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.

Beginning by talking about his selective food preferences, Suzy and our own Damon Campbell go on to discuss the Bay Area rapper’s beginnings under the name “Young Caesar” and with P-Lo in a group called the Go-Getters. As it turns out, he was inspired to rap after he heard Snoop Dogg rapping on 2Pac’s “2 Of Amerikaz Most Wanted” on the way to a theme park as a kid.

Ty Dolla $ign and Sage The Gemini both make cameos, and Iamsu! also explains how he ended up in Jay Z’s dressing room.
