Ask anyone from California’s Bay Area who they’re rooting for, and they’ll undoubtedly reply IamSu!. A week in advance of releasing his debut album, Sincerely Yours, due in stores on May 13, and some days prior to the inevitable leak, the HBK Gang rapper decided to stream the project.
If you’ve been keeping an eye on the movements brewing on the West Coast, you’re undoubtedly familiar with the Bay Area’s HBK Gang and one of their early standouts, Sage The Gemini. Hip-Hop Wired caught up with the rising 20-year-old to discuss his two singles “Red Nose” and “Gas Pedal,” his new deal with Universal, and more.
There’s been an undeniable resurgence in west coast rap over the last year or so. But where the emphasis has been on Los Angeles, California’s Bay Area (particularly Richmond, CA) have a lot to offer Hip-Hop, too. With that, the Internets receive a new mixtape from HBK Gang called Gang Forever.
