Next Friday, December 15th is shaping up to be another monstrous day for albums. Not only is Eminem, Jeezy, N.E.R.D., and Boosie Badazz all set to drop new albums, but Bay Area rapper G-Eazy is also joining in on the fun and will release his highly anticipated double album The Beautiful & Damned. Having already shared numerous songs off the project, and its artwork, Gerald decided to come through last night and shares its official tracklist on Instagram.
Laced with 20 songs in total, the follow up to 2015’s When It’s Dark Out will feature guest appearances from Charlie Puth, Cardi B, ASAP Rocky, his girlfriend Halsey, Kehlani, E-40, Drew Love of THEY., and more. Meanwhile production will be handled by the likes of Boi-1da, Allen Ritter, The Futuristics, Dakari, and more.
“The concept of it is kinda split in half. It’s two CD’s but for all in tense of purposes its 20 songs, it’s just a long album,” he said in an interview with Angie Martinez. “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.
