G-Eazy "These Things Happen" (2014)


Amoeba Berkeley Hip-Hop Top Five Chart: Week Ending 06:20:14

1) G-Eazy  These Things Happen (BPG)

2) Riff Raff Neon Icon (Mad Decent)

3) Sapient Eaters vol. 2: Light Tiger (Sapient Kills)

4) Open Mike Eagle Dark Comedy (Mello Music Group)

5) Sadistik "Ultraviolet" (Fake Four Inc)

This week's number one album at the East Bay Amoeba Music store is from Oakland raised rapper G-Eazy, who relentlessly paved the way to success via relentless uploading of tracks online plus tireless concerts and touring (including Warped Tour and opening for Lil Wayne, and Drake), with his third album/first major label release
These Things Happen via SONY. Although he's been making music for many years G-Eazy's real break came 3 years ago with the release of his mixtape The Endless Summer that included a reworking of Dion's "Runaround Sue" that featured collaborations with Greg Banks, Erika Flowers, and Devon Baldwin and became a viral video sensation - paving the way for his current success or impending success. Devon Baldwin returns on this new album on the popular pre-album single/video released track "Let's Get Lost" (see video below). Elsewhere throughout his new major label debut, which is selling extremely well across the country, G-Eazy addresses his impeding major success on songs such as the title track, “Almost Famous,” and “Opportunity Cost.”
