Gerald Earl Gillum, better known as G-Eazy, is an RCA signed rapper from Oakland, California. He has gained traction in the rap game, with his iconic dapper style, timeless sampling, and mix of West Coast and Southern Rap influences.
While G-Eazy’s rap career goes far back into his early teens, his first major hit “Runaround Sue” from The Endless Summer set him on the fast track to success. Years later G-Eazy’s release of “I Mean It” gave him his first platinum record and a platform to show the world what he is made of. One of his biggest and most well-known hits to date is the platinum record, “Me, Myself, & I” from When It’s Dark Out, which peaked at number 7 on the Hot 100.
He then went on to score two more smash hits in the form of “No Limit” with Cardi B and A$AP Rocky and “Him & I” with then-girlfriend Halsey. Both songs cracked the top twenty, peaking at numbers 4 and 14, respectively. Both hits were tracks off his 2017 album, The Beautiful & Damned which peaked on the Billboard 200 at the number 3 spot.
He has also had a number of high profile features on songs by some of the world’s biggest established and rising artists including Britney Spears, Post Malone, Marc E. Bassy, and Grace.
Though his roots are in California, G-Eazy went to school at Loyola University (New Orleans) to take classes in the music industry studies program. After school, he progressed his career by opening for big artists such as Drake, Snoop Dogg, Lil Wayne, and eventually have headlining tours of his own.
