G-Eazy knows how to get things done. The rapper and producer opened the doors to his Hollywood Hills home for Architectural Digest, and it’s no wonder why he loves the Spanish colonial space for both work and play. 

“I’m eternally connected to my work so it just made a lot of sense to create a place where life and work intersect,” he told AD of the 3,642-square-foot home, which he purchased in 2017. “What drew me to this home initially was its warmth, and its homey kind of vibe.”

Filled with musical instruments and equipment, the home has vaulted beamed ceilings that G said “originally sold me on this house.” However, he admitted they basically redid most of the space, filling it with unique details that create a lived-in space. The living room, which is filled with original artwork, is anchored by a custom gray sectional sofa and chairs, with walnut and brass sconces featured throughout the home. There’s a floating rectangular bamboo coffee table and vintage hand-knotted carpet, as well as a piano that sits near a window. There’s shelves of books and “older, traditional rugs” that G enjoyed throughout the quarantine period, when he was at home way more than usual.

The kitchen’s white cabinetry was painted deep green, with a Moroccan white glazed terra-cotta tile backsplash. American walnut counter stools surround the Carrara marble counters, and accents of brass can be found on the room’s hardware. The dining room has a parquet pattern oak table with a hand forged iron base, surrounded by Bentwood and cane chairs. There’s a smoked oak credenza alongside, with a photo by G-Eazy’s mom above it. 

“Taste is a very nuanced thing,” says G. “I’m someone who cares about aesthetics, but I also want an energy and a vibe in a home to come through in the interior design.”

G’s primary closet used to be one of the home’s four bedrooms. Now, it’s a walk-in dressing area large enough for a sneaker collection “north of 500 pairs.” Featuring a floating glass display under a chandelier with hand-blown glass bulbs, it also has a closet island in the center and museum-grade lighting. Filled with custom closet cabinets, drawers, and adjustable shelves, the island and counter surfaces are made of Belvedere leather stone. An entire row of leather jackets sits atop a row of blazers and suits, but G admits it’s the footwear that steals the show. 

 “I love the whole culture around sneakers,” he said, “so I really wanted it to feel like you were walking around a museum.”

The primary bathroom was completely gutted to create a spa-like space featuring a eucalyptus steam shower and black concrete, and condensed floor to ceiling terrazzo tiles. Marble counters provide a strong contrast to the matte black hardware and fixtures throughout the space. 

The property also features a two-story guest house, which was renovated to include a recording studio on the ground level. With a custom neon sign reading “When It’s Dark Out” (a shout out to G’s second studio album) there’s also a leather sofa and plenty of instruments. The guest house also has a stylish lounge covered with gold and platinum records. Outside, there’s a fire pit with cozy seating and a saltwater swimming pool, which G calls “more or less a massive hot tub,” features outstanding views of Los Angeles. It’s where he comes out with his morning coffee to soak up the sun and “appreciate this vibe,” as he says.

“There’s just so much to be grateful for, and not take for granted,” he adds.
