Gerald Earl Gillum (aka G-Eazy) delivers his first official studio album with 2014's These Things Happen. Produced by G-Eazy along with contributions from Christoph Andersson, Jay Ant, Blackbear, Jordan Evans, and Matthew Burnett, These Things Happen showcases the California-based rapper's electronic and indie rock-tinged hip-hop sound. The album follows up a string of G-Eazy's previous mixtapes, including his hugely popular and widely lauded 2011 release, The Endless Summer. Featured on the album are such guest artists as E-40, Remo, John Michael Rouchell, Devon Baldwin, and others. Included on These Things Happen are the singles "Been On," "Lotta That," "Almost Famous," and more.
