Hot! Iamsu! Stops by HotNewHipHop to Deliver a Freestyle


The Cali rapper knows how to lyrically ride a beat.

Richmond, California’s Iamsu!–member of The HBK Gang alongside Sage the Gemini, Kehlani, and others–has a penchant for lacing well-calibrated lyrics over west side-infused production–all facilitated by his dynamic flows. But the true test of any genuine lyricists’ lexical command is what transpires when they step out of the professional recording booth into a raw acoustic environment.

Yesterday, October 2nd, the 28-year-old rapper graced HotNewHipHop’s Freestyle Session series with a succinct freestyle–the publication’s 40th episode. Riding an upbeat production that sounds similar to his working with The HBK Gang, mainly predicated on the consonance between dancy hi-hats and jazzy piano notes, Iamsu! delivers a playful excerpt of his abilities.
