Our favorite celebrities touch our hearts with their performances and public appearances. But if we are lucky, we might cross paths with them and they can even change our lives. This is what happened to a man who met Post Malone at a bar this month. Gregor Hunter Coleman was performing his music at Glasgow’s Wunderbar when the rapper spotted him.
After his performance, Malone—who is on his "Twelve Carat" tour—met Coleman and let him know that he "smashed" it, reported BBC. Recounting what his conversation with the American rapper, Coleman shared: “He said, ‘Do you want a drink?’ I was like, 'Listen, I’m saving for a house, so I’m not drinking just now.'"
"Which was daft, my mates were, like, ‘Why did you turn down a drink from Post Malone?’” he added. But the rapper did not push any further. Instead, he invited Coleman to perform a set at his concert's official after-party. "He started saying, how much will you charge? I said 'Nothing, it's Post Malone, this is the chance of a lifetime,'" Coleman said. And then came another offer of a lifetime for Coleman.
Malone offered to pay for his house deposit. Coleman was surprised by this offer and could not process it for some time. After his after-party set, Malone even took Coleman's number and promised to listen to some of his music. "Hopefully he's still interested and he still wants to hear them and he likes them. If not then it's back to the drawing board," Coleman added.
He shared a snap from the unforgettable encounter online, writing: "Never thought whilst heading out the door with my guitar on Friday night for my gig at @wunderbarglasgow that I’d meet @postmalone and have such a life changing experience. The hours spent with this gent chatting and jamming was life-changing in itself, not to mention what followed. This could be my time to hit the ground running."
It is a beautiful show of support by Malone to talented artists. But this is not the first time the rapper has done this. In 2020, he gave away USD 50,000 to the crowd at a Miami club. On the same weekend as the Super Bowl, the rapper entered the 11Miami, the city's 24-hour superclub, and blew the customer's mind as he carried boxes of cash through the crowd and handed out notes to people. As per reports, the boxes had single dollar bills.
Many people took to social media to thank the singer. Later, Post Malone shared their stories on his Instagram story. One person wrote, "Post Malone really took out $50K in singles [a]n[d] threw it in the club last night." Another person wrote, "Everybody his homie when he walks in with bands like that." Meanwhile, someone else wrote, "Mr. Beast: finally a worthy opponent," and another commented: "Lol that's blessings for real."
Post Malone really loves his fans. When he had to cancel his concert in Boston, he took to social media to announce the postponement of his performance. He wrote, "On tour, I usually wake up around 4 o'clock PM, and today I woke up to cracking sounds on the right side of my body. I felt so good last night, but today it felt so different than has it before. I'm having a very difficult time breathing, and there's like a stabbing pain whenever I breathe or move. We're in the hospital now, but with this pain, I can't do the show tonight."
He continued, “I’m going to make this up to you. I love you, Boston. I’ll see you soon.” Indeed, his love for his fans is truly wholesome!
