SD Freshmen ’14: IAMSU!

January 31st, 2014

Aye! IAMSU! was all over the place in 2013. From touring to multiple projects, his work ethic was an undeniable part of his success. He also adds in a new sound to the musically diverse state of California that’s been delivered by himself and the HBK Gang. He’s, in a way, a Bay Area version […]

Rappers just rap, artists know how to do more. It’s been proven that artists who are musically capable of expanding past just writing rhymes tend to have better careers in the long run. People like Kanye West and Big K.R.I.T. utilized their talents behind the production to elevate their own music over time, while someone […]

If Young Scooter told us he was pushing tonnes of that colombian white, it wouldn’t sound as epic as metric-tons does. That’s what his career has been about in the last year: making things sound as interesting as possible. This was achieved on his break-out single “Colombia,” off Street Lottery, but unfortunately didn’t continue through […]

SD Freshmen ’14: Mike Zombie

January 21st, 2014

Zombie on the track! Started from the bottom, now we here. One of the most memorable lines of the year delivered by one of rap’s most polarizing figures, Drake.

SD Freshmen ’14: Kevin Gates

January 13th, 2014

The streets deserved an artist who doesn’t just turn up or offer generic-like tales from his life. Kevin Gates is that guy to deliver that.

SD Freshmen ’14: Rapsody

January 8th, 2014

On Rapsody’s “A Song About Nothing,” she does absolutely that with a lot of sick rhyming that more or so is a great introduction. Mentions of watching Blu-Rays to what the pile of laundry in her home looks like paint her as just your average, relatable person. But she’s far from that. Rap is a […]

SD Freshmen ’14: Skeme

January 6th, 2014

Kendrick Lamar’s successful debut album set up for his 2013 to be full of rewards: worldwide tours, highly-publicized guest features, Grammy nominations, etc. He certainly doesn’t get to claim the title of best West Coast rapper of the year.
