G-Eazy Talks About Headlining His First Tour and Success As an Independent Artist
Up until now, whats your nicest moment been musically?
The biggest moment so far was probably the New York show the other night at Highline Ballroom. We usually do better on the West Coast, but I've always had this love for New York City and always wanted to be received here and to be able to sell out shows in New York. So to finally have this crazy, sold out packed show at the Highline Ballroom in New York City was a moment.
After this tour wraps up, what are your plans for the rest of the year?
After the tour ends, I'm going straight into the studio. I'm basically gonna lock myself up there for a good four or five months to work on the next project.
When can your fans expect that to be released?
Late summer/early fall.
This is your third time in St. Louis, and I believe the last two shows were sold out. What brings you back to St. Louis?
St. Louis is a really fun city, I have a lot of friends there. The venues are all great. One of the first places I played was the Gramophone [4243 Manchester Ave St Louis, MO 63110; 314-531-5700]. That's one of my favorite rooms in the country, the Gramophone is an awesome place. Some cities you have good experiences in, and some cities you don't. In St. Louis, I've always had fun whenever I'm there.
