How Did G Eazy Get Famous

By Tiara

Growing up as the son of two musicians, it was inevitable that music would be in his life for eternity. His father is Grammy-winning singer/songwriter Teddy Graham, and his mother is bassist Kimberly “Kim” Foster, who both perform with him as a duo.

He has one older sister named Ariana, and three younger brothers. He started singing at an early age, performing mostly covers before taking lessons to learn how to sing like his parents.

At just 15 years old he dropped out of high school to pursue his dream of becoming a professional musician. Since then he has released five studio albums and won several awards for his work.

His first major hit song was “My Life Would Be A Failure Without You,” which peaked at number six on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. It also reached the top ten in Australia and New Zealand. Followup singles include “Feelin' Myself Up” and "Fine."

Gus Dapplestein now lives outside of Los Angeles where he enjoys spending time with family, working out, listening to new songs, and supporting his favorite teams through football or basketball.

Before he was famous, G-Eazy was an up-and-coming rapper. He made his name by lyrically telling stories about his life and experiences through songs that people could relate to.

His music is full of powerful messages about self-love and confidence, as well as lessons for other aspiring artists. His lyrics often discuss personal triumphs and struggles, making him a popular choice for song covers.

He’s not your average artist, though! When it comes to celebrating success, he likes to do it with a little bit of flair.

G has always loved wearing flashy clothes, so at award shows and concerts he frequently donates some items to help others feel more comfortable in their own wardrobe. This includes buying new clothing or picking something similar and taking good care of it to ensure it fits you properly.

He also gives away free tickets and merchandise to show support for different charities and causes.

His song “No Tears in the Ocean” was released in 2013

In early May of that year, he posted his first music video for his track “Bassline.” It received over 1 million views within just one week!

It featured him performing the song while drinking what appears to be whiskey and using a plastic bottle as a microphone. He also does an impressive dance move at the 2:30 minute mark.

His next major appearance came when he performed the same song live on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. You may have heard it before then — it went viral almost immediately and has had around 30-million hits on YouTube alone!

Since then, he has only grown in popularity. Many people recognize his face from hit songs like “I See Him” or his collaboration with Taylor Swift titled “Bad Romantix.” Others know him simply because of his infectious energy on stage.

G Eazy released his second studio album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy in 2010

Before he was famous, he lived an anonymous life. He had jobs that he held down while also attending college at Pasadena City College. At night, he would either study or spend time with friends.

He struggled to fit in at school because he didn’t drink alcohol nor did he have many close friends. When people asked how his day went, he would say it was “great!”

It wasn’t until 2007 when G started receiving some attention. A classmate of his noticed him singing in class and got his ear by offering to help get his music career off the ground.

He eventually took him up on his offer and helped G record his first song. Since then, he has been helping him launch his musical career ever since.

G now credits his success to his undying passion for music and learning as much about it as possible. His favorite genre is hip hop so he always looks into what new artists are doing.

His song “Eazy-Duz-It” was released in 2010

In early 2010, Gey got his break when he wrote and recorded an unofficial track called "Eazy-Duz-It." The lyrics of this catchy tune focused mostly on giving yourself credit for success and helping you to believe in yourself.

The music video for the song features several scenes which show Gey celebrating his birthday with friends, him throwing his own party, and then him going through different stages of celebration (cutting up meat, passing around chips and dip, and having someone else pass the cheese).

At the end of the video, he takes off her clothes and puts on some underwear before grabbing a glass bottle and sprinkling it onto himself. He smiles as water drips down his body and onto the floor, establishing the song's title.

After sharing the clip online, it quickly gathered views and praise. Many viewers connected the message to those found in Drake's song "Start from Scratch," but replaced "scrapping" with "sprinkling." Some even said they learned how to celebrate their birthdays after listening to the song!

Geoffrey Owens eventually took ownership of the song by writing about it on Twitter and Spotify, making it official. Since then, he has featured it in many of his songs including his most recent hit "My Favorite Thing.

G Eazy released his third studio album, The Beautiful & Damned in 2008

Before he was famous, G-Eazy was just another rapper trying to make it into the music business. He took several attempts before really finding his voice as an artist. It wasn’t until his third album that people started paying attention. Released back in 2008, The Beautiful & Damned is considered by many to be one of his best albums.

He didn’t have much success at the time with the album, however. Only two songs made it onto the radio – both featuring Kanye West. One song even got muted for using the word “bitch” too frequently!

It wouldn’t be until 2010 when his career truly took off though. That year, his collaboration with Lil Wayne titled No Drugs Whatsoever peaked at number five on the Billboard 200 Chart. His next big hit would come almost three years later, but not without some controversy first.

His smash hit Clapping For The Money features Rihanna and has been used in numerous dance videos since its release. The lyrics also refer to suicide which some may find distressing. However, the song is mostly known for its catchy melody and rap verse from RiRi.

Since then, she has featured on more than half of his singles including My Favorite Song (with Alesso) and Happier (featuring Max K). Both tracks are top sellers today.

What makes him special is his ability to write beautiful melodies paired with powerful rhymes.

It took him almost five years before he decided to release his first solo EP under his own name in January 2011. Since then, his musical style has been described as neo-urban, R&B infused hip hop.

He has also collaborated with some of the biggest artists in the industry including Drake, Big Sean, The Weeknd, Beyoncé and Frank Ocean among others.

His most well known collaborations include their hit track What You Said which was featured on the soundtrack for the movie Dear White People and Drunk (Remix), featuring Justin Timberlake. Both songs reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

As of early 2019, he is one of the most influential artists of our time. His music has hit all levels; from having huge hits like My Offence and Sexy Dance Moves to songs that speak about mental health issues such as Keep Movin’ and Check Up On You.

His catchy melodies have earned him numerous Grammy Awards and chart-topping singles. He even boasts two number ones with In The Meantime and Let's Talk About It!

But how did this successful artist get here?

He didn't luck out and become famous overnight. It took years for his career to take off and it was not easy, he says himself.

In fact, he spent much of the past decade trying to lose the recognition he had achieved so far.
