Post Malone is a strong cigarette smoker who is frequently seen with a cigarette in his mouth.
The rapper stated that he smokes between 40 and 80 cigarettes per day during his recent interview on the Full Send Podcast with NELK’s Bob Menery and Kyle Forgeard.
“On a really terrible day? There’s a very fine line between a terrible day and a good day… 40-45,” he said. “By the time I ask Ben for that second pack, I’m like, ‘Alright dude, chill out.’ But then by the time I open that third pack, I’m like, ‘I’m a total piece of shit and I need to go to sleep.”
When asked how many cigarettes he’s ever smoked in a day, he said “Probably like 80”. Malone also talked about his ideal smoking setup and whether or not smoking is harming his vocals.
“I used to smoke them in bed, but not really anymore,” he said. “Now I have like a special zone – it has like my PC in it and my Magic: The Gathering shit, so I just go down there and fucking rip cigs and build decks and die in Apex Legends. It definitely has fucked up my voice, but I mean, Johnny Cash smoked his whole life – he sounded cool, you know?”
Post Malone claimed during a 2019 concert in Dublin that the venue had warned him about a $4,000 fee for each cigarette smoked, which he cheerfully accepted.
