Post Malone says he smokes about 45 cigarettes a day: ‘Johnny Cash smoked his whole life and he sounded cool’

Big fan of the heaters, right?

Post Malone is perhaps the most intriguing artist in any music genre.

From his super positive personality, facial tattoos, unique blend of hip-hop, rap and R&B, and love of country music, he’s the guy you would absolutely love to have a beer with. He also just seems like the nicest, humblest, most down to earth superstar on the planet.

The man appeared on the Send in full Podcast and was asked how many cigarettes he smokes a day.

And boy was his response wild:

“40, 45. When I ask Ben for the second pack, I’m like, ‘Okay, dude, relax.’

But then when I open the third pack, I’m like a total piece of shit and I need to go to sleep.”

He then admitted that the most cigarettes he’d ever smoked in a day was probably 80.

EIGHT…damn I’m smoking a five and I feel like my lungs have been cut in half.

He also admitted that he used to smoke them in bed, but now he has a play zone where he plays Apex and rips them up all night long.

When asked if he was concerned that it would mess up his voice over time, he said he was a bit concerned and that his smoking had already started to affect his voice, but added:

“Johnny Cash smoked his whole life and he sounded cool.”

What an answer.

Posts may have to smoke a few more years before he drops his country album… scrape that voice a bit.

Post Malone & Billy Strings cover Johnny Cash’s “Cocaine Blues”

Back in 2020, Post Malone kicked it too billy strings, to cook something “redneck shit” as Billy called it, AKA picking some Hank Williams and Johnny Cash songs.

And we’ve seen Post show love to everyone from Johnny Cash and Hank Williams to Randy Travis, John Michael Montgomery, Shania Twain, Colter Wall, Tyler Childers and Sturgill.

Needless to say, the guy loves good country music.

It’s no secret that the rapper/pop singer can play it, too.

He blew us all away with his epic renditions of Sturgill Simpson “You Can Have the Crown” and Brad Paisley’s “I’ll Miss Her” alongside Dwight Yoakam’s band for Matthew McConaughey’s benefit concert in Texas.

And ever since, we’ve been longing for another chance to see him perform country music live and in person…

And it happened last night at Billy Strings’ concert at The Observatory in Santa Ana, California.

With his guitar, a beer and a cigarette in hand, he took to the stage and said:

“Billy Strings is the best damn thing that ever did this… thanks for bringing me up. We’re going to do a Johnny Cash song.

Treating fans to a surprise performance of Johnny Cash’s “Cocaine Blues” and I can’t think of a more unlikely couple who just work so damn well together.

Based on the old traditional country song “Little Sadie”, “Cocaine Blues” was reworked by TJ “Red” Arnall back in 1947 from his 1979 album, Silver.

I mean damn I wish this guy would stop bugging us with these performances because a full blown country album by himself would be one for the ages.

And a while back, Billy Post showed some love with a phenomenal bluegrass cover of Post Malone’s “Circles.”

Live from the Brooklyn Bowl in Nashville and alongside phenomenal mandop picker Sierra Hull, Billy Strings hosted a virtual tour during the height of COVID in 2020.

“We had a great time during the virtual tour. Thanks to all who participated!!

Here is our version of Circles by Post Malone with a little help from our friend Sierra Hull.”

Billy and co. have given it their own bluegrass flavor and made it completely their own. And of course throwing in some killer solos on guitar, banjo and mandolin for good measure.

The guy is just stupidly talented.
