The line between independent up and comers and established artists is very blurred in that it’s far from unusual to see both sides collaborate. That’s why it’s possible for a rapper like Iamsu! to connect with 50 Cent on “Show You.”

With some assistance from Jay Ant on the chorus, Su! and 50 get a few braggadocios lines off on a melodic instrumental that’s very true to the Bay Area sound. We assume that the HBK Gang rapper’s penmanship on Loverance’s “Up” — the G-Unit founder later rhymed on the remix — had a lot to do with them connecting this time around.

Iamsu! is readying his debut LP, Sincerely Yours, featuring guest appearances by 2 Chainz, Wiz Khalifa, Too $hort, E-40, Sage The Gemini, and more. The album hits stores on May 13.
