Moving strong since the release of his huge first single “No Limit,” G-Eazy has announced that his new album The Beautiful and Damned will be released on December 15th. Special guests on the album include Halsey, Cardi B, A$AP Rocky, Kehlani, E-40, Charlie Puth, Anna of The North, and more. The album is accompanied by a short film and they both paint a very dire portrait of G-Eazy that is very ‘real’ and has never been shown by him before.
G-Eazy, real name Gerald, saw limitations in his life which motivated him to create G-Eazy as a method of making it past those and live how the felt he wanted to live. The problematic pattern that has come from the rise of his stardom is that G-Eazy lives in a constant dark cliché of addiction and over-indulgence in his favorite vices that surround him each night in the lifestyle in which he’s found himself.
The Beautiful and Damned shows us a desperate, humble and confessional side of Gerald. It shows a man in the middle of a serious conflict with his alter ego and he has genuine concerns about how to get back to who he is as a person. The album and film is about the duality of these two sides of his personality that wrestle inside of him and the start of that communication and process of how to preserve his true self.
