Published Nov 08, 2017Following a bunch of teasing and lead single "No Limit" with A$AP Rocky and Cardi B, G-Eazy has cemented a release date for his new album/film The Beautiful & Damned.
Come December 15, the Bay Area hip-hop figure will release the new album via BPG/RVG/RCA Records, with a new short film arriving at the same time via Apple Music. Along with A$AP Rocky and Cardi B, the LP will feature the likes of Halsey, Kehlani, E-40, Charlie Puth and Anna of the North.
Apparently, The Beautiful & Damned will be a double album that conveys the two different sides of 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 of this star is that G-Eazy lives a constant dark cliché of 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 of 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 of 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 of these two characters who wrestle inside of him, and the beginning of that communication and process on how to preserve his true self.
While so far we do not have a tracklist, you can see the album art above. You can also watch a newly revealed trailer for the short film below.
