Here’s a theory for you: Post Malone is a musician, but in his heart, he wants to be a YouTuber.
On Tuesday, the “Rockstar” rapper, appeared on the popular YouTube channel Good Mythical Morning, where he performed the nursery rhyme “Old McDonald Had A Farm” in the style of rap trio Migos, and “The Itsy Bitsy Spider” in the style of ‘70s hip hop group the Sugarhill Gang. (How they get away with totally riffing off a Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon skit is beyond me, but I digress.)
For those unfamiliar with GMM, it’s a comedy channel hosted by YouTubers Rhett McLaughlin and Link Neal, usually featuring outlandish content, including an episode where the duo drink their own urine filtered into water. They kept it tame for Post Malone, who appeared to have a great time—but let’s be honest, the dude is no stranger to YouTube.
In 2017, Post was interviewed by the prominent YouTuber H3. Later that same year, he discussed computer gaming with the YouTuber JayTwoCentz, and in 2016, he burned his face off trying hot sauces with the YouTube food blog First We Feast. Just last month, he did an interview with famed Canadian music personality Nardwuar, who, at this point, could be considered old school YouTuber. Even if you’re not big into social media celebrity, it’s hard to miss the rapper’s goofy smile across your computer or phone screen...at least, at some point over the course of the last few months.
See what I mean? Post Malone would love being a YouTube celebrity! I wonder what a Post Malone vlog look like. Would he start making reaction videos? Would he start his own music channel? Or maybe he could follow the path of many YouTubers before him and devote his time to a single game, like Call of Duty. Who knows. Post Malone: YouTube star, doesn’t have a bad ring to it.
