Raised in Oakland, CA, G-Eazy made the decision to enroll at Loyola University New Orleans because of their strong music industry program where he started to cultivate and craft his own inimitable style while still in college. For the budding artist, the partying wasn't nearly as important as creating. He missed more than a few keggers so he could lay down tracks in his dorm room for a series of buzz-generating mixtapes culminating in his 2011 breakout, Endless Summer.
With the release of Endless Summer, G-Eazy started to garner attention from both the backpackers and the mainstream. Diploma in hand, he hit 2012 running. During that summer's Warped Tour, he produced, wrote, and recorded what would become his full-length debut, Must Be Nice.
