G-Eazy Pays Tribute to His Late Mother with New Song “Angel”
- American rapper G-Eazy released a new song “Angel” on April 15, 2022.
The song was written for his mother, Suzanne Olmsted, and arrived on her first birthday since her passing last fall.
It was written by co-produced by G-Eazy and Zac Brunson.
G-Eazy said of the song, “Grief can be a difficult thing to navigate. It’s definitely not a linear process and it comes at you in waves. There will never be enough words to describe the feeling of losing your best friend, or the desire to see them again. In a literal sense, I tried to capture that feeling of longing in the lyrics of the song. But 'Angel' is so much more than a song or a tribute. My mom was more than just my mom, she was everyone’s mom. She was everyone’s teacher. She was everyone’s inspiration. Nothing made her happier than loving people and sharing her creativity with the world. Her energy continues to live on through me, through those she connected with, and through those she inspired. That’s part of why creating 'The Dandelion Scholarship' is so important, her light will be able to continue to live on through countless others in so many ways.”
- In tandem with the release, G-Eazy has also announced an annual college scholarship in honor of his mom, “The Dandelion Scholarship”.
Through his charity, The Endless Summer Fund, the scholarship will award $15,000 to one US college-bound high school senior pursuing an arts major and the recipient announced April 15th (his mother’s birthday) each year. Further details on this year’s recipient and how students can apply in the future are to be announced.
