G-Eazy has finally released something to hold his fans over until the release of "These Things Happen Too".
The Oakland born hip-hop artist/rapper has dropped a much anticipated EP Scary Nights. This comes just a few months after the release of B-Sides. The special treat includes features from notable artists such as fellow California rapper The Game, Miguel, French Montana, Moneybagg Yo, and Gunna. Most of the tracks were produced by Boi-1da who is known for producing Rihanna’s “Work”, Drake’s “God’s Plan”, and Kendrick Lamar’s “The Blacker the Berry” just to name a few. JetsonMade is another notable producer who has worked with greats like Lil Wayne and newer artists like DaBaby, Sunna 4 Vegas, and Joyner Lucas.
This eight track EP has elements of his past album When It’s Dark Out.The heavy piano usage and simple base pattern is the signature sound that he seemed to have gotten away from in his latest album The Beautiful & Damned. Listening through, this EP gives you what we can only assume is a taste of what comes with his next album.
Let’s break down the top 3 songs.
1) “I Wanna Rock” featuring Gunna: The high pitched piano to start the song sets the fast paced tone of the song. Gunna being featured on this track was not a bad choice but it could have also featured any other Atlanta artist like Offset from the rap group “Migos” or Lil Baby. The song as a whole is attention grabbing and something the listener can bop to.
2) “Full Time Cappers” featuring French Montana and Moneybagg Yo: The build up before the base drops really makes you appreciate the club feel of the song. JetsonMade, the producer of this track, usually wastes zero time to drop the baseline in any song he creates. This one song in particular however really allows the artists featured to incorporate their own style without sounding forced or uncomfortable. French Montana on the chorus would not have been my choice for a song like this but instead I would have chosen Ty Dolla $ign.
3) “Demons & Angels featuring Miguel and The Game: This specific song is different from all the other ones. It is not necessarily a love song but a song of reflection. Each The Game and G-Eazy speak on past relationships and how their actions led to the other person getting hurt while the always smooth Miguel sings the chorus. This song shows G-Eazy’s range and ability to work with all types of artists.
My review on this EP is an 4/5 stars. G-Eazy has tapped into his complete style and is ready to takeover hip-hop. His next release should take over the world.
