Album Picks: G-Eazy’s “The Beautiful & Damned”

On December 15, 2017, American rapper G-Eazy released his fourth studio album by RCA records, “The Beautiful & Damned.” It featured guest appearances from Halsey, Cardi B, Anna of the North, and many others. In 74 minutes and 22 seconds, G-Eazy propels a new style for his personal genre, creating a darker and more inspective vibe. It is certainly worth a listen, at the very least. Here are the top picks from “The Beautiful & Damned.”

Pray For Me

An odd track but certainly one of the best, “Pray For Me” has a ton of personality while maintaining the dark vibe of the entire album. The “Wizard Of Oz” reference is clever, as well. Any well-placed references are worth noting.

Him & I

The most popular track, but certainly worth it. Halsey and G-Eazy make a great combo, and “Him & I” is a very fitting love song for the time, highlighting an unconventional kind of romance.


The production is what makes this track stand out. The lyrics are clever, no doubt, but that’s to be expected. The production is what keeps me coming back to this track.

Pick Me Up (feat. Anna of the North)

The subject matter of “Pick Me Up” makes it worth a few listens. While not being able to decide whether it is about drugs or women, production points play incredibly well into whichever topic.

Summer In December

A very laid back track from this album, “Summer In December” is the breath of fresh air from heavy production and subjects. This is certainly a late night drive with the windows down kind of song.

Mama Always Told Me (feat. Madison Love)

My favorite from this album, “Mama Always Told Me” has an oddly jazzy, swing production that plays very well with the vocals. The lyrics are clever and it’s easy to find yourself singing along.

Love Is Gone (feat. Drew Love) 

Packed with social commentary, “Love Is Gone” is an underrated track. Pay close attention to the lyrics and maybe read them through when you have a chance. Writers work hard to try to portray an ounce of this emotion.
