For those who don't know, Post Malone, real name Austin Richard Post, is an American rapper and producer. If you saw him you would probably think he is over 30 years old.\nBut the internet has been shocked recently as people realized that Post is only 22 years old.\n@postmaloneembedded via\nThe rapper was born on July 4, 1995, meaning he will only be turning 23 next month. This is contrary to popular belief as many had pegged the rapper at being much older.\nWhile it's not clear why Post's age came to light recently, people are honestly shocked by this information. In fact some are in a complete state of utter disbelief.\nI would sooner believe a UFO than Post Malone being only 23 years old\n— Blair Socci (@blairsocci) 12 June 2018\nOn Twitter many are saying that he looks like he is at least 30 years old and looks way too old to only be in his twenties.\nMany are blaming the cigarettes and other drugs that Post allegedly does for aging him up this drastically. Scientifically drug abuse is known to cause users to look older, with dehydration causing wrinkles.\npic.twitter.com/Hrbeu6QCHG\n— ηєωт (@newtnewtriot) 12 June 2018\nPost's age just adds to a list of controversies surrounding the rapper, who has been accused of buying his way into the music industry and also appropriating black culture.
