After almost two years since his debut album, rapper G-Eazy dropped a sophomore album at 12 a.m. this morning, “These Things Happen,” which is currently sitting at #2 on iTunes top albums, behind Ed Sheeran’s “X (Deluxe Edition).”
With a national tour, collaborations with artists like Hoodie Allen, Skizzy Mars and E-40 and an upcoming album, rapper G-Eazy is garnering a great deal of attention on the indie rap scene. The Oakland, Calif. native and Loyola University New Orleans graduate boasts a sound somewhere between Macklemore and Bob Dylan, and is touring the US promoting his new album. The up-and-comer stopped in Boston this past weekend for a sold-out show at the Paradise Rock Club. Before the show, G called in from Grand Rapids, Mich. to talk with The News about his success and his plans for the future.
