Hailing from Oakland, California is rapper G-Eazy who Billboard calls “The Young Elvis.” In 2008, G-Eazy started out as a record producer and began working on numerous singles while also attending Loyola University at New Orleans.
However, his real popularity began in 2010 when he became the opening act for well-known rappers such as Lil Wayne and Snoop Dogg. Shortly afterwards in 2011 came the release of his mixtape The Endless Summer, which included an updated version of Dion’s 1961 hit, “Runaround Sue.” This track would end up generating more than 4 million YouTube views and gaining widespread acclaim.
G-Eazy’s debut album titled These Things Happen was released back in June of 2014 and the album debuted at number 3 on the Billboard 200, and number one on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums. The majority of These Things Happen was produced by Christoph Andersson and G-Eazy himself. With their R&B vibes, “I Mean,” “Shoot Me Down” and “Downtown,” were great standout tracks on These Things Happen.
Lastly, G-Eazy’s second album titled When It’s Dark Out was released in November of 2015. The recording sessions for the album took place during 2014 to 2015, with the album being produced executively by G-Eazy and Christoph Andersson. The 17-track album included high-profile guests such as Chris Brown, Tory Lanez, Kehani, Big Sean, E-40, Too $hort and Keyshia Cole.
When It’s Dark Out featured the hit single “Me Myself and I,” which peaked at number 7 on the US Billboard Hot 100!
