ORIGINAL STORY: AUGUST 21, 2:10 P.M. EST
Post Malone is aboard a plane that is going to have to make an emergency landing after two of the plane’s tires blew out.
The rapper is aboard a private jet that took off from New Jersey’s Teterboro Airport, and blew its tires upon take off. The plane was originally set to go to England, but was rerouted to an airport in Westfield, Massachusetts.
According to air traffic audio obtained by TMZ, the pilot is flying to Massachusetts to burn more fuel for a safer possible crash landing. There are reportedly 16 people on the plane, many of which are part of the rapper’s team.
You can watch a live stream of the landing below.
Post Malone performed the closing song at the MTV Video Music Awards last night with Aerosmith and 21 Savage. After his own “Rockstar,” he jumped on guitar to back Aerosmith on “Dream On” and “Toys In The Attic.” He also won the Song of the Year award for “Rockstar.”
Post Malone is pretty much a scene kid at heart. When he was 15 years old, he tried out for Crown The Empire, but didn’t make the cut because his guitar string broke during the audition. Once he was in high school, his metalcore band covered Asking Alexandria’s “The Final Episode [Let’s Change Channel].”
He’s covered Rage Against The Machine’s “Killing In The Name” and Green Day’s “Basket Case.” Also, who could forget the time he and Bring Me The Horizon potentially did a collab, or when he had that iconic Twitter exchange between him and Underoath?
It is not clear when the landing is set to take place. We will update this story as more information becomes available.
