What's the first thing that springs to mind when you think of Post Malone? Let me guess, it's probably his heavily tattooed face and curly mullet hairdo. Am I right?
But alongside his iconic appearance, there's no denying Post has had a huge cultural impact that can't be denied. Be it his signature sound or his undeniably adorable personality, he's a verified internet sensation.
Back in October, at a gig in Miami, the rapper truly made it rain on the crowd - to the tune of a whopping fifty grand.
And now he's done it all over again. Literally. He just gave out 50,000 dollars. Where was my invite Post?

But there was one facet of the show that really gained a lot of attention.
via: InstagramAlongside playing hits like "Psycho" and "White Iverson," Post proved he truly is a "Rockstar," by bringing a watercooler of fifty thousand dollar bills.
And at the operative moment?
That's not the only reason Post's appearance attracted attention.According to Page Six, Post turned up with a massive entourage fit for a star of his caliber.
He also honored a valuable frat tradition.After parading a case full of sparklers and Bud Light, Post ended up doing beer bongs onstage - and any beer drinker will tell you, that's not the easiest feat.
All make for a pretty good show.But none quite compare to making it rain to the tune of fifty thousand dollars. "The most epic night E11even has ever had. PERIOD. @postmalone is a certified rockstar," said one Instagram fan.
The crowd clearly loved it.
