G-Eazy released 'When It's Dark Out,' the follow up to his debut LP 'These Things Happen.' The 17 track album is a mellow departure from his previous work, but a welcome shift. G-Eazy features some relatively significant names (Big Sean, Chris Brown) and I would think this is helping in his transition to a more mainstream rapper.
'When It's Dark Out' will not disappoint fans who've come to love G-Eazy's sharp tongue and quick wordplay. The album is full of self-reflective tidbits of insecurity that I love from G-Eazy. The album is a little more mellow than 'These Things Happen' with tracks like 'Order More feat. Starrah'
The album is very contemplative of his newfound fame, considering if he'd still be getting girls if he didn't rap, asking if things would be different if he wasn't white, etc. ('What If feat. Gizzle')
New fans will love 'Me, Myself, and I' and 'Drifting feat. Chris Brown and Tory Lanez' as well as 'You Got Me' but I think 'Don't Let Me Go feat. Grace' is also worth taking note of. I'd also note 'Sad Boy' as a highlight, but that may just be a personal favorite.
