These Things Happen : G-Eazy

G-Eazy finally releases his sophomore album, and it does a pretty good job catching your ear. It’s been awhile since I heard from the Oakland native. I first heard and saw him at warped tour a few years back. I was greatly impressed, then after that I didn’t hear much from him until this past year. The 16-track album has very few features, and mostly just G-Eazy on the tracks by himself holding his own. My favorite songs are These Things Happen, Lets Get Lost Feat Devon Baldwin, Complete,and Tumblr Girls.

These Things Happen the title track is an insightful track from G-Eazy. The beat is great; as well the lyrics are real and show us that G-Eazy is ready to blow up. Describing what he has been through this year, giving us a little insight.

Lets Get Lost is a synth beat with featuring Devon Baldwin. Devon does a nice job on the track and will sure catch the ear of many listeners. This is definitely a radio track that I can see all over the radios. G-Eazy’s straightforward lyrics are easy to listen to.

Tumblr Girls the name says it all. The lyrics are typical to the point where its about love, sex, and drugs. The way G-Eazy goes over the beat at one point is pretty neat. Its a really laid back track, Its just a song to vibe to.

Complete is one of my absolute favorites off this album. I love the sample from Ginuwine’s song Differences. The whole track is great even the lyrics are sincere, and is just straightforward.

G-Eazy lyrical skill is just average, his monotone raps go well with his beats. Through out the track his voice is that laid-back chill tone. He makes these all work for him though on the track, His storytelling ability is great as well as shown on many tracks. I personally love this album; it is though just a good album not an instant classic like Kendrick or Eminem’s first album. It’s a diverse hip/hop album that has synth beats and hip/hop beats. G-Eazy does though have consistently have great beats, even off his first album. He makes the laid back beats go well with his voice. G-Eazy has that hipster look going for him so when you see him rap; it’s like wait what? Anyway good album you can buy it or not.
