Today, rising hip hop artist and producer G-EAZY debuted his new track “Almost Famous,” the second release off his forthcoming album These Things Happen due out March 2014, and corresponding music video.
“Almost Famous,” produced by Christoph Andersson, takes listeners on a ride through the young rapper’s career thus far, from touring the country to wild after parties, while also proposing how much farther there is to go in his budding career. The track’s accompanying one-shot music video, directed by Bobby Bruderle, follows G-Eazy as he reflects back on his budding career thus far while pondering where he has to go. The clip nods to classic magazine covers, with tongue-in-cheek references to Rolling Stone, GQ, High Times, Hypebeast and more. Each cover, of course, comes with a slight G-approved twist.
In addition to the release of new music, G-Eazy is pleased to announce his upcoming headline “These Things Happen” North American Tour. The 36 date tour will kick off on February 21, 2014 in Dallas, TXand continue across the U.S.and Canadatouching base in New York City, Chicago, Atlanta, Los Angeles, San Franciscoand Montrealwith additional dates to be announced.

Additionally, G-Eazy was just named Spotify’s “Spotlight” artist for 2014 and featured in Brooklyn Magazine for their “30 Under 30” list for emerging artists.
