According to G’s girlfriend Halsey, he wasn’t recognizable enough to get through airport security when he realized that he lost his ID. So the rapper born Gerald Gillum did what any reasonable person in his position would do — show security his latest magazine cover.
“Gerald lost his ID and he’s trying to use the cover of @XXL as part of his additional identification to get through airport security I’m so annoyed,” Halsey says. G-Eazy confirmed what happened, with a shrug emoji and two words: “It worked.”
Starting in May, G-Eazy tours Europe and North America off the strength of that chart success. Until then, you can catch him in Rapture, Netflix’s rap documentary with Mass Appeal out March 30. The film features the Oakland native alongside Nas, T.I., 2 Chainz, Just Blaze and Rapsody.
