Oakland rapper and local favorite Ezale has graced us with his first release since Drug Funnie, his 2013 debut mixtape.
The happy-go-lucky rapper joined the ranks of E-40 and Freddie Gibbs in the most recent installment of The Tonite Show with DJ Fresh, an Oakland producer with a long-standing reputation in the Bay Area hip-hop scene. Previously, Ezale gained clout with his breakout single, "Too High."
Ezale's latest album maintains much of the same excited, childlike energy present in his other work. "Day Ones," a previously released single, is an anthem for doing nothing — and sometimes everything — with your best homies.
"We Out Here," another standout track, has all of the bouncy energy of a live dance circle at a good party. Although a long-awaited release, The Tonite Show with Ezale proves worth the wait with its funky, fun feel-good vibes.
