To celebrate his 29th birthday, G-Eazy decided to surprise his fans with a gift and release a three-track EP titled The Vault. You can find new songs there, as well as cut tracks that didn’t make his latest album The Beautiful and Damned, which was released in December 2017.
The first track, “Power,” features Nef the Pharaoh and P-Lo. This track references how G feels “high” off of the power that he has over others who are around him. He also makes mention of how his job is exhausting, but he loves living the life of a “Beatle.”
“Green, green, wasabi, only hundreds and fifties” open up the second track “Wasabi,” which features Global Dan. Throughout the song, the two of them list off all of the luxuries that they get to enjoy in their lives. G also pays homage to the Bay Area and rapper Mac Dre’s life. “Rest in peace Mac Dre, shed a tear on November 1st, will always remember that day,” he spits.
The last track, “Over Me,” features RJ and Jay Ant. G is again proclaiming his status in the game as “alpha” and letting everyone around him know that he’s in charge. Despite being in a relationship at the moment, the lyrics on this track warn others to not leave their girls alone around him. The tracks found on this EP are not as radio-worthy, which is why they may have been cut from The Beautiful and Damned, but OG fans were still thrilled to be hearing this side of G-Eazy again.
