Post Malone is the latest artist to be interviewed by Nardwuar. It took place in Toronto, Canada, where the pair talked about Post’s love for Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, and much more.
At the 11:55 mark, Post talks about his early days in his career, and specifically performing to crowds with only a few songs to his name. In 2015, Post’s buzz grew off SoundCloud hits such as “White Iverson,” “Too Young,” “Tear$,” and “What’s Up.” But according to him, his one good song (even to this day) is “White Iverson.”
Nardwuar: Have you ever done “White Iverson” twice?
Post Malone: I sure have. I used to get a lot of shit for it. [Laughs] You gotta understand I had like three songs out. I only had one good song. I still only have one good song, but I had to do it first and I had to do it last ‘cause no one knew who the hell I was.
It is funny Post says this about his own body of work. Since “White Iverson,” he’s had multiple platinum-selling singles: “Déjà vu” with Justin Bieber, “Congratulations” with Quavo, and his new single “Rockstar” featuring 21 Savage that spent four weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.
His debut album, Stoney, is certified double platinum while fans are anticipating the release of Beerbongs & Bentleys slated for sometime next year.
But you’re your own worst critic, so maybe he has a point. You can watch the full interview above.
