Iamsu!'s KILT mixtape made the leap from one of the year's most slept-on rap releases to a top ranking in SPIN's Best Hip-Hip Albums of 2012. But the E-40 collaborator and prolific Bay Area resident sneaked out another before 2013 dawned: $uzy 6 $peed, which was every bit the equal of that other stunner. To wit, take in the video above, premiered by Stereogum, which makes the case for this mellow party-starter inclusion in our Real Hottest MCs in the Game list. Over a quintessentially Oakland mix of trebly bleeps and trunk-rattling bass, Iamsu! confidently espouses the life of a hustler: "Go ahead, get your money, don't stop." Meanwhile, the clip is populated by stylish stoners, giggling girls, and one big-bellied bro who's got no qualms with letting it all hang out. Sage the Gemini produces, while the up-and-coming rapper lords over the ratchet vibes in the most laid-back manner possible.
