Post Malone will be hosting a Nirvana livestream tribute concert this weekend to raise money for coronavirus relief.
On Wednesday, the rapper announced on Instagram that he’ll be covering some of his favorite Nirvana tunes during a YouTube livestream. The event will take place this Friday and will be broadcasted from Posty’s home. Malone has also encouraged fans to text him at 817-270-6440 to receive more information about the tribute concert. Check out a video teaser for the livestream event below.
According to a press release, a special donate function will appear on-screen during the livestream so fans can donate in real-time. The money raised will go towards the United Nations Foundation’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for the World Health Organization. Google will also match all donations up to $5 million, with proceeds going to the UN Foundation.
Malone has been a longtime fan of Nirvana. He had previously covered the grunge icons’ song, “All Apologies,” at a 2017 gig in Boston. The rapper also has several Nirvana-inspired tattoos, including a portrait of Kurt Cobain inked on his knuckles.
Earlier this month, Malone was sued by a Canadian songwriter named Tyler Armes, who claimed he did not receive proper songwriting credit on the rapper’s 2019 chart-topper, “Circles.” Malone then countersued Armes, saying that the songwriter’s allegations were “utterly baseless.”
Posty’s manager also recently revealed that the rapper is planning to work on new music while in self-quarantine.
