Post Malone may have hit the mainstream with his debut album Stoney, but the hip-hop/R&B star got his start in metalcore/post-hardcore. It’s no secret the man likes to rock out, and regardless of how you feel about the man or his music, it’s refreshing to see someone in the hip-hop world not forgetting his roots. Nobody needs hundreds of words revisiting Post’s love of metal and hardcore, so we’ll cut to the chase. We love seeing him performing Rage Against The Machine’s classic cut, “Killing In The Name”. The crowd’s reaction is absolutely priceless, and worth the price of admission as well. (Editor’s note: a previous version of this story implied that this live cover just happened, when the video has actually existed for many months now.)
