G-Eazy and Drew Love have enlisted JAHMED for a new version of their 2017 track “Love Is Gone,” reworked in support of the Black Lives Matter movement. Released with an accompanying music video, the trio highlight the country-wide protests against police brutality spurred on by the recent murders of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor.

“I wrote “Love Is Gone” in the Summer of 2016…Fast forward 4 years later, and the same racial injustices are still happening day after day in our country. The fight against inequality is as important as ever,” Eazy said in a statement. “This is more than just a song to me, it’s a message… All lives can’t matter until #BLACKLIVESMATTER. Big love to my fam Drew Love and to JAHMED for blessing it with a new verse with some thoughts of his own.”

JAHEMD added, “Music is critical right now with everything that’s going on… it’s important that as artists we really utilize our platforms to the fullest extent. A lot of people don’t even make an effort to understand what’s going on, but if they see a name like G-EAZY attached to it they’ll pay attention. I’m honored to be a part of such a powerful record and to have this opportunity to get this message to my people.”

The multi-platinum selling rapper, producer, activist and philanthropist will also be donating all profits from merch sales to MBK Alliance, Campaign Zero and Colors of Change for the next month. Eazy will also be donating 20,000 masks to the Bay Area in partnership with Genies and Bella Canvas, with Lyft executing the deliveries. 15,000 will go to people on the frontlines of the movement and 5,000 will support the essential workers for COVID-19.
