G-Eazy: Favorite Hip-Hop Artist at 2017 People’s Choice Awards


At the People’s Choice Awards that took place yesterday, G-Eazy got to walk away with the Favorite Hip-Hop Artist Trophy.

In winning the award, the Oakland rapper upended luminaries like Kanye West, Kendrick Lamar, Wiz Khalifa and DJ Khaled.

G-Eazy showed love to his fans shortly after his win by tweeting, “Love and respect to the fans yall are the reason we’re here in the first place and get to do the shit we do, forever grateful.”

For G-Eazy, this award means that his attempts to find his own sound paid some serious dividends. In the Fall 2015 edition of XXL Magazine, the Cali rapper spoke on how ignoring his self-consciousness led him to producing a style more uniquely his own.

“I want people to connect and identify with the stories and hope it means something a year from now or more,” G-Eazy explained. “You make music within this lonely space in a room with no windows for months on end. And then you just put it out. All you can do is dig deep and pour out everything you have.” read more at xxlmag.com
