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:

Iamsu! and director¬†HBKGADGET have teamed up once again to create a new visual for the latest track from Iamsu!’s¬†KILT 2 mixtape, “Father God,” which Rolling Stone premiered today.¬†The mixtape, released on June 6th, has been catching the attention of new fans and earned a review from Pitchfork which referred to him as “colorful, catchy” and a “burgeoning star”.

The second video released from KILT 2¬†shows the 23-year-old rapper reflecting on his success and delivering a prayerful hook throughout the track.¬†“Everybody has their perspective on religion in hip-hop, and lately there’s been a lot of talking down on it. So when it came time to write this song, I just felt like praying on the chorus,” he explains. “I believe there is a God and that I owe him a great deal. I’ve been blessed.” ¬†Taking control of both production and vocals, Iamsu! paints the clear contrast between his rough background and glossy foreground that has emerged as his career has grown.

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.¬† Iamsu! released mixtape¬†$uzy 6 $peed, which was released exclusively through¬†LiveMixtapes¬†on¬†November 10th.¬†The tape was presented by Bay Area streetwear company¬†Pink Dolphin, which released 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 released his new solo mixtape,¬†KILT 2,¬†in conjunction with LiveMixtapes, which is available now.
