The Bay Area rapper talked to Apple Music 1's Zane Lowe about his new album These Things Happen Too, which he released Friday via BPG/RVG/RCA Records. In the music video for his and Lovato's single "Breakdown," the two artists came face-to-face with the headlines they've made over the years, from Lovato's 2018 heroin overdose to G-Eazy's 2018 arrest on charges of assault, drug possession and resisting arrest at a Swedish club.
"It's one thing to have a conversation in private, but to make it a single and to video it, and to radio it, and to share that on a very, very, very public level, I just applaud Demi's bravery," he told Lowe. "I think as a human being, she's exceptionally talented. Even bigger than that, when you get that level of success, of stardom, of reach and ascend that high... Demi is a very powerful force of bravery, of talent, of ability, of everything that Demi stands for. I applaud Demi, and I'm appreciative that Demi did it. I'm never shy to ask people uncomfortable questions because I think that's where the greatness comes from."
