Iamsu!, founder of Bay Area collective the HBK Gang, is back with his first project since last year’s Sincerely Yours, his studio debut. The “Eyes On Me” mixtape is short but sweet, packed with talent like DJ Mustard, Tyga, P-Lo, and Jay Ant.
The release manages to sound fresh while still recalling Iamsu!’s Bay Area forefathers—he mentions the Diligentz, the Pack, and Too $hort as some of the influences for the mixtape. One of the stand-out tracks “Bandz,” produced by P-Lo and Jay Ant, is a stripped-down, utterly flaming tune–it almost sounds like the 2015 sequel to “Tipsy.”
