Rockie Fresh Joining G-Eazy On 'These Things Happen' Tour


By Sowmya Krishnamurthy

The “James Dean of hip-hop" joins forces with Maybach Music Group. G-Eazy is enlisting Rockie Fresh as part of his upcoming "These Things Happen Tour," RapFix has exclusively learned. The MMG newcomer has been named as the tour's opening act along with Toronto rapper Tory Lanez and California native Kyle.

The Buzz On: G-Eazy

As a musical accompaniment to this tour announcement, G-Eazy recently unleashed a remix to "Been On" featuring Rockie and Tory Lanez.

The 40-date "These Things Happen Tour" kicks off February 21 in Dallas and continues with stops in New York City, Chicago, Atlanta, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Toronto.

G-Eazy is prepping to release a new album, the follow-up to 2012's Must Be Nice, called These Things Happen, this spring. The effort comes on the heels of a string of big wins for the Oakland rapper including opening up for Drake's "Light Dreams and Nightmares" tour in 2010 and jumping on Lil Wayne's "America’s Most Wanted Tour" in 2013.

Eazy spoke to Respect last year about his artistic goal of always bettering himself. "That’s the motto that I want to take after: never getting too comfortable in one spot. You want to keep pushing things forward and wanting to keep trying new things and keep getting better."
