G-Eazy had first teased the idea of a sequel to his 2014 album way back in 2019 while speaking to his alma mater. The rapper also took to Twitter a few hours before the release of his new record where he shared how pumped he was for his latest project. “I can’t believe it’s almost here… f**k I’m too juiced.”
G-Eazy recently spoke to Entertainment Weekly where he shared why he decided to release his sequel to his debut album at this time. “To me, the album represents a full-circle journey. Setting out with all this ambition on the first one as a wide-eyed kid who wanted the world, wanted the universe, wanted to travel, wanted to transcend, wanted to take it above and beyond, and then experiencing all of that,” said Eazy.
He added, “Getting to take my music all around and make so many dreams come true, but kinda reflecting on the journey as a whole, as well as the impact it’s had on me for better or for worse, from the highest of highs to the lowest of lows, to the adversity you face as you push through this journey.”
