Post Malone is planning on hosting a Nirvana tribute livestream this Friday, April 24. As many of us already know, Post Malone is a massive Nirvana fan. He even has Kurt Cobain tattooed on his hand. But, this livestream isn’t just for Post Malone to mess round and play some covers.

Posty is raising money for the United Nations Foundation’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for the World Health Organization.

Post Malone has always loved rock and roll. There’s some uncovered footage of what seems to be his high school band covering Asking Alexandria. He’s covered Nirvana’s “Lithium” and “All Apologies,” screamed to Pantera‘s “Walk” and has collaborated with the legendary Ozzy Osbourne not once, but twice with “Take What You Want” and “It’s A Raid.”

Now, Posty plans on having some fun honoring the music he loves and raising some money for a good cause.

Post Malone announced the special livestream on his social media channel today (April 22). The post includes a teaser of Posty looking like a rockstar with the audible roar of a crowd in the background.

Want to see Post Malone before he became the chart-topping singer we know and love? Following a video on Riff Raff’s Instagram page recently, the “Better Now” singer was featured in a post from 50 Cent.

If you look at 50 Cent’s tweet, you can catch Posty in a video for a song the pair recorded in 2015 called “Tryna Fuck Me Over.” The song was featured on 50 Cent’s mixtape, The Kanan Tape.

50 Cent tweeted he “forgot” to post it when it was originally shot.

Posty wears his familiar braids, a bomber jacket, and a gold chain. The video starts with the pair talking in a car. A police car alarm sounds and 50 Cent jumps out of the car. 50 Cent jumps into the chorus, saying “y’all tryna fuck me over.”

A pre-facial tattoo Posty looks elated to be working beside one of the most recognizable rappers in the game. He’s no slouch with his verse, though. Some lyrics “right before I came into this bitch hot, needed cigarettes, I made a pit stop, spent my life tryna be a good guy, still, people want to see me get got.”

You can watch the full video below.
