While “Vulnerable” might have been Tinashe’s don’t-stop-looking-at-me statement, 2014 single “2 On”, featuring Schoolboy Q and produced by DJ Mustard, was the commanding singer’s clear breakout moment. It probably isn’t a coincidence that Murlo let loose his “2 On” refix the same day as the original’s impossibly sexy music video hit the web and the London producer’s filled out, chugging riddim is a perfect addendum to the visual component. Without losing the luster of Mustard’s sultry bassline, Murlo brings a slightly sunnier disposition to “2 On”, making the easier-than-you-might think jump into soca territory.
After a groundbreaking 2013 that saw the release of the critically acclaimed and wildly popular Kilt 2 and Million Dollar Afro (in conjunction with Problem) tapes, Iamsu! is primed to take his place on the Bay Area rap mantle. Spitting in a quiet, slinky flow over YG & Drake’s (DJ Mustard-produced) “Who Do You Love”, Su sounds as confident as ever, bragging about a label contract and exorbitantly priced footwear. He sounds as confident as ever and if a major label album is in the cards, then he might just bring the whole gang to the party.
