If you don’t come out, “You play ball like a GIRL”!

About G-Eazy

Schooled in the bay, tested in New Orleans, G-Eazy isn’t a stranger to paying dues. His live shows have turned heads from the smallest of Midwest clubs all the way up to arenas on dates with Lil Wayne, Big Sean, A$AP Rocky and Drake, among others.

Without label support G-Eazy has trekked across the US on multiple tours breaking hearts with his James Dean meets hip-hop vibe and unforgettable live shows. It’s not hype. It’s not a hit. It’s not an image. It’s all of the above. G reinterprets what he loves, not what everyone wants to hear, but in 2012 its looking like those two paths are starting to merge.

Gʼs been a fixture on the local New Orleans rap scene for a few years and more recently in the music blogosphere, but in the last few months his popularity has surged and as his national profile has grown exponentially. He recently opened up for A$AP Rocky at his sold-out New York City debut and supported Lil Wayne, Mystikal and others at the buzziest event of SXSW 2012– Lil Wayne’s DEWeezy party. G’s announcement on all 41 dates of the Van’s Warped tour has solidified him as an artist to look out for in the coming months. But it all comes back to the live show, one New Orleans music blogger summed it up with, “the young crowd was reaching the levels of mass hysteria reserved for the 50s and 60s rock ʻnʼ roll legends to whom G-Eazy has been paying so much homage…”
