The “James Dean of Hip Hop,” Gerald Earl Gillum aka G-Eazy, isn’t sleeping on his rising success in the rap industry. The 24 year-old Oakland native announced a new North American tour shortly after releasing a cheeky video for his new single “Almost Famous,” produced by Christoph Andersson.

The video, released this week, parodies the mainstream media circuit and shows a keen awareness to the superficial glare of the spotlight as Gillum continues to walk the tightrope between indie rap darling and commercial success story.

Since graduating college at Loyola in New Orleans two years ago, Gillum has been hard at work with a busy tour schedule, warming up the crowd for Lil Wayne, Snoop Dogg and A$AP Rocky, respectively. His headlining “These Things Happen” stops at the Fillmore on March 5, the same month his new album is scheduled to arrive. Tickets go on sale today HERE.
