Watching G-Eazy's rise to fame has been impressive to say the least. He went from selling out SoCal venues like the Observatory and the Wiltern to now selling out the Shrine for two nights. This massive hall was packed with eager fans, chanting G-Eazy's name. He has a knack for picking the best up-and-coming artists to accompany him on tour. In the past he's brought E-40, Kehlani, and Jay Ant to accompany him, but this time around he enlisted the help of Nef the Pharaoh and Marc E Bassy. After seeing Kehlani's success post-touring with G-Eazy, I predict that these two artists will have a similar fate. It's no doubt that G-Eazy has a massive fan base and a widespread influence. The last of the three openers was A$AP Ferg, who already has a fairly well-established fan base of his own, due to his affiliation with the A$AP Mob and A$AP Rocky. A$AP was the perfect final performer before G-Eazy's set. He had the crowd jumping, yelling, and itching for more. The anticipation was palpable even before G-Eazy walked on the stage; girls were going crazy, a tsunami of bodies were attempting to reach the front, and the chants were increasing with intensity when the lights dimmed. Even though he stands alone on the stage for the majority of his set, G-eazy is able to connect with the crowd and keep their energy high. He brought out several guests including Yo Gotti, Marty Grimes, and Bebe Rexha to accompany him for his current radio single "Me, Myself, and I". G-Eazy will continue to sell out dates faster than anyone will ever expect and he will definitely reach his goal of selling out the Staples Center very soon.
