Celebrating his 29th birthday, here are 10 things you probably didn’t know about “Me, Myself, & I” hit maker, G-Eazy. (Photo: WENN)
You’ll be surprised to know that G-Eazy isn’t his real name. We know—shocking. The rapper was actually born Gerald Earl Gillum. (Photo: WENN)
He’s been schooled—like, for real. G-Eazy attended Loyola University where he got his B.A. in Music Industry Studies. “I made it work,” he says of balancing his school schedule with making music. (Photo: WENN)
But balancing a music career and college education wasn’t always easy. G-Eazy once toured with Drake but was forced to come home by his school teacher. “[He] told be if I missed another class that I would fail. So we had to play the show then drive back to New Orleans to get back to that stupid class.” (Photo: WENN)
Speaking of stupid classes, G-Eazy and comedian Andy Samberg attended the same middle school and high school in Berkley, California. Can you imagine being in a classroom with those two?! (Photo: WENN)
He’s played with perennial pop princess Britney Spears. The rapper was featured on her single “Make Me (Oooh),” and the two filmed a music video for their song in June 2016. (Photo: WENN)
He may look like a tough guy, but G-Eazy suffers from ornithophobia, a.k.a. an abnormal and irrational fear of birds. “I have a bird phobia. Pigeons are especially horrible,” he’s said. (Photo: WENN)
He loves himself nice pair of kicks. G-Eazy has a pretty insane shoe collection. “I have more than 300 pairs,” he claims. No wonder he’s always rocking the sickest shoes on the red carpet! (Photo: WENN)
Johnny Cash is not only G-Eazy’s favorite artist of all time, he’s also his style inspiration. “I always thought he was cool, just being a rebel, dressing in all black, and not wanting to always conform.” (Photo: WENN)
If you couldn’t tell by the romantic lyrics and video for their single “Him & I”, Halsey and G-Eazy have been dating for the past 6 months. (Photo: WENN)
Before his romance with Halsey, G-Eazy dated singer Lana del Rey for the best part of 2017, with whom, by the way, also released one romantic single, “Nothing Wrong.” (Photo: WENN)
You probably know him as Halsey’s beau, or for recently pleading guilty to assaulting an officer and carrying illegal drugs in Sweden. But G-Eazy is much more than his relationship and his tough guy shenanigans.
The rapper has been in the music scene for the last 10 years, and though it’s taken him a while to get to the top, his fame, just as his music, is only grown bigger and better. How high this crescendo will go is still anybody’s guess, but since success hasn’t eluded G-Eazy, we bet his arrest and subsequent apology won’t be the last thing we’ll hear from the rapper.
