open that third pack I’m like a total piece of shit and I need to go to sleep.”

He then admitted that the most cigs he ever smoked in a day was probably somewhere in the neighborhood of 80 cigarettes.

EIGHTY…those lungs have to be BURNING.

He also admitted that he used to smoke them in bed, but now he has a gaming zone where he goes to play Apex and rips them all night long.

When asked if he was worried if it would mess up his voice over time, he said that he was a bit worried, and that his smoking has already started to affect his voice, but added:

“Johnny Cash smoked his whole life and he sounded cool.”

What an answer.

Just trying to gravel up that voice a bit for his country album.

Got a pretty cool Johnny Cash tattoo on the arm as well:
