“There are not many things or places that have helped define me and my career more than the city that raised me,” G-Eazy said. “What Oakland Roots and Soul are doing for the people of The Town and the community is truly one of a kind and something when asked to be a part of I had to jump in right away.”
G-Eazy rose to music stardom in the mid-2010s and has placed 16 songs on the Billboard Top 100. His songs Me, Myself & I and No Limit cracked the Top 10 and stayed on the Top 100 chart for 37 and 29 weeks, respectively.
“We all know G by his music, but we also know that he is Oakland through and through,” said Oakland Roots and Oakland Soul CMO Edreece Arghandiwal. “Throughout his entire career he has made it a point to take Oakland and the Bay Area to the Universe.”

The Roots were founded in 2019 by a group of Oakland natives and have since launched a women’s team, the Oakland Soul. They play their games at Laney College and compete in the National Independent Soccer Association.
The team and G-Eazy will release merchandise at the Roots’ final home game of the season on October 1. To view it, go to the Roots’ website.
