Bay Area’s rising star rapper Iamsu! let out a little secret recently if you were quick to pay attention. On his freestyle to YG’s “Who Do You Love,” Su rapped “Did the tour, got signed / Now the album coming.” Although there have been little details about his signing, Su confirms with XXL that his debut album will be called Sincerely Yours and it is dropping in April.
“I feel like this needs to be really autobiographical, just talking about my whole story,” he says. “It’s everything I can really stand behind. It’s just me to the core.”
The HBK Gang leader further discussed his crew as whole, commending the grind of members such as Kool John, Jay Ant, P-Lo and more. He says HBK Gang is in a “good space” in 2014 and hopes to provide the same opportunities for the rest of the gang to shine and breakout as household names. With Sage The Gemini exploding last year off of “Gas Pedal” and “Red Nose,” Su is setting his team up right.
“I feel like it could be anybody at any moment,” he says. “I feel like everybody is just as talented.”
But for now, the 24-year-old is focused on his album, where rap fans can expect the first single to feature Sage and will be coming out soon.
“I am on Sage’s a bunch of times, he’s gonna be on my CD a bunch of times. He’s actually going to be on the first song I put out for the album to start the campaign.”
