Video: LACMA's Sheats-Goldstein House Stars In This G-Eazy Video
Here is your video tour of the Sheats-Goldstein House, if you can look past the women in swimsuits.
LACMA recently received the Sheats-Goldstein House, located in Beverly Crest, as a donation. The home, designed by John Lautner and featured in The Big Lebowski, was owned by James F. Goldstein, who decided to donate it to LACMA along with a $17 million endowment for maintenance and several adjacent properties.
Curbed Los Angeles noticed that the gorgeous home made an appearance in the new G-Eazy video for "Order More" feat. Starrah. G-Eazy described the song to Nylon as his "strip club song." In it, he mentions having a duffle bag of singles. He also mentions a neighbor calling the cops on him during an after party at his home.
He told Nylon:
"That was one of the last songs I made on the album, and I had just moved into a big house in the hills in L.A. and I was excited about this new house. I was having parties, naturally—that's what you do when you move into a house in the hills in L.A. and you're a rapper. And I kept getting the cops called on me because the neighbors didn't like me. I found out an actor was my next-door neighbor, and he and my other neighbors kept calling the cops, so that's why I say that line in the second verse."
That line would be: "My neighbor is a bitch, they tried to call the cops/F*ck you, I'm living life, all good, don't need advice."
