Artist to Watch: G-Eazy
Dapper in black from head to toe with slick back hair, G-Eazy gives a glimpse into who he is underneath the exterior of an unlikely MC. His charm lies in his (strangely) elegant lyrics on tumblr girls and one night trysts layered with slick flow.
Rapper Gerald “G-Eazy” Gillium hails from New Orleans’s Loyola University. Scoring a #1 position on Billboard’s Hip Hop/ R&B this summer, G-Eazy didn’t start from the top has had a slow climb. Releasing his “These Things Happen” independently, he’s sold 47,000 copies his first week of June alone. Since then, he’s been picked up by RCA.
We know that G-Eazy calls Oakland/Bay Area home, but has spent the last two years hustling his mixtape nation-wide. From touring alongside punk banks on the 2012 Vans Warped Tour to headlining his own 40-city tour in early 2014. Just announced last night on Drake’s instagram, G-Eazy will be opening a few shows playing with the big leagues on the Drake vs Lil Wayne tour.
He’s everything you don’t expect but at the same time can’t quite place, but thats charm in his sound. Summer is winding to a close. Listening to his tracks are a perfect slow sear as the hottest season comes to a close. He has a lot of head of him and I can’t wait to see whats next.
