G-Eazy is digging through rock classics to stay busy during the coronavirus pandemic. The Bay Area-bred rapper dropped renditions of Radiohead’s 1992 hit “Creep” and The Beatles’ 1968 track “I’m So Tired” on Tuesday (April 21).
“Creep,” which G-Eazy handles alongside actress Ashley Benson, gets a moody pop update with an underlying sample of Phil Collins’ “In The Air Tonight.” In “I’m So Tired,” he can be heard half-rapping, half-singing over John Lennon’s lyrics.
Besides these surprise covers, G-Eazy has also kept up with his philanthropic efforts amid the pandemic.
On March 27, his Endless Summers Fund launched its month-long free meals initiative, which has provided Bay Area youths with food truck-delivered lunches. Partnering with the Larkin Street Youth Services, the program was intended to make sure local kids were fed lunch despite the COVID-19-related school closures.
