Show Banga and IAMSU! Get Hyphy in New Video for “How We Rock”
The Redwall Studio-directed clip features footage of Show Banga and IAMSU! turning up at a local show, by the Golden Gate bridge and in other Bay Area locations. Show Banga tells XXL how the visual came about, saying, "This was filmed at IAMSUMMER back in my hometown San Francisco. Playing a hometown show was crazy - we were 3 blocks from my neighborhood and it was dope seeing my name on bright lights outside The Warfield. I don't know too many artists who get to do that, and the show was sold out ... I really wanted to get that Bay, fun, hyphy vibe for the video. Something that everybody from all ages could enjoy."
"How We Rock" is the follow-up to Show Banga's video for "Showtime." At the time of release, Banga told XXL, “For my album, Showtime 2, I wanted a lot of energy but I also wanted something that people can fully feel, so that’s why I chose [‘Showtime’] to be the opening track. [Fans] can turn up to the rest of the songs, but this is something you can put on in the morning, right as you start they day, because it’s a hustler’s motivation song.” You can cop Showtime 2, which came out on Aug. 12, via iTunes now for $9.99.
In IAMSU!-related news, the 26-year-old Richmond, Calif. native dropped his latest album 6 Speed in August. The album features 10 tracks with most of the production handled by IAMSU! himself. Show Banga and Hella Rawh are the only guest features on the project. Showy appears on track No. 2, "Fly Guy." Prior to 6 Speed, IAMSU! dropped his Kilt 3 album back in March. On that body of work, the Heartbreak Gang frontman included 12 tracks with guest features from artists including Problem, Sage The Gemini and Kool John. You can watch "How We Rock" above.
