Decided to break my own moratorium on posting white rappers when I heard this gem from the Bay Area’s own G-Eazy. Having made the move to this area recently, it seemed only natural to give some love to local artists. However, the real star of this track (sorry G) is New Orleans’ Dominique LaJeune, who provides the chorus.
The story is that G-Eazy saw her perform at some backyard show and asked her to work in the studio with him. The fruit of that labor is “Marilyn,” a surprisingly honest song about the trials and tribulations of a serious relationship. LaJeune’s pleasantly unique voice is the perfect pairing to G’s style. Big ups.
