Along with a massive music career and more recently an acting career, Post Malone is a man of many talents. Along with his Rosè side-hustle, Provence, the rapper is even starting his own beer pong league – we’re not even kidding. But if you thought his business ventures stopped there, it appears Malone has a new company stake, and it’s a big one.
Post Malone is now the co-owner, with “an undisclosed equity stake,” of Texas’ biggest Esports group Envy Gaming — the parent company for Dallas Fuel, Dallas Empire and Team Envy. Founded in 2007, Envy has grown to become one of biggest names in Esports.
“I grew up in Texas and I’ve been gaming my whole life, so this just really felt right,” noted Malone in a press release. “I have always wanted to be a part of bringing gaming into the professional sports world so to be involved with what Envy is doing in my hometown feels like such a perfect fit.”
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the deal was brokered by the Rockstar rapper’s management teams from London Entertainment Group, United Talent Agency and Electric Feel Entertainment. It is no secret that Post is an avid gamer, with a brand partnership in place for Hyper X.
