a little over a year ago my best friend alec showed me a song called "white iverson" by an artist named post malone, who happened to be a friend of his. a group back home in la being involved with an artist's process allowed me, from a distance, to see the evolvement a musical movement. the song was catchy and because it meant something to my friends, naturally it meant more than just a good song to me. i remember hearing the song for the first time out at clubs and immediately sending snapchat's to my friends sending the little "you made it" messages to let them know that i'm watching and that i'm genuinely proud of them.
music feels a bit contaminated right now, but when you find a wavelength that's new and something you want to come back to, it's refreshing. post malone's music can be played in your home or your club, wherever you are you're going to feel the chill vibes that come with his sound.
a year later i had the luxury of spending the night at barclay's center in brooklyn with post and his team as they tour with justin bieber. from the humble vibes back stage to the actual show, i stood on the bleachers in my own world looking around at a full stadium of people in the age-range of 12-25+, jayden smith and his gorgeous girlfriend hugging to the music behind me amongst other names, simply brought together by SOUND. although i don't know post on a personal level, it was still touching to see the hard work of people i know pay off in such a beautiful way and realize that one day he will be filling up stadiums with someone opening for him.
go flex, gold teeth n on your neck, boy. stay humble. stay blessed.
ps, the after party was litlitlit.
