Following a bunch teasing and lead single "No Limit" with A$AP Rocky and Cardi B, G-Eazy has cemented a release date for his new album/film The Beautiful & the Damned.
Come December 15, the Bay Area hip-hop figure will release the new album BPG/RVG/RCA Records, with a new short film arriving at the same time Apple Music. Along with A$AP Rocky and Cardi B, the LP will feature the likes Halsey, Kehlani, E-40, Charlie Puth and Anna the North.
Apparently, The Beautiful & the Damned will be a double album that conveys the two different sides G-Eazy/Gerald.
A press release explains the project like this:
Originally Gerald saw limitations in his life so he created G-Eazy as a way to make it past those and live how he thought he wanted to live and become that rockstar he thought he wanted to be. The problematic pattern that has come from the rise this star is that G-Eazy lives a constant dark cliché addiction and over-indulgence in his favourite vices that surround him each night in the lifestyle in which he's found himself. Heavy handed in reference to F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel the same name, 'The Beautiful and Damned' shows us hung-over Gerald left having to clean up reckless G's aftermath on a daily basis.
The duelling narrative he conveys is as desperate, humble, and confessional as it is brazen, celebratory, and loud in its own hubris. He is in the middle a very serious conflict with his alter ego and he has genuine concern as well as thoughts about how to get back to who he is as person.
This album and film is about the duality these two characters who wrestle inside him, and the beginning that communication and process on how to preserve his true self.
