When It's Dark Out
“In one year, I went from overlooked to overbooked.” The line from “Sad Boy” encapsulates G-Eazy’s mindset on When It’s Dark Out. He raps long and hard about the changing landscape (“One of Them” with Big Sean) and the spoils of success (“Order More,” the trap stomper “You Got Me”). But it’s late-night confessionals like “Nothing To Me,” “Me, Myself & I,” and “For This” that elevate G-Eazy from rap VIP to MVP. The album’s highlight, “Everything Will Be OK”—which finds him reminiscing and sending messages to the family and friends he left behind in his quest for immortality—is one of the most vulnerable, soul-baring tracks you’ll hear.
