There are certain artists where you could just tell where they’re from just by listening to their music. Bay Area's IAMSU! is definitely one of those artists. With features from Wiz Khalifa to getting his video directed by Kreayshawn, his crew Heart Break Gang is showing great potential. With uplifting production on songs like “On My Mind” and a heavy flow on songs like “Two Eleven”, it’s about time that rapper and producer IAMSU! gets noticed. After listening to “5th Wheel” with Rossi, you’ll see exactly what I’m talking about.
This summer track just came up for download from The Freshmen, a three member group out of the U.S. Bay Area. In this Mike Ho short, THX (a fly producer who's worked with Busta, Snoop and Clipse) wakes up in disbelief to a frisky mer-lady on the beach then rides a pimped out tricycle over to a pay phone (who uses a pay phone these days any way?) to call up his buddies A Wolf and Kristo. THX is all about sharing the wealth. Ca-li-foooorrrniaaaaaaa. "Get up. We're goin' to the beach." Then that little flute creeps in and right off the bat we get a feel good chorus that kicks in seamlessly. Less than 15 seconds into the track, it's already obvious this producer is actually no freshman at all. Hot! Download: The Freshmen- "Hello There"
