G-Eazy is currently enjoying the success of his fourth studio album The Beautiful & Damned, and this morning, the “Him & I” rapper hit up The Breakfast Club to chop it up with DJ Envy, Angela Yee, and Charlamagne Tha God. Off the bat, the conversation veered toward G-Eazy’s battles with drugs and alcohol, which also represents one of the album’s dominant themes. Despite Charlamagne’s warnings that Hollywood might suck him dry, G-Eazy seems content with the mentality of living day-to-day. It doesn’t take long for the subject to change to H&M and their recent controversy, which led to G-Eazy severing all ties from the clothing company.
“When I saw that, you know, feeling how I felt, it wasn’t even like, a conversation,” says G-Eazy. “Call my people and get me out of this, cause this is not cool. I’m not putting my name on this.” G-Eazy goes on to express disappointment with the way it all played out, stating “I’m very guarded with what I put my name on….I was excited about H&M…that was a big opportunity to put clothes all around the world, and do something I actually liked, and was cool with, and then I saw that happen.” He emphasizes that while he walked away from a big payday, “you can’t miss what you don’t have.”
