His latest music video, Downtown Love, was released Jan. 14th.

2. His songs encompass both hip hop and electronic genres, similar to artists like Kid Cudi or Kanye West.

Let's Get Lost, featuring Devon Baldwin, is a great example.

5. He's not afraid to play the bad boyfriend in his videos, like in "Marilyn" when he cheats on his girlfriend and she catches him in the act.

That wink at 0:37 though. *heart flutters and runs away giggling*

6. He's considerate of his fans (and our budgets!)

In an interview with Earmilk, he talked about distributing his music for free because he thinks it "reaches more people that way." He continued, saying "our generation has become completely accustomed to acquiring our music for free, so you've gotta focus on stuff you can't download, like live shows and merch."

7. He gives zero fucks about drama with other rappers.

Hoodie Allen called out G-Eazy, Mike Stud, and Riff Raff on his song "Nolan Ryan." While the latter two both shot back on Twitter, good old Gerald barely acknowledged it. Even on his AMA a few months ago, he brushed it off.

12. His video for "I Mean It" is a hilarious change of pace from his usually artistic videos.

If I ever said "G-EAZY CAN WE GO GET TACOS AND BE BEST FRIENDS," just know...I mean it. (seriously, can we have a Taco Bell date please?)
