Gerald, or more commonly known as G-Eazy, has been celebrating the success of his latest album, The Beautiful & Damned. On the road traveling from city to city, Eazy had landed in Boston, Massachusetts for his second to last show. Agganis Arena was jam-packed to capacity for a sold out performance by the Rap icon. G-Eazy presented, The Beautiful & Damned Tour.
Trippie Redd is an emerging artist who has grown to be one of the most popular new artists out. He’s well known for his affiliations with rappers like 6ix9ine, XXXtentacion, Rich Brian and more. Trippie Redd joined G-Eazy on tour and was the energy needed to set the tone. He came to the stage firing away with his most popular record, “Dark Knight Dummo,” that features Travis Scott. Other songs like “Polls 1469,” and “Love Scars” also played. Water throwing and crowd interaction had the fans immediate participation. After a solid performance, fans were even more excited for the headliner to play.
The lights cut off and the arena erupted in screams for the moment G-Eazy stepped up. Smoke covered the entire stage and he had approached the mic. Bright lights swept over the entire arena and one fan threw her bra on stage. Eazy picked it up and hung it on the mic stand like an ornament. The show was divided up in 3 different “acts.” Act 1: The Beautiful, began. The songs chosen for this segment of the show were soulful and personal. The songs played included platinum-selling single, “Me, Myself & I” and “Eazy.” Act 2: The Damned, consisted of crowd-hyping songs with dark melodies and heavy bass. It didn’t matter where your seat was in the arena, everybody was off their feet. G-Eazy had left the stage making fans believe the show was over before returning to bring the last segment of the show.
Act 3: Epilogue, was a short set of Eazy’s top current songs. First was “Him & I,” the romantic collaboration featuring girlfriend, Halsey. Lastly, “No Limit,” the late summer anthem featuring, A$AP Rocky and Cardi B shook the building. All the women in the arena recited Cardi’s verse as the show concluded. “I love you Boston,” Eazy yelled as he walked off stage and fans hit the exit signs. It was my first time seeing G-Eazy and won’t be my last. I’m sure many others feel the same.
