Austin Richard Post, also known as the music icon Post Malone has publicized a list of collaborating artiest’s for his long-awaited album release on September 6th. This superstar set his sights on some of the biggest names in the business, but the real hype is happening over Ozzy Osbourne being on the album. Posty gave fans a list of names posted to his official Instagram account. These names include Da Baby, Future, Halsey, Meek Mill, Lil Baby, Travis Scott, SZA, Swae Lee, Young Thug and none other than the infamous Ozzy Osbourne.
Post Malone made sure to grab the biggest names in the business. With an album name like Hollywood’s Bleeding, a plot twist is for sure on the horizon. Post Malone’s ever-changing musicality makes him almost as unpredictable as Ozzy. Malone is a rapper, singer, songwriter and producer from New York with his sights set on greatness. The set of names provided on Post’s Instagram indubitably signals an unquestionable takeover. Loudwire.com explained Posts background here, “Though Post Malone has made a huge impact on hip-hop and beyond in pop culture, it’s no secret the musician is a huge fan of rock music.”
Post Malone started in a metalcore band in high school. He picked up a guitar and everything fell into place. Similar to the story of King Arthur and Excalibur.
The now rapper started small and worked his way up to the big time. He has performed with the likes of Aerosmith and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. This now Hollywood local has also been known to party hard and is endorsed by Bud Light, to drink their beer.
Post Malone went from being a small-town metal core member to being a rapper bad boy known worldwide in just a matter of years. His success has given him access to some of the finest studios and artists out there today.
Post and Ozzy are a match made in guitar-smashing heaven.
Ozzy, also known as the “Godfather of Heavy Metal”, has been blessing audiences with brilliant music for almost 40 years. Along with the collaboration with Post Malone, Ozzy has been planning to release his vinyl box set, See You on the Other Side, this November.
Being the former frontman of Black Sabbath, Ozzy branched out on his own starting with Blizzard of Ozz. Currently, at the age of 70, the Prince of Darkness is still in the music scene. Unfortunately, the beginning of this year was a bust for Ozzy, who was undergoing some serious pain from an injurious fall. Sadly this caused him to cancel touring for this year. The future is defiantly looking brighter for the Metal God. From Ozzy’s Biography, it states, “By the end of the decade, Osbourne’s star was on the wane, and he continued to struggle with the substance abuse problems that had plagued him throughout his career. However, he found his way back into the spotlight in 2001 with the release of his eighth studio album, Down to Earth, which reached No. 4 in the U.S. and No. 19 in the U.K.” Just when we thought that was all Ozzy had to give, we are thoroughly proved wrong. The metal icon has lived life to the fullest and is indestructible. This will be the first time Osbourne makes an appearance on another album since he appeared on Black Label Society’s song “Stillborn” in 2003.
