Rapper Post Malone has has a pretty good year. Not only did he top Billboard’s Hot 100 with his song “rockstar,” he apparently has a bright future as a Twitch streamer.
Post Malone had some success with his single “White Iverson” in 2015, but this year his career has really taken off. He’s dropped two singles with some impressive featured rappers—Migos’s Quavo and 21 Savage respectively—and has been working on an anticipated album, Beerbongs & Bentleys. If all of that means nothing to you, just know that he’s apparently into Call of Duty, and last night around 34,000 people got on Twitch to watch him play it.
Malone’s stream consisted of something a lot of rappers love to do: get baked and play games. This is not always conducive to an organised stream. If you watch closely, at the end of this clip you’ll see him put his joint out on his controller.
The rapper titled his stream “Post Malone Sucks,” which was partially a self-deprecating joke and partially an honest assessment of his streaming acumen. At one point he forgot to plug in his mic.
Even though he had some technical difficulties, he managed a whole team wipe. Right after that he ate shit, but I’m still impressed.
Malone says he wants to stream again, and I hope he does. He’s definitely a charismatic guy who’s fun to watch. Here’s looking out for that Runescape stream, dude.
