California’s legendary emcee and a global cult figure in Hip-Hop G-Eazy, born Gerald Earl Williams, is gearing up for new music. The iconic Bay Area rapper has announced that he is slated to drop his new rap record “Tulips & Roses” this Thursday.
Releasing on March 30th 2023, this will be Eazy’s first solo rap record since “Angel” – an affecting record dedicated to his late mother Suzanne Olmsted who reportedly passed away due to a “long-term illness” – on April 15th 2022. In October that year, G-Eazy linked up with Tales of The Town for a guest verse alongside P-Lo & Fredo Bagz.
However, G-Eazy is back in the studio and previewed the long-awaited record on social media. The brief snippet captures the ‘The Plan’ rapper playing a record from his studio sessions. Further, Eazy revealed the exclusive artwork and release date for his upcoming record. You can check it out here.
The rapper further shared an exclusive preview of his first music video in years. Directed by Los Angeles-based Hip-Hop filmmaker Roxana Baldovin, the Omar Films-produced visuals are slated to be released alongside the rap record. Check out the preview here.
G-Eazy went on a prolonged hiatus from music ever since the unfateful death of his mother. In November 2021, the ‘These Things Happen’ emcee shared the news of his mother’s death in a heartfelt Instagram post.
“The tears won’t stop. My eyes hurt, my face hurts, my body hurts, everywhere hurts. There’s no safe place to hide and there’s no way to lay, sit, or stand that doesn’t hurt. The pain is enormous. But I know you’re out of yours and that brings me peace. I love you so much,” Eazy wrote at the time.
“As deeply as I was worried about you and your physical health, I didn’t realize the extent of just how worried you were about me until you sent me the hardest letter I’ve ever had to read… Going to treatment for alcohol and drugs was my decision but your letter was what ultimately persuaded me,” the rapper further wrote.
Look out for ‘Tulips & Roses’ by G-Eazy.
