Q&A WITH: G-EAZY

G-Eazy’s new album “The Beautiful And Damned” is set to be released this Autumn.

WHO OR WHAT INSPIRES YOUR MUSIC?

I listen a lot of music, all type of genre, like Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Nina Simone, Johnny Cash,

TOP THREE ARTISTS YOU’D LIEK TO WORK WITH?

Mac Dre, Michael Jackson, and Frank Ocean.

HAS LIVING IN OAKLAND, CALIFORNIA AFFECTED THE WAY YOU MAKE MUSIC?

Yeh for sure, the Bay is a really cool please, it’s hard to describe unless you’ve been there for some time to get the vibe. It’s very different. It made me into a man who I am today. The way I dress, my attitude, thoughts towards the world, everything really. My music was always my guidance.

YOU’LL BE RELEASING A NEW ALBUM “THE BEAUTIFUL AND DAMNED” IN AUTUMN THIS YEAR. ARE THERE ANY SNEAK PEAKS YOU CAN SHARE WITH US?

It’s a lot really. I made so many songs and was quite hard to cut it down to a few which will be in the album. So I decided to put more songs on it than usual. It has got two sides on there you know, my Gemini, my Ying and Yang.

YOU’RE PERFORMING WIRELESS THIS WEEKEND…

Yes, this Friday. Man I’m excited, I love it here. This is my third time doing Wireless. Always good vibes.

WHAT IS YOUR DESIRE WHEN IT COMES TO THE BACKSTAGE FOOD?

You know what, depends what time of the year it is, where am I. Right now I like cools drinks, lots of watermelon, and no junk food. When it’s winter I like a lot of sweets. It depends.

DO YOU PREFER TO PERFOM IN THE US OR UK/EUROPE?

It’s different, I don’t know how to explain exactly. Out here they’re not scared, they jump and do mosh pits, it gets crazy, like a good aggressive energy. In the US is quite the same but not as electric as over here.

YOU JUST SIGNED THE STILLHOUSE WHISKEY PARTNERSHIP. HOW COME?

I felt that was the right thing to do. It needs to be someone authentic and true to match me. This is not just a photo and that’s it. This is long term, it’s different. You have to believe in the company and the brand, it has to truly match your lifestyle. It also fits my look.

WHAT DRINKS DO YOU DESIRE THE MOST?

Don’t get me started (laughs).

TOP THREE THINGS YOU CAN’T BE WITHOUT?

Definitely my cologne, tooth brush, and I’d say water. I drink a lot of water (laughs).

IF YOU’D HAVE TO DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE WITH ONE BRAND, WHO WOULD THAT BE?

YSL. I wear YSL basically on a daily basis. I also wear a lot of black. It’s very minimal, good quality, a lot of black… I also do wear Supreme, Gucci, but YSL is a must.

HOW MANY SHOES ARE IN YOUR COLLECTION?

You got me here… I’d say… I’ve probably got about 35 pairs of Vans. You know, new and extremely dirty, it depends what level and colour. Sometimes the dirty ones go better with certain outfits so I keep them that way. I like to wear them with Gucci pants.

PLANS FOR THE REST OF THE YEAR?

New album, touring again. Same old everyday really. Trying to take over the world.
