Post Malone and Envy Esports Gaming team up.

Austin Richard Post, known professionally as Post Malone, has joined the ownership group of Envy Gaming. The singer is now a co-owner of Team Envy, Call of Duty League franchise Dallas Empire, and Overwatch League franchise Dallas Fuel. The 25-year-old music artist is from North Texas, where Envy and all of its operations are based out of. Malone said he’d been looking for a way to enter the esports scene as of late and this move came at the perfect time.

“I grew up in Texas and I’ve been gaming my whole life, so this just really felt right,” Malone said. “I have always wanted to be a part of bringing gaming into the professional sports world so to be involved with what Envy is doing in my hometown feels like such a perfect fit.” This deal has been in the works for some time now. Mike Rufail, owner and chief gaming officer of Envy, and Malone have kept in touch about partnerships since last year. “I first met Post at Posty Fest in Arlington last November,” Rufail said. “We had a very real chat about his love for video games. He’s a genuine gamer who brings a lot of effort and personality into everything he does. I couldn’t be happier to have him invest and build with us.”

Malone has previously partnered with HyperX to launch his own line of gaming headsets and host streams for the brand. He also infrequently streams on his own, personal Twitch channel, playing games like PUBG.
