The emotional lyrics in his songs give listeners a glimpse into Post’s mind. For example, he told GQ that his song Goodbyes is “about sad times, and crying and s–t, and heartbreak and s–t.”
Adding, “Middle school, I would cry myself to sleep every fuckin’ day,” he said. “High school, the same thing. I tried to drink some beers to get rid of that shit, but it just never goes away. And I don’t think that’s anybody’s fault; it has to do with something predisposed in you.”
Though his debut album was called Stoney, a nod to the nickname his friends gave him, he no longer smokes marijuana, telling GQ that he experienced a pot-induced anxiety attack that he has not gotten over.
Nowadays, Post’s party-diet consists of alcohol, noting that he doesn’t consume anything stronger than that.
