Watch G-Eazy Celebrate Bay Area in Cameo-Packed ‘Calm Down’ Video

Oakland luminaries E-40, Too $hort, more go dumb with rising MC in expansive new clip

G-Eazy takes over Oakland with a slew of Bay Area hip-hop stalwarts, including E-40 and Too $hort, in the new video for “Calm Down.”

In fact, the cameo-packed, black-and-white clip notably mirrors the video for E-40’s own Bay Area anthem, “Tell Me When to Go,” from the scrapers turning tight ones to the hordes going dumb in Oakland’s abandoned 16th Street Station.

Amidst the revelry, the “Calm Down” clip boasts expansive, scenic shots of the Bay Area, venturing from Fruitvale Station to the intersection of Haight and Ashbury in San Francisco. Among the other local MCs featured are Nef the Pharaoah, Jay Ant, P Lo and Kool John, as well as Mac Wanda, the mother of the late hyphy godfather, Mac Dre.

“Calm Down” appears on G-Eazy’s 2015 album, When It’s Dark Out. The MC has a handful of live dates left this summer, including a few European shows, followed by scattered festival and state fair dates in the United States.
