HBK have been quietly killing it over the last few years, always operating just under the radar, but always consistent in their hooky west coast jams.
Los Angeles native Kay Cola makes a return to HNHH today with a new collaboration "Have 2 Call" featuring Bay Area's own Iamsu! and Kool John. We haven't heard from her since her French Montana collab back in December, "Not OK."
DJ Base shares his West XL compilation mixtape, featuring songs from of the best known artists coming out of the west coast. Visual artist Kyro Ink puts a twist on XXL's Freshman Class cover for the tape's cover art.
Revisiting his latest project Sincerely Yours, HBK Gang’s Iamsu! decides to come through and share the official video for “Back On Your Mind” featuring Skipper and Kool John.
Who doesn't love showing love to the area that helped mold them? Every hip hop artist from JAY Z to 2Pac has recorded an ode to their beloved hometowns or the places that have adopted them.
Kool John's new video for "Wobble" opens with a clip of a woman deciding what to wear to one of his "Shmop" parties. We soon follow her (ass) out of the room and into John's ride, where she immediately begins twerking like her life depends on it.
Oakland's C-Money is an artist we have yet to feature on HNHH, but today we're pleased to premiere his new EP. Entitled Just 4 You, the eight track project will boast guest spots from Derek King, Kool John, Chonkie F, Mackin', Too Short and IAMSU!
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'.
G-Eazy won't even be concluding his current "From The Bay To The Universe" tour for another nine days, but he's already sold over 50,000 tickets. With that in mind, you can't blame him for deciding to extend the tour with a second leg.
HBK Underdog Kool John released one of the summer's best mixtapes with Shmop City. He may not have the presence of fellow crew members Sage The Gemini and Iamsu!, but off the strength of the tape alone, he should be on a level playing field soon enough.
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 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
Iamsu's HBK gang, consisting of P-Lo, Kool John, Jay Ant and Skipper, unite for a new visual from their collaborative effort, "Gang Forever." Dave Camarena is behind a fish-eye lense for this one, as the Bay area rappers spit, light cash on fire, smoke and mor
After the success of "Gas Pedal" and "Red Nose", Sage The Gemini releases the new visual for his latest single "College Drop", featuring his good buddy from HBK Kool John. Thoughts?Watch Sage the Gemini Feat.
Iamsu!'s remix of "100 Grand" gets the visual treatment with Juvenile, Problem and Kool John. "KILT 2" on the way. How did Juvenile, Problem, , Kool John do on this video? Thoughts? Peep the new visual for Iamsu!'s Iamsu! "Rep That Gang" Video.
Listen to Closet Freak, the new track by D. Willz featuring Kool John & Starting Six which was dropped on Saturday, December 29th, 2012. D. Willz's odds keep getting better with each new leak, and Closet Freak will undoubtedly improve his chances of winning.
