The new Post Malone album Hollywood’s Bleeding has a rather spicy collaboration with Ozzy Osbourne. In fact, as the rapper recently recalled to Beats 1’s Zane Lowe, Osbourne called it his “favourite” appearance he’s done “since Sabbath.”

“I was in Utah ’cause I had just got off tour,” Posty recalled in the interview. “So Ozzy went over to Watt’s house … and [he] said, ‘Hey… Ozzy Osbourne’s coming down. We’re gonna cut it, and I’ll Facetime you, and you let me know what’s going on.’ So we talked, and it was, like, a big [fucking] deal. Ozzy, Ozzy Osbourne!”

The rapper continued of the rocker, “I think he crushed it. He was talking to Watt, and Watt was telling me, yo, ‘This is my favorite [thing] I’ve done since, you know, Sabbath. Since I started my own way.'”

With a slew of medical setbacks all throughout 2019, Ozzy recently proclaimed in an interview that 2019 was by far “one of the most fucked up years” of his life. The legend, however, has not stopped the grind, with a career-spanning vinyl box set called See You on the Other Side coming out this November.

Post Malone has had his finger on the pulse of hip-hop and pop culture for quite some time, never making it a secret that he is also a massive fan of rock music as well. Before Post Malone was officially known worldwide as Posty, he was actually in a metalcore band called Ashley’s Arrival when he was in high school.

Since then, the rapper has dabbled in the rock world often. He’s frequently been seen onstage smashing guitars and even performed with Aerosmith at MTV’s 2018 VMAs and the Red Hot Chili Peppers at the 2019 Grammy’s. He takes the whole rock thing seriously.
