G-Eazy drops Halloween-esque EP Scary Nights.

Isaiah Ramirez, Staff Reporter

Bay area rapper, GEazy, released his extended play (EP) record Scary Nights Oct. 18, just in time for Halloween festivities.  

The EP has ghoulishthemed beats and a Halloween-like vibe embedded within its eight tracks. The album’s cover also features the rapper with a Jokerlike smile 

Scary Nights has multiple features from some of the industry’s most touted artists like Gunna, Miguel, and French Montana.  

The EP’s title track contains lyrics that are now associated with Billboard topcharting artists, dealing with parties, his haters and how he came from nowhere.  

The intro is reminiscent of the iconic movie villain Jason Voorhees and continues with Eazy’s lyrics about his constant grind, I got bored and blew 50 on the crew, but my homies aren’t used to that because this is all new.” 

 Eazy, whose real name is Gerald Earl Gillium, has changed his musical style over time from The Epidemic LP to now.  

One thing that has not changed is his unique word play as the rapper displays on “I Wanna Rock” featuring Gunna: If I kill the best alive then it’s suicide / Not a one-hit-wonder, this is why I’m hot / No limit, all I got is me, myself, & I.”  

The lines refer to rapper Mims track “This is why I’m hot,” which is considered by many as the artist’s only hit single. The latter line references Eazy’s chart topping singles in “No Limit” and “Me Myself and I” which reached number four and number seven respectively on the Billboard Hot 100.  

The track also talks about the rapper’s relationship with ex-girlfriend and pop superstar Halsey, “When I said it’s her and I, that shit was a lie.”  

The lyrics are a reference to the ex-couple’s chart topping single “Him and I” released in 2017. 

On Demons and Angels, featuring R&B artist Miguel and hip-hop veteran, The Game, Eazy reflects on his career thus far and its trials and tribulations: “Swear I kept my receipts. I really pay dues. Life is heavy here; it’s not the everyday blues / The Bay area superstar also describes the fast-paced lifestyle of the rap game and the complexity of relationships / Life changes quicker when you live inside a fast world. She ain’t want the last name she just wants the last word. 

Miguel chimes into the track’s chorus with a soothing sound describing the tiresome times of the music industry. 

Eazy’s fifth studio album, These Things Happen Too, is expected to be to be released before the year ends.
