G-Eazy’s highly anticipated double album, The Beautiful & Damned, has arrived. Laced with 20 songs in total, the follow up to 2015’s When It’s Dark Out features guest appearances from A$AP Rocky, Cardi B, Kehlani, E-40, Charlie Puts, girlfriend Halsey, and more. Meanwhile, production is handled by the likes of Allen Ritter, Boi-1da, Murda Beatz, J Gramm, The Futuristiks, and more.
Serving as a double album, the project explores the highs and lows of fame and the conflict between Gerald and his rapping alias G-Eazy. “We were probably about 30 or 40 songs in and realized there were these two different themes and two different sounds. [Duality] has always been a common theme [in my work], so I figured, Why not fully go there and finish the whole concept of the album around that?,” he said.
“The concept of it is kinda like its about the lifestyle, the Beautiful and Damned like being a kid a having the dream of doing this starting from square one, from outside looking in from without having nothing, to chasing this dream and then all these years down the road of following this yellow brick road trying to get to where you’re going. One day waking up and being like ‘did it take me where I wanted to go?’ Is this fantasy of like sex, drugs, & rock roll is kinda cliche, but it’s cliche for a reason its dark.” G-Eazy explains.
Available now on iTunes, fans can stream the project in its entirety via Apple Music. Hit play and share your thoughts (below).
