The fluid, charlismatic Richmond, California rapper Iamsu! is almost certainly the most consistent artist working the spacious, club-friendly West Coast ratchet music sound. Last year, I gave Mixtape Of The Week to his $uzy 6 $peed. (I should’ve also given it to his earlier and superior Kilt tape, but I slept on that one. And if they hadn’t released it during a jam-packed week, I also would’ve given it to Million Dollar Afro, his collaborative tape with the similarly inclined L.A. rapper Problem.) Now, we’ve got Chris Simmons-directed the video for his propulsive and weirdly charming $uzy 6 $peed track “Don’t Stop,” in which Iamsu! and friends hang out with models in a studio somewhere. Below, watch the video and check out Iamsu!’s forthcoming tour dates with Problem.
