These Things Happen Lyrics. Let's go Party in a penthouse, until I pass the fuck out Reminiscing being broke and hoping I would luck out Now-a-days I pull hoes; Swinging, never struck out Reinvested everything, just trying to get a buck out Will I ever make it? Felt fear on my life For a while was going through a nervous patch Then I had the most insane year of my life Crazy, cause I only saw the surface scratched Yeah, waking up next to a random girl I never knew Goin' after Marilyn's instead of Sue's Tryna bring her backstage then see what she let me do Till. Set backs of being almost on Opening up the shows I'm trying to get noticed on Labels calling the telephone that I wrote this on But I press decline, hit notes, and keep on going on Take a look at us, it's what you call a team Freight train, I'm leading everybody, full of steam Drinking simultaneously, rolling collard greens.
It's neither my fault or G-Eazy's fault, really, that I don't dig this album more. Author: Nathan Slavik. Now I don't want to push the Drake comparisons too far-the music itself doesn't sound particularly alike, and I'm not saying he's biting Drizzy's style-but I do hear in These Things Happen the same balance of boasting and regret, women chasing and heartbreak. And when you're young, isn't that life? Just like "Far Alone," aren't you constantly being told by those older than you that you'll never make it going your own way, that you have to follow the path they laid down?
OMG EVERYONE! I can't even thank anyone from this stream with words. I'm truly speechless. You guys changed my and my dad's life forever and me and my dad will remember this my whole life. Thanks to 1/2. 15 ответов 11 ретвитов 205 отметок Нравится.
Produced by G-Eazy along with contributions from Christoph Andersson, Jay Ant, Blackbear, Jordan Evans, and Matthew Burnett, These Things Happen showcases the California-based rapper's electronic and indie rock-tinged hip-hop sound. The album follows up a string of G-Eazy's previous mixtapes, including his hugely popular and widely lauded 2011 release, The Endless Summer. Featured on the album are such guest artists as E-40, Remo, John Michael Rouchell, Devon Baldwin, and others.
But ultimately These Things Happen’s strongest statement concerns the seismic impact of the artists who influenced its creation. Perhaps it’s no surprise that G-Eazy hails from Oakland-although, he went to school in Albany, California, according to this early interview, which is closer to Berkeley. But regardless of the specifics, Bay Area hip-hop is historically a diverse ecosystem, so it makes sense as the first frontier for middle class-appealing white rappers to express themselves in a way that scans authentically. His lyrics on These Things Happen include references to growing up on Mac Dre and the hyphy movement, and the album features appearances from E-40 and Bay producer Jay Ant. But outside of guest spots and textural references, the Bay Area influence feels absent G-Eazy’s current music, never mind the Oldies revivalist single that sparked his rise.
Last month, G released his independent album These Things Happen, which features his hit singles "I Mean It" and "Lotta That. This week, the Oakland rapper's LP sold 46,000 copies, which is considered his best week yet. It is also the second highest debut for an indie LP since 50 Cent's Animal Ambition, where he netted 47,000 copies in his first week. out of TDE didn't fare so well. The LP only sold 21,000 copies that landed him just shy of the No. 10 spot.
