Whenever G-Eazy and Carnage link up, you know it's going to be something outside of the box, entertaining, and dope to boot. Tonight, the two share their new collaboration "Guala" along with the accompanying video for the song that will be included on their upcoming project Step Brothers.
Carnage previewed the project last week, and fans of the Bay Area rapper and Guatemalan-American DJ/producer are in for a treat when it drops.
But back to the video for "Guala," which features G-Eazy and Carnage flexing around town with big heads:
Watch the Daniel CZ-directed video for "Guala" above and check out what G-Eazy and Carnage had to say about the visual and what it's like to get back into the studio. You can also grab the single on iTunes.
What was the inspiration behind going with the big heads?
G-Eazy: Really just fun to be honest and a cool idea. We wanted it to be sticky but not cheesy. Plus we didn't have to do any special effects to Carnage's head since its that size in real life.
You guys have a history that dates back to 2008, and have a come a long way since then. What would a 2008 version of you be most impressed by if they were to talk to you in 2017?
G-Eazy: For myself I'd probably be the most impressed that I got my mom a house and a car... and that the first car I bought in life for myself was my dream car. That plus the simple fact that I didn't give up because in 2008 nothing was guaranteed. As for Carnage, I'd probably be the most impressed by how much much weight he's been able to continually gain since 2008. It's almost like a personal challenge for him.
Carnage: 2008 me would be most impressed by the amount of respect I have gained from my peers and how much money I've made more than G.
Fans have been waiting for you guys to link up for more than a one-off, and this project feels like a step in that direction. What was it like getting back in the studio for an extended period?
G-Eazy: All jokes aside, It was easy, we did it in 2 nights. We've literally known each other forever and we both worked our asses off for years to come up and make it to this point. We've both always had that same level of ambition, even when we were unknown. That's my brother for life so we'll probably keep working together for the rest of our careers.
Carnage: We started working on this when G came back to reality and noticed how much he needed me in his life... so about 3 months ago hahahaha.
