Our heartfelt sympathies go out to him and his family.
In a heartbreaking Instagram message on Wednesday, G-Eazy informed that his mother, Suzanne Olmsted, has passed away.
The rapper posted a series of old photographs of his mother, ending in a voice memo titled “Opportunity Cost Mom,” in which his mother breaks down in tears as she tells her son that she’s “very proud” of him and his successes.
“I love you so much. The shock still won’t let me accept the feeling that I’ll never get to hug you in person again. My queen, my hero, my everything… my mom,” he wrote in his caption.
“The tears won’t stop. My eyes hurt, my face hurts, my body hurts, everywhere hurts. There’s no safe place to hide and there’s no way to lay, sit, or stand that doesn’t hurt. The pain is enormous. But I know you’re out of yours and that brings me peace. I love you so much.”
G-Eazy went on to say how his mother persuaded him to seek drug misuse therapy before she died. “As deeply as I was worried about you and your physical health, I didn’t realize the extent of just how worried you were about me until you sent me the hardest letter I’ve ever had to read.”
“Going to treatment for alcohol and drugs was my decision but your letter was what ultimately persuaded me,” he added.
“They say the opposite of addiction is connection, and I’d never felt more connected to you than I have in the past months. Coming home to this wasn’t easy, and nothing will ever be moving forward… but like you would always say, ’One step at a time and don’t look at the summit.’ I love you so much.”
He ended his statement by expressing that, although his heart is “broken,” it is still full of “love and gratitude,” and that he is glad for the support of his brother, James Gillum, throughout the grieving process.
