For a rapper starting out in the game, the wisdom of an experienced player is worth its weight in gold. (OK, wisdom doesn’t actually have a weight—but you get what I’m saying.) Thus, aspiring emcees will want to pay close attention to IAMSU!‘s latest single, which finds him tutoring a Young Homie on the basics of the hustle. Over his own frenetic percussion and spacey synth squelches, the HBK Gang rapper and producer emphasizes the importance of staying relevant, choosing friends carefully and keeping your pockets on swole at all times. Bay Area neighbor Skipper provides guest bars. This edutaining promo cut isn’t part of a larger project, but more high-rolling street bangers can be found on SU!‘s $uzy 6 $peed mixtape, available online as of November 2012.
