HBK leader IAMSU! sets the tone for his 2017 with a new project, Boss Up. The 8-track mixtape contains features YMTK, Mansa, Show Banga, and Bay Area legend E-40 on the previously released title track. The title fits the vibe of this mixtape so perfectly, as we get a taste of Suzy 10-Speed in his most bossy mode yet on tracks like “Confident,” and “Stop Signs.” Whether it’s a party or a time to grind, we think this soundtrack fits into our routine effortlessly, with its breezy and melodic west coast production.
