Introduced to most of us via her dope Cloud 19 tape last summer, Bay Area native Kehlani has kept her grind strong since then, now gearing up to release a follow-up on April 28th.
With her Cloud 19 mixtape, Oakland's Kehlani turned a lot of heads last year. The singer's now affiliated with Iamsu!'s HBK Gang crew, and starting her own "Tsunami Mob" movement.
In just under two weeks, it'll be a year since HBK's Skipper dropped off his tape Wet 2, but apparently, he's not quite done dropping visuals for the project. Today, we get a video for "InThisBitch," which also features the crew's de facto leader, IAMSU!
It's almost been 11 months since HBK Skipper gave us his tape Wet 2, and today we get what'll probably be the last of the videos from the release. Also featured on "Cover Girl" is CJ, and the cut was produced by Kuya Beats of The Invasion.
In a Bay Area group as blunted as HBK Gang, it takes a lot to stand out as the "stoner one." Among a bunch of other worthy candidates, Kool John's always been located as that dude, with his wonky stylings standing out as just a tad weirder than his crewmates'.
Tristin Perry is so new that we don't know who he is, if he's a he, or where he's based (so please hit us up Tristin)!
HBK Gang are one of the tightest cliques in hip-hop, with co-signs being a relative rarity and cross-pollination between its members being anything but. Today, their de facto leader, Iamsu!, drops a video that acknowledges the dopeness of his supporting cast.
This summer, HBK Gang's Iamsu! has been touring around the country with Wiz Khalifa and Co. on the "Under The Influence" tour, and recently, we had a chance to catch up with the Sincerely Yours rapper backstage.
Sage The Gemini is one of the newcomers on Wiz Khalifa's annual "Under The Influence" tour, alongside some more seasoned rappers like Wiz himself and Jeezy.
The other week we ushered HBK Gang's Kool John onto the site with a cut from his upcoming project Shmop City, the unapologetic "Bitch I Look Good." Today we're taking that relationship one step further with the premiere of his latest Shmop City leak, an Iamsu
We're in midst of a major shift in hip-hop right now, where rappers are taking matters into their own hands. Major labels like Interscope, Def Jam, and Atlantic Records seem to be having less control over their artists.
We already got your familiar with most of the members in Iamsu!'s HBK Gang, thanks to our Crew Love feature on the rising rap gang. One such member we haven't seen or heard much from on HotNewHipHop yet is Kool John, however that'll change soon enough when he
It's been a minute since we've heard from Cali songstress Kay Cola, who turned up with Problem on her last track, December's steamy "I Want You." Keeping things in the same vein with a similarly-sexy song that features another student of the hyphy game, Kay Co
Sage the Gemini made his way to Powerhouse in L.A. this past weekend, and we were able to catch up with the rapper ever so briefly on the red carpet. Sage, who is a member of the HBK Gang led by Iamsu!, delivered his debut album Remember Me in March.
It only took one day for Iamsu!’s debut album, Sincerely Yours, to reach iTunes’ top album charts, a feat which is, quite frankly, surprising. Though the album is not a flop, it’s not a work of artistic genius either.
