Raised in Oakland, California, G-Eazy has gained recognition as part of the growing hip-hop scene in the bay area, alongside artists such as Lil B and The Cataracs. Interested in making music since a young age, G-Eazy put together a local group known as the ‘Bay Boyz’ who released a number of songs on their Myspace page. He began to produce a number of singles as a sophomore while attending Loyola University of New Orleans.
With success from his earlier mix-tapes, G-eazy continued to release songs, such as “Waspy” and “Candy Girl“. In 2009, G-Eazy won the NAACP Best Music on Campus Woodie. G-Eazy has had the opportunity of appearing to open for Drake and in recent years, he opened for Lil’ Wayne and Snoop Dogg.
In August 2011, G-Eazy released the mix-tape The Endless Summer that is full of samples and his full length album Must Be Nice features another artist or sample on almost every track. The album was released in 2012 and the arguably most popular single, “Lady Killers” features Hoodie Allen who has been featured on our blog before.
