On Sunday, rapper Post Malone tweeted to his fans and friends, saying that if they want him to be "mentally stable, can y'all please let me live? I'm trying my best here. That's all I can do." This is the first we've heard from him ever since his performance at Brooklyn's Barclay's Center on Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve With Ryan Seacrest.
Malone had a roller-coater 2018, with his long-awaited album Beerbongs & Bentleys coming in at No. 3 on the year-end Billboard 200 albums roundup and his singles Rockstar and Psycho landing at No. 5 and No. 6 respectively, on the year-end Hot 100 songs of 2018 list. He also surprised fans in late December with the new single, "Wow."
The rapper is not scheduled to perform again until a Feb. 1 gig at State Farm Arena in Atlanta.

If y'all are actually my fans and friends and love me and want me to be mentally stable, can y'all please let me live? I'm trying my best here. That's all I can do.— Beerbongs & Bentleys (@PostMalone) 6 January 2019
A spokesperson for Malone could not be reached for comment at press time.
In August, the rapper went through a traumatic incident when he was onboard a plane from New Jersey to Luton, England, when two tires blew out at takeoff. The plane successfully landed and nobody was hurt, but the 23-year-old claimed after landing that many people “wished death” on him during the emergency.
“i landed guys. thank you for your prayers. can’t believe how many people wished death on me on this website. fuck you. but not today,” he said.
