EDITORS’ NOTES

A rapper/producer out of Richmond, Calif., IamSu is down with The Invasion crew and HBK Gang, and he first made waves with his work on LoveRance's Bay Area smash single "Up!" Since then, he's been increasingly busy, cranking out well-received mixtapes like KILT, Stoopid, Young California, and Su! The Right Thing. On Suzy 6 Speed, he flaunts his versatility and shows he can do more than just club-centric party music. Production-wise, it's got all the elements you'd expect and hope for: big '80s-inspired beats overloaded with twinkling keyboards, snaps and claps galore, gigantic bass kicks, and plenty of stuttering 808 snares. Lyrically, he mostly sticks with Bay Area neighborhood pride ("Welcome Back"), stacking that paper ("100 Grand"), and working smarter instead of harder ("Can't Hate U Can't Hate"). It's a nice mix of old and new, with slick lines and huge pop hooks for days (especially "Put on a Show"). Look for dude to break out of Cali and go national very soon.
