G-Eazy Faces His Inner Conflict in ‘Me, Myself & I’ Video Featuring Bebe Rexha
G-Eazy faces his inner conflict in his new video for "Me, Myself & I," a track featured on his forthcoming album, When It's Dark Out.
A birthday celebration is the theme here but G-Eazy isn't in the mood for the turn up. His foreign girlfriend (she flexes her language skills at the start of the clip) surprises him with a party in his honor at a posh pad. Once inside, it's apparent he's not feeling the mix and we watch as he splits in two: one G-Eazy stays to mingle with his friends while the other dips to the bathroom to escape the madness.
"Surprise, surprise, another night of turn up," he says sarcastically as he hides inside the bathroom. Singer Bebe Rexha's bold lyrics serve as the soundtrack to "It's just me, myself and I / Solo ride until I die 'cause I got me for life / I don't need a hand to hold, even when the night is cold / I got that fire in my soul," she sings.
Conflicted feelings culminate in the bathroom when four G-Eazys show up. "You asked for this. You signed up for this. All these people showed up for you, for your birthday, and you're complaining about it now?" says one rapper in favor of the festivities. "I didn't ask for this s---. It's not what I signed up for, man," the other G-Eazy, who'd rather rock solo, responds.
It's apparent Gerald Gillum isn't interested in the "hoes" at his disposal.
The Bay Area rapper is going for a different vibe on the follow-up to 2014's These Things Happen. "It’s midnight music. I live like a vampire," he tells The Boombox. "The music is created in the night and inspired by the night. Everybody sees the world a little differently when it’s dark out."
When It's Dark Out, due Dec. 4, features collabos with Kehlani, Too $hort, Keyshia Cole, Big Sean, Chris Brown and E-40.
