G-Eazy has taken to social media to share the sad news that his mother Suzanne has died. The cause is currently unclear.

He shared a collection of photographs of his mother on Instagram, including pictures from her youth. He began the post: "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."

"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."

The emotional caption went on to describe his admiration for his mother, speaking about the pain she endured and the suffering she went through. He ended the caption with: "You loved your boys more than life itself and we love you the same. Luckily we have each other to hold and to lean on and that's all that matters."

"Our hearts are broken, but they are full of love and gratitude for the life you gave us. With us always…we love you mom."

American rapper G-Eazy, real name Gerald Earl Gillum, also posted a video of a voice note his late mother had left him. She said: "Hey Gerald, I just want to leave a message and repeat just how proud I am of you. You have risen to the peaks of behaviour and creativity and this is just the beginning Gerald. This is going to be your life by the sounds of things."

Suzanne Olmsted played a huge part in the rapper's life, often attending his shows and encouraging him to go to rehab. In the Instagram post G-Eazy said: "As deeply as I was worried about you and your physical health, I didn't realise the extent of just how worried you were about me until you sent me the hardest letter I've ever had to read…going into treatment for alcohol and drugs was my decision but your letter was what ultimately persuaded me."

He shared the Instagram post to his story, which included a black and white picture of his mother posing with a serene expression in a field. The two were close and the rapper FaceTimed his mother on stage at BottleRock festival in September as she was unable to attend.

In 2018 the rapper launched Endless Summer Fund, a non profit organisation that helps young people reach their full potential and help out the Bay Area community.
