Critical Praise for Iamsu!:

Best New Artist – SPIN 

“[Iamsu!] is making some of the catchiest and most pleasant music in all of rap right now.” – Stereogum

“Iamsu!’s confident and fluid rhymes shine.” – Complex

Gen F featured artist – “Iamsu! asserts himself as a hip-hop tour de force with fluid, confident rhymes.” – The FADER

It truly seems that Iamsu! is incapable of making a bad song.” – VICE

The Video:

Last week, Iamsu! and Problem wrapped their Million Dollar Afro Tour with a show, sponsored by VICE’s Noisey Music Rap Party series, at Santos Party House. The 12-date tour served as Iamsu!’s first headline run, a 12-city string of dates marked by sold out shows, rowdy performances, and special guests, including Wiz Khalifa, who surprised fans in Los Angeles by showing up to perform “Bout Me,” his collaboration with Iamsu! and Problem, and Juvenile, who came out as a special guest in San Francisco. Previously, Iamsu! and Juvenile had collaborated on the track “100 Grand,” from Su!’s $uzy 6 $peed mixtape, and today, Iamsu! is releasing a video for the single, premiered by TrillHD.

“100 Grand,” directed by Giovanni Hidalgo, was shot at the sold out show in San Francisco during Iamsu! and Problem’s Million Dollar Afro Tour. It serves as the final video from $uzy 6 $peed as Iamsu! gets ready to release his new mixtape, KILT 2, and for Su!, the collaboration with Juvenile serves as the perfect last look from $uzy 6 $peed. “This video shows where I’m at right now, how I’m transitioning as an artist,” explains Iamsu!, adding that the song has “a vintage Cash Money feel. The track is just pure energy, and Juvenile helped us recapture that sound.”

To accompany the video, Iamsu!, in conjuction with LiveMixtapes, is also unveiling the cover artwork and release date for KILT 2, a tape, being released June 6th,  that serves as the follow-up to Iamsu!’s original breakout mixtape, KILT. For Iamsu!, KILT 2 is another opportunity to prove himself both as not only a rising hitmaker but as an artist. “With KILT 2,” he says, “I just want to showcase my depth and versatility.”

Iamsu! Background:

2012 was nothing short of a breakout year for Iamsu!. The 22-year-old popped up with a triple-threat performance on LoveRance’s “UP!,” which Su! produced, penned the hook for, and guested on with a scene-stealing verse. The song peaked at number one on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop chart, and in the midst of that success, Su! again delivered a fan-favorite verse on a big-time radio single, this time with E-40’s”Function.” Su! followed that success with a solo mixtape, KILT, and the critical acclaim came in droves, as the project was hailed by SPIN as their Rap Release Of The Week, with the outlet also naming Su! as one of their 5 Best New Artists for June ’12. Su!’s been plenty busy since – a west coast tour; a collaborative mixtape with Jay Ant; a standout collaboration with Wiz Khalifa“Bout Me,” that appeared on Khalifa’s Cabin Fever 2 and will also show up on his sophomore album, O.N.I.F.C. Now, Iamsu! is prepping a new mixtape, $uzy 6 $peed, which was released exclusively through LiveMixtapes on November 10th. The tape is presented by Bay Area streetwear company Pink Dolphin, which will release an exclusive t-shirt and hoody for the tape. Iamsu! is back to work already in 2013, with the recent release of Million Dollar Afro, a collaborative mixtape with Compton rapper Problem, and plenty more solo music planned for the coming months.
