Post Malone’s ‘White Iverson’ Wins Best Hip-Hop Song in the 2015 The BoomBox Fan Choice Awards
Malone went from a virtual unknown to one of the brightest up-and-comers in rap in the past year. The Syracuse, N.Y. native emerged in 2015 with his song, "White Iverson," which was co-produced by Malone and FKi Music. Finding inspiration for the track after having his hair braided in a style similar to basketball icon Allen Iverson's signature cornrows, Malone released the song as his debut single in February 2015.
The song quickly caught on with listeners, gaining over a million streams within a months time due to fans who helped make the single a viral sensation. Malone would sign with Republic Records and hit the interview circuit, appearing on Power 105's The Breakfast Club, as well as CBS' Rap Radar Podcast while continuing to get the people familiar with his face and music.
