G-Eazy turns 28 with a bang.
After taking it to the “Maximum” earlier this week, Young Gerald celebrates his birthday with three new songs.
First up is the West Coast bounce of “Get Mine,” a Murda Beatz-produced collaboration with Snoop Dogg. “Murda Beatz blappin’,” raps Gerald. “Uncle Snoop blessed it / 2017, really about to start flexin’.”
The flexing continues from there as G-Eazy teams up with Johnny Yukon on the Invisible-produced “Eyes Closed,” which finds him rapping about President Donald Trump’s daughter (again). “Fuck whoever didn’t vote,” he raps. “Wanna meet Ivanka, then elope / Turn her out, have her sniffin’ dope / Think I give a fuck? Bitch, I don’t.”
Finally, G-Eazy drops the electronic-infused Dakari-assisted banger “Special Love,” which keeps Gerald introspective. “When shit gets too real, why every time, I run?” he asks. “Why I always drink too much? What I’m trying to hide from? / I really need some peace of mind, like I’m just trying to find some / And I’m just trying to keep you here regardless of the outcome.”
Earlier this week, the California spitter released the 9th Wonder-produced “Maximum” and promised that a new LP would follow. “Just for fun… to hold you over,” he wrote. “album coming soon.”
His next LP, which is reportedly “99 percent” done, will be the follow-up to 2015’s When It’s Dark Out.
