The inspiration behind Tello’s passion for music
‘G-Eazy is without a doubt my biggest influence in this rap game.’ Marks Matias Tello. He says that the artist started in a fully oversaturated area/scene in Oakland (the bay area) and still came out on top. Tello respects him and has analyzed the challenges that G-Eazy has pushed through to get to the top.

The key to Matias’s success
