These Things Happen is the second studio album by American rapper G-Eazy. It was released on June 23, 2014, by RCA Records, serving as his first major label debut with these affiliated record labels BPG and RVG. It was released in North America, and released it on July 21, 2014, in the United Kingdom. Recording sessions took place from 2013 to 2014, with the production on the album that primarily were handled by Christoph Andersson, Jay Ant, blackbear, Jordan Evans and Matthew Burnett, among others. Following the release, he began to embark his These Things Happen Tour, for the support of this album.
Pitchfork contributor David Drake noted how the record was "moody and atmospheric" throughout its production and G-Eazy's musicianship takes cues from Kendrick Lamar ("Opportunity Cost", "Downtown Love"), Big Sean ("I Mean It") and Dom Kennedy ("Tumblr Girls"). He added that G-Eazy's lyricism works best when he explores inward in response to the world around him and displays glimpses of humanity that should be more prominent, saying "While one does get the feeling that there’s a better album somewhere inside of him, These Things Happen shows promise."
