Mon, 23 Jun 2014 10:15:15
G-Eazy delivers his own masterpiece, These Things Happen, today, June 23, 2014 [review here]. It's an immersive, irresistible, and inimitable trip crafted by one of hip-hop's most exciting young leaders. So, given the power of his latest work, ARTISTdirect.com asked G-Eazy to share the three biggest records in his own evolution.
In this exclusive feature by ARTISTdirect.com editor in chief Rick Florino, check out G-Eazy's "big three albums" in his own words.
Nas – Illmatic
It's probably the greatest hip-hop album ever made. It so accurately captures a time, an energy, a culture, and a scene. You listen to that, and you're in New York City on a stoop in 1993. You just feel like you're there. It captures that energy so well.
Dr. Dre – 2001
2001 was more my generation. I was ten- or eleven-years-old when that came out. That was a super huge CD at the time. It was pretty much on repeat when I was in fifth grade, and it stuck with me. It's something I always come back to.
The Beatles – Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
It's tough to pick one album from The Beatles. If I had to though, it would be Sgt. Peppers.
