His wide-eyed, James Dean look will carry him into the mainstream easily, but he's not exactly a squeaky clean guy.

G-Eazy's been releasing stuff since 2007, making his name outside the major label system. His new album, called These Things Happen, is dropping on June 23.

It's up for preorder now, though.

The slapping, summer beat is by slept-on talent Jay Ant. And Bay Area legend E-40 supports G-Eazy on a new version of "Far Alone" that's making the rounds on radio.

The album's next single is the shit-talking, compulsively replayable "I Mean It."

The song's already racked a million plays on Spotify.

The "I Mean It" video is debuting today on BuzzFeed. In it, G-Eazy plays an Anchorman-style news guy.

"If I ever said I'm never scared / Just know I mean it / If I ever said I fucked your bitch / Just know I mean it."

And charms the ladies.

And causes other dudes relationship trouble. Y'know, as he does.

"You really think she stay true? I doubt it / 'Cause I'm fucking your girlfriend, and there's nothing you can do about it."

Oy.
