What a turn around!

Post Malone has revealed that he was sleeping in a closet before the success of his breakout single ‘White Iverson’.

The New York rapper, who dropped his critically-acclaimed album ‘Stoney’ last year, detailed his pre-fame struggle to Capital XTRA’s Manny Norte at Wireless Festival.

“I just turned 19 when I made the song. I didn’t have any money and I was looking around for cigarette money,” he said.

“I was eating Ramen [noodles] which were $1 a pack. I was sleeping in a closet and gave my room up for a studio, so we just made the song and it happened overnight.” 

Since his debut single ‘White Iverson’, Post Malone has gone on to collaborate with Justin Bieber, 50 Cent and more.

However Post Malone revealed he is yet to reach his peak.

“I’m still not ready… I’m still preparing. I haven’t unlocked my final form yet,” he joked.

During his interview with Capital XTRA at Wireless, the Post Malone also revealed that he plans to collaborate with Fetty Wap on a new song. 

The pair, who previously worked on songs ‘Mission‘ and ‘---‘, are planning to get back in the studio and make more music.
