Iamsu!, the 24-year-old producer and rapper with a mop afro and playful laugh, enjoys the challenge of bridging two worlds. Known both for his grounded storytelling and command of West Coast party musics slapping palette, hes a thoughtful introvert and high-energy leader all in one. Along with his crew HBK Gang, hes offering listeners a new brand of positive, pro-individuality rap that might be mistaken for preachy if it werent so fun.

From HBKs humble mini-studio, Su has contributed to surprisingly wide-reaching songs, like Function, last Summers feel-goofy anthem with E-40, YG and Problem, Wiz Khalifas Bout Me and LoveRances Up, the spare sex ode Su produced and guest emceed on. Up shows Sus talent for writing straightforward, easy-to-lock-into hooks, but hes prouder of the detailed production and carefully arranged melodies on 2012s introspective Kilt tape, where he boasts about being trustworthy, staying independent (2 Milli) and making honest money (Mama I Made It). When I first started rapping, I tried to talk about hood shit and it was a flop, he says. I rap for people that wanna enjoy themselves and chill out. I make music for girls to get dressed to. Ultimately, it makes the most sense for me to be myself.

Sus four recent tapes have spawned approachable street anthems like Mobbin, and a 100 Grand remix with Juvenile, catching the attention of West Coast fans and national tastemakers alike. Stereogum named $uzy its Mixtape of the Week and SPIN ranked Su as one of this past Junes Best New Artists. He was nominated for XXLs 2013 Freshman List and profiled in The FADERs 2013 Spring Style issue. Currently putting together music for a Kilt sequel and taking meetings with major labels, he continues to generate new material, in the interest of delivering the best possible product to fans new and old. I dont focus on the things that Ive already done, I always think about whats next and how I can elevate myself, he says. I want to inspire people through that energy. I feel like I was put here to connect people.
