Star complex has perplexed me until this time. Having achieved fame at the height of their career, celebrities tend to break away from the limelight and cry out privacy. Seriously?! The price of fame is so high that anyone who yearns for it should be all up for it whether or not he only wants appreciation for his music. It always courts attention, whether real or fake.
Must tell G-Eazy to accept that fact at face value for his hypocritical lyrics in “Me, Myself & I”. It’s natural for G-Eazy to take fame with a grain of salt, but would it be better to appreciate it as well? Anyways, this gritty pop-rap treads the razor-thin line between reality and “it’s just a song yknow”.
In all fairness, I was a little carried away there coz of G-Eazy’s rapping style that reminds me so much of Eminem when he started his career though Eazy is a little cleaner and wholesome despite the expletives. Add Bebe Rexha’s howling overtone in the chorus and you got yourself a hit:
“Oh, it’s just me, myself and I
Solo ride until I die
‘Cause I got me for life
Oh I don’t need a hand to hold
Even when the night is cold
I got that fire in my soul”
I’m not so much of a rap fan, but after listening to this three times today, the song deserves its spot on the billboard. It tries to be classy and worth mentioning in the same breath as Drake. Or is it just me, myself or I the only one thinking so? (InfectedEardrum)
