You Better Shape Up, G-Eazy Can Be Your Man
What does John Travolta’s greaser swag, sex appeal and rap all have in common? G-Eazy, as he’s called, is all of the above if I were to submit a description to Merriam-Webster. Born Gerald Gillium, G-Eazy hit the scene after graduating from Loyola University in Music Industry Studies just a year ago. One can’t tell. Whereas most college graduates are scrambling around working boring entry-level jobs, G-Eazy looks like he is livin’ the dream.
Recently on a duo tour with Hoodie Allen, G-Eazy is for sure on the rise. In regards to his newest album, G-Eazy’s Must Be Nice is one to add for those who want a fresh sound on their iPod. With songs carrying the tone of relationships, tour life and artful ramblings about life’s undertows, it’s refreshing to hear how this “white rapper” is both sentimental and reflective in his songwriting. In addition, the filmmaker Tyler Yee’s cinematography skills perfectly complement and aid in the transition of his lyrical storytelling with powerful visual imagery in G-Eazy’s music videos, particularly Marilyn.
G-Eazy keeps making it look easy, and we all know it isn’t.
