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!] is very easy to like, and…he flashes an intensity to match.” – Pitchfork

“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 Mixtape:

Today, Iamsu! is excited to release his new mixtape, KILT 2. Largely produced by Iamsu! and his production crew, The Invasion, and is available for free download exclusively via LiveMixtapes.

KILT 2 comes on the heels of some very exciting recent months for Iamsu!. After a 2012 that saw him named as one of SPIN‘s Best New Artists and win accolades for his $uzy 6 $peed mixtape, 2013 opened with a bang, releasing his Million Dollar Afro mixtape, a collaborative effort with Compton rapper Problem. Iamsu! performed at The FADER Fort at SXSW and embarked on his first ever headline tour, a 12-date run, alongside Problem, that capped off with a VICE-sponsored performance in New York City. He’s produced and collaborated with Wiz Khalifa; his breakout solo cut, “Mobbin,” is a mainstay on MTV Jams; he just recently released a video for the Juvenile-featuring single “100 Grand.”

Despite all of those accomplishments, Iamsu!, only 23-years-old, sees KILT 2 as his biggest accomplishment yet – which is exactly why he chose to name it after his original breakout tape, KILT, released in May 2012. Sequels are always tricky, but for Su, naming his latest mixtape KILT 2 felt natural, fitting even. “KILT was such an impactful mixtape in my career,” explains Iamsu!, noting that he’d already selected the title before he began recording any of the music. “Recent months in my life, in my career, have been impactful as well, so to name this tape KILT 2 felt right.”

Like KILT a year ago, KILT 2 is a statement tape for Iamsu!. “On this tape, I paid extra attention to detail,” he notes. “Every song captures a moment and a distinct feeling, so the quality is on another level.” Part of that process for Su came on the production side, with the rapper/producer incorporating live instrumentation. “KILT 2 is more musical than anything I’ve done before,” explains Iamsu!. “I played instruments on here; I experimented with vocoder – I composed most of the music and worked with a lot of talented musicians. I tried a lot of new sounds.”

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. The two West Coast rappers co-headlined their own Million Dollar Afro Tour to support the mixtape, and most recently Iamsu! has announced his new solo mixtape, KILT 2, in conjunction with LiveMixtapes, which is available now.
