NEWBURGH, NY (AP) – A private jet-carrying rapper Post Malone blew two tires during take-off at a small New Jersey airfield on Tuesday, but made a safe landing time later in New York State, making the rapper fans thank them for bathed him and diss those who "wanted death" on him while he was in the air.
The face tattooed singer / rapper, who had left for England, twittered: "I have landed boys."
"Oh my god, I hate flying in general, I do not even know what to say, man, I am shocked," he told the celebrity website TMZ on FaceTime. "There was a great team in that plane, and we are here, we are here on earth and I need a beer, and I need some wine, at the same time, mixed together."

Fans had gathered at New York Stewart International Airport in Newburgh, about 70 miles (112 kilometers) north of New York City, after having heard that he was on board, and they cheered when the plane landed just before 4:00 PM. The rapper was scheduled to play at the Reading and Leeds Festival in England during the weekend, according to the tour schedule of his website.
"Thanks for your prayers", he posted on Twitter after Tuesday's emergency landing. "can not believe how many people wanted me to die on this website."
The troubled Gulfstream IV was on its way from Teterboro to Luton, London, in Luton, when the pilot realized shortly after takeoff that the tires had been blown up. The pilot started circling around the airport for about 30 minutes before the jet was diverted.
The aircraft originally had to carry out an emergency landing at Westfield-Barnes Regional Airport in Massachusetts, said airport manager Eric Billowitz.
A small group of curious and fans who had heard Post Malone gathered in the plane at the airport in Westfield, hoping to see the landing.
"We came down because he had the biggest day of his life yesterday and we wanted to make sure he was safe," said Jessica Kielb, from Chicopee, Massachusetts.
Billowitz said he was told that the plane had first gone to Massachusetts airport because there is a Gulfstream service center and because the airport has "one of the longest jobs in the Northeast" at 9000 feet (2,740 meters), but then the plane was then diverted to Stewart.
The characteristic of Stewart is a track with a length of nearly 12,000 feet (3,650 meters), long enough to carry the fat-filled C-5A Galaxy aircraft, loaded with supplies and better for such emergencies.
Post Malone took the title "Song of the Year & # 39; during the MTV Video Music Awards on Monday night in New York home for his hit Rockstar & # 39; with 21 Savage. The song is from his latest album, "Beerbongs & Bentleys."
The 23-year-old was accompanied on stage by rockers Aerosmith and 21 Savage for a wild performance that closed the awards show.
The plane had 16 people on board when it left Teterboro Airport around 10:50 on Tuesday, the Federal Aviation Administration said, but it did not specify if the number of people on board was the pilot.
