Since early 2012, IAMSU!, one of the West Coast’s finest up and comers, hasn’t been letting his talents go to waste. After a memorable performance on E-40′s “Function,” along with Problem and YG, Su began to get notice and recognition. Later that year, Wiz Khalifa enlisted him and his production team, The Invasion, for Cabin Fever 2. Shortly after, capitalizing of course, $uzy 6 $peed was put out and spawned a couple good singles, like “100 Grand” and “Mobbin’.”
Besides videos, his 2012 run was over but his career is far from it. Displaying good chemistry, IAMSU! teamed up with Problem for Million Dollar Afro and a respective tour in April 2013. You’d think that’d slow him down a bit, but quite the contrary. In June, he gave us the follow-up to Kilt, several videos and most recently introduced his HBK Gang team with Gang Forever and a tour. Su and his crew are fun rappers that make music to enjoy in the clubs or whenever you feel like getting up and grooving.
Sitting down with Sermon’s Domain after his show in Seattle on August 26, IAMSU, with cameos from Jay R and P-Lo, discussed breaking his HBK Gang to his already vast fan base, if it was easy and future plans for the rest of the year. It was also revealed Million Dollar Afro 2 is in the works for early 2014, which he talks about what he wants to do differently this time. Finally, it was revealed that he’ll be on 2 Chainz’s B.O.A.T.s 2: Me Time album on “Livin’,” prod. by League Of Starz. Su tells us how he met 2 Chainz, ended up collaborating with him and if we can expect more from them in the future.
