Inside Post Malone’s $3M, apocalypse-proof Utah bunker

A 2018 resurfaced clip of Post Malone — in which he referenced the United States government as “the biggest lie in the world” and urged people to “move out to the country” — is making its way around TikTok.

In the clip, which has amassed over 2 million views, the “Hollywood’s Bleeding” artist discussed the need to escape from cities in order to protect oneself from the government.

Around that time, the now-26-year-old singer did just that — he purchased a five-bedroom, seven-bathroom Utah abode for $3,093,750 under the LLC “Wow Cool House,” property records show.

Located in Salt Lake City, the residence spans almost 13,000 square feet and is situated on nearly 7 acres of land. 

“Move somewhere, because whenever martial law is declared … whenever your credit cards fail, whenever your banks fail … you have three days to get out of where you are because that’s when they’re coming for you,” said Malone, born Austin Post, in the February 2018 interview with Montreality. “That’s the big move. That’s checkmate right there. And they think they have you.”

He then encouraged people to make a move themselves and “get your scraps. Stand up for yourself. Build a tower. Build a long road where you can see them coming. Don’t give up, America.”

In a separate 2017 interview featured on the H3 Podcast — as Malone was in contract to buy the Utah residence — he revealed he would turn the home into an apocalypse-proof shelter and build underground quarters. 

“I’m going to put in, like, 30 bunk beds,” said Malone. “It’s free country out there. Like, you can buy suppressors in Utah. You can do open-carry. Walk into the grocery store with a handgun on your hip. Cowboy s–t. I can’t wait.”

Initially built in 1986, Malone’s home boasts canyon, mountain and city views and is located at the mouth of Cottonwood Canyon. 

Features include floor-to-ceiling windows, separate guest quarters and a private office, which backs into thousands of acres of conservation land, the previous listing notes. 

The expansive living room features a bar, and the gourmet chef’s kitchen comes with state-of-the-art appliances leading to a family room with an informal dining area.

In the recently resurfaced 2018 interview, the rapper called out “the f–king US government” as the “biggest lie,” adding it is it “not what it used to be.”

“It used to be so sick, and about the people, and about freedom, and all that s–t,” he added. “But now it’s just bulls–t. Now it’s a f–king reality show.”

Malone also vaguely predicted that there would be a lot of “weird s–t that happens within our lifetime” on the podcast. 

“It’s going to be fun until the world ends,” he continued. “But whenever the world ends, it’s going to be functional.”

Previously, the “Rockstar” rapper lived in a $26 million Beverly Hills rental.
