Too Eazzyy

Too Eazzyy

Rap is supposedly a young man’s sport, but even by those standards, Lil Eazzyy shows remarkable poise and perspective for his age. Since he broke through with “Onna Come Up”—the irresistible song he dropped while he was still a high school senior—the Chicago native is using his hometown’s signature styles to grapple with immense trauma in a way that’s visceral and slyly fun. One of drill’s most interesting qualities is its marriage of street rap’s gothic stakes to hip-hop’s roots in dance music; Eazzyy’s third album in less than two years, Too Eazzyy, captures that careening energy and channels it in frequently surprising directions. Moving over beats that are taunting (“Don’t Talk Just Listen”) or somber (the Shoebox Baby-featuring “Hard Way”) with liquid ease, Eazzyy is also defiant about the grind it took to get here: “I had to work for it,” he raps on “Bussin.” “I wasn’t given no help.” Too Eazzyy quiets any doubts about whether Eazzyy has earned his place.
