G-Eazy: “There’s No Ceiling for an Independent Artist”

Moving out to New Orleans

Moving to New Orleans:

G-Eazy: “It was crazy. Especially at that time, Wayne was at his peak with all his mixtapes. The Carter III came out my freshman year, so if you can remember what his buzz was like at that time, you couldn’t go to any club or any bar in New Orleans and not hear his music all night long. To see somebody just be on top and be embraced by his hometown was crazy. It was inspiring.

“Most people like to do the college thing and have a big social life, hit the bars every night or whatever. I was in my dorm room, Pro Tools set up, working on beats or recording vocals.”
