Today, Iamsu! is excited to release his new mixtape, KILT 2. Largely produced by Iamsu! and his production crew, The Invasion, and is available for free download exclusively via LiveMixtapes.


KILT 2 comes on the heels of some very exciting recent months for Iamsu!. After a 2012 that saw him named as one of SPIN’s Best New Artists and win accolades for his $uzy 6 $peed mixtape, 2013 opened with a bang, releasing his Million Dollar Afro mixtape, a collaborative effort with Compton rapper Problem. Iamsu! performed at The FADER Fort at SXSW and embarked on his first ever headline tour, a 12-date run, alongside Problem, that capped off with a VICE-sponsored performance in New York City. He’s produced and collaborated with Wiz Khalifa; his breakout solo cut, “Mobbin,” is a mainstay on MTV Jams; he just recently released a video for the Juvenile-featuring single “100 Grand.”


Despite all of those accomplishments, Iamsu!, only 23-years-old, sees KILT 2 as his biggest accomplishment yet – which is exactly why he chose to name it after his original breakout tape, KILT, released in May 2012. Sequels are always tricky, but for Su, naming his latest mixtape KILT 2 felt natural, fitting even. “KILT was such an impactful mixtape in my career,” explains Iamsu!, noting that he’d already selected the title before he began recording any of the music. “Recent months in my life, in my career, have been impactful as well, so to name this tape KILT 2 felt right.”


Like KILT a year ago, KILT 2 is a statement tape for Iamsu!. “On this tape, I paid extra attention to detail,” he notes. “Every song captures a moment and a distinct feeling, so the quality is on another level.” Part of that process for Su came on the production side, with the rapper/producer incorporating live instrumentation. “KILT 2 is more musical than anything I’ve done before,” explains Iamsu!. “I played instruments on here; I experimented with vocoder – I composed most of the music and worked with a lot of talented musicians. I tried a lot of new sounds.”
