Northern Cali king IAMSU has been doing his thing for a minute as an innovative producer/MC and lynchpin of the HBK Gang. He officially dropped into the Fool’s Gold orbit when he was featured on Nick Catchdubs’ “Bizness” single, which, conveniently enough, is featured on this new mix from another West Coast homie of ours! Salva put together a collection of IAMSU/HBK bangers in celebration of the upcoming Check Yo Ponytail show this Friday (10/18) at the Echoplex in LA featuring IAMSU, Sage The Gemini and more. Fellow FG fam 100s and Nick Hook pop up on the tracklist too… what are you waiting for?
