Almost Famous
G-Eazy Lyrics


Young with too much cash, watch how I came up fast
They say I'm next to get it
They bring your name up last
And while I made it splash
Rappers came and passed
But still I ask myself
How long does famous last?
(I ain't worried 'bout it tonight) How long does famous last?
(Blow all this cash, I might) How long does famous last?
(Tell her welcome to the good life) How long does famous last?
(Ooh) How long does famous last?

I'm addicted to this life style
Never going back to no basic shit
When we're on tour every night's wild
Thinking 'bout the days we weren't making shit
Spending everything just to make it back
Saying everything never take it back
So if you don't fuck with me I'm okay with that
I'm okay with that (okay with that)
In a black shirt and some faded jeans
Been around the world in these APC's
Working nonstop tryna take the keys
Off the lot next week spendin' 80 G's
Intro my floor to your lady's knees
Always on tour 'cause I'm makin' cheese
Michigan in February is 8 degrees
And the fans waiting outside could maybe freeze
Yeah, smokin' on killa
Never going nowhere unless your team is strong
Yeah, finally makin' skrilla
Everywhere I go I bring my team along

Yeah, now I'm almost famous
Still right here with the oldest faces
Swear I came up from the coldest places
Young man gets everything, he goes and chases, aw man

Young with too much cash, watch how I came up fast
They say I'm next to get it
They bring your name up last
And while I made it splash
Rappers came and passed
But still I ask myself
How long does famous last?
(I ain't worried 'bout it tonight) How long does famous last?
(Blow all this cash, I might) How long does famous last?
(Tell her welcome to the good life) How long does famous last?
(Ooh) How long does famous last?

I'm tryna marry Kate Upton
Blow this money too quickly
To them squares who trying to hate, fuck them
You can't catch me I move too swiftly
I'm always going through customs
When I leave I'm knowing you miss me
We run through bottles like nothing
Like I'm tryna drown in this whiskey
Indulge in everything we wish
We drink it straight with no mixers
Got bitch drinks if you squeamish
At the after party no pictures
My bag of trees look greenish
Got a bad bitch to roll swishers
This life styles the sweetest man
I'm shining now just like fixtures
Yeah do it for my city
Everywhere I go bro I rep the bay
Yeah, tell you it's a pity
But hating fucks always got shit to say

Uh, 'cause now I'm almost famous
Still right here with the oldest faces
Swear I came up from the coldest places
Young man gets everything, he goes and chases, aw man

Young with too much cash, watch how I came up fast
They say I'm next to get it
They bring your name up last
And while I made it splash
Rappers came and passed
But still I ask myself
How long does famous last?
(I ain't worried 'bout it tonight) How long does famous last?
(Blow all this cash, I might) How long does famous last?
(Tell her welcome to the good life) How long does famous last?
(Ooh) How long does famous last?

(How long does famous last?)

(How long does famous last?)

(How long does famous last?)

Just watched this again and this vid is a lot more elaborate.
Not only does the popularity and range of each magazine grow with each scene but also...
G-Eazy's posing and gesture changes.
1st shot - he's wearing a regular get up, looking at the camera - head down, eyes up. Kind of doing a pose, but not really knowing what he's doing.
2nd shot - modelling like a model, not much like a celebrity. very common stuff.
3rd shot - Going international. Style of a rockstar. Rockstars were not exactly the hot ticket in the time this was recorded, but the persona of one was developing. Cool shades to add to the hip-ness.
4th shot - smoking stuff. rapper stuff. more like a rapper, less like a run of the mill model.
5th shot - slowly raising his head at the camera - gaining confidence, coming out of the shadows of the underground.
6th shot - rising star. slicking back the hair is a gesture of preparing himself visually for what's to come.
7th shot - make me look cool. not looking at the camera. it's a remark you can make after achieving a certain level of fame. you just tell the photographer - you know what to do, and they do it.
8th shot - getting that type of fanbase. women, life pace increasing.
9th - reached the big time, he's the boss now. challenging look in the eyes as if to say "look at me, this is me now, and you ain't thought i'd be here"
10th - set into the fame. he knows how to handle it. he's been around the globe and back. he knows it all.
11th - forbes is the symbol of money and wealth. success is what he reached.
this is a whole journey described with these shots.
edit: i'm lowkey happy that this didn't go unnoticed. didn't think people would respond, but still pretty cool to see people actually read some of that :D

Young with too much cash, watch how I came up fast
They say I'm next to get it
They bring your name up last
And while I made it splash, rappers came and passed
But still I ask myself
How long does famous last? (yeah, don't worry about it tonight)
How long does famous last? (Young with too much cash)
How long does famous last?
How long does famous last?
How long does famous last?

[Verse 1]
I'm addicted to this lifestyle, never going back to no basic shit

Saying everything never take it back

I'm okay with that(I'm okay with that)

Off the lot next week spending 80 g's
Intro my floor to your lady's knees
