He's being mentored by production duo FKi
Every one of Malone's releases has been produced by FKi, the ATL duo made up of 1st and SauceLordRich, who have produced for Travis Porter, 2 Chainz, and Iggy Azalea (that OG Iggy actually kinda fye). They formed the partnership the first time they heard Post rapping and promised to assist on every step of his grind. They made two songs together the first night they spent in the studio, and the story goes that 1st woke up at 6 AM to find Malone singing -- they didn't know he could sing -- "White Iverson." The rest is history.
