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 growing buzz is warranted and this is shaping up to be a big year for him.” – 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:

Today, Complex premiered the latest visual from Iamsu! for the track “Rep That Gang,” the first single leaked from his highly anticipated new mixtape KILT 2, available now via LiveMixtapes. Following numerous successes including collaborations with the likes of Juvenile and Wiz Khalifa, selling out several Million Dollar Afro Tour dates nationwide with Compton rapper Problem, and performing at The Fader Fort at SXSW and at a VICE-sponsored show in New York City, the new mixtape has been another boon to Iamsu!’s momentum, further raising the young rapper/producer’s profile and solidifying Iamsu! as one of rap’s most talented new voices.

The video, directed by HBKGADGET, finds Iamsu! and his crew set against a dessert background pontificating on brotherhood and loyalty, while declaring his arrival as an artist. KILT 2 features guest artists including Kool John, Ty Dolla $ign, Tank, and Keak Da Sneak, as well as live instruments and fresh production by Iamsu!, P-Lo, Tha Bizness, Trakademics, and more.

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.
