Post Malone stirs a mix of genres into his own sonic sound that’s both intoxicating and invigorating. His RIAA Platinum certified debut album, Stoney, led the genre-bending Dallas, TX artist to his first Top 10 Billboard 200 and first #1 R&B/Hip-Hop Album while being the “#1 Debut Hip-Hop Artist of 2016”. In 2018, his sophomore album, beerbongs & bentleys, debuted on the Billboard Top 200 at #1 and achieved one the year’s “biggest streaming weeks ever”. Additionally, Post charted nine songs in the Top 20 of the Hot 100, notching “the most songs in the Top 20 of the Hot 100.” Moreover, he smashed the record for most simultaneous Top 40 Hot 100 hits with 14 while also being nominated for 4 awards at the 61st Grammy Awards. In Ireland, the album entered the Irish Album Charts at #1, with one of the biggest chart debuts’ of 2018 and has since been certified double platinum.
When rapper Tyla Yaweh took a leap of faith and moved from his native Florida to Los Angeles in 2015, he did so on a dollar and a dream. Nineteen years old at the time, the musician, who had built a steady following in the southern state thanks to performances with everyone from Earl Sweatshirt and Denzel Curry to A$AP Ferg and Flatbush Zombies, packed his bags and headed west without a support system in place. Amid turbulent periods of being homeless, Yaweh quickly bootstrapped his career, making the most of free studio sessions from friends to record music and booking shows for himself. By 2018, he’d signed with managers Tes Siyoum and Bobby Greenleaf as well as London Entertainment, founded by Post Malone’s manager Dre London, setting his career on a slingshot path.
