The Game and collaborative single has debuted at No. 49 on the Billboard Hot 100, earning the Compton rapper his highest-charting song in almost 15 years. His last single to chart higher was “My Life” featuring Lil Wayne in 2008, appearing on his LAX album.
Produced by Hit-Boy, Mike Dean, DJ Premier, Cash Jones and Big Duke, “Eazy” samples Eazy-E’s 1988 song “Eazy-Duz-It” and was released on January 14. It was available as a Spotify exclusive for 24 hours before arriving on other streaming platforms.
Around the world, “Eazy” charted in the top 40 in countries such as Canada, the UK, New Zealand and Ireland.
The song received a ton of attention for Kanye West’s verse after threatening Kim Kardashian’s new boyfriend Pete Davidson, while alluding to Julia Fox.
“God saved me from that crash, just so I can beat Pete Davidson’s ass (who?)” Kanye raps. “And my new bitch bad/I know Illuminati mad.”
Davidson even reportedly hired extra security after the threat.
