Young West Coast Crew On Course To Dominate Rap Releases First Official Mixtape


12 August 2013 No Comment

If you haven’t yet heard of the HBK Gang, it’s time to get acquainted. While many are already familiar with the success, both critical and commercial, of de facto crew leader Iamsu!, HBK Gang is proving prolific across the board: There’s P-Lo (of The Invasion), whose production has been the driving force behind the West Coast’s current, radio-dominating sound, and who’s produced singles for Yo Gotti (“Act Right”), Wiz Khalifa (“‘Bout Me”), and more; Sage The Gemini has been equally prolific, with two singles, “Gas Pedal” and “Red Nose,” currently charting (and climbing) on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart, sitting at #46 and #59, respectively.

The rest of the crew is rounded out by Skip, Rossi, CJ Jay Ant, and Kool John, and today the group is celebrating the release of their collaborative mixtape, Gang Forever, out exclusively via LiveMixtapes. According to P-Lo, the new mixtape is a culmination of the crew’s growing success and vision, and the perfect launching pad for everything yet to come, from every member of the group: “This is what we would talk about every day – killing the game from every angle. As solo artists, as producers, but most importantly doing it together. And now it’s starting to happen, but this is only the beginning.”

Produced entirely by HBK Gang, of which many members also make of part of the production crew The Invasion, the tape is the result of packed studio sessions, with each member of the HBK Gang in attendance – and with so many talented artists in one room, competition was high. “Each one of us on the production side tried to one-up each other on the beats and whoever got in the booth laid verses,” explains Iamsu! of the tape’s collaborative process. “The anticipation for the entire HBK Gang has been building,” he continues, “and it’s time to finally bring the whole crew out. Gang Forever is the next step in reaching our goal of establishing HBK Gang as a powerhouse.”

West Coast fans of the mixtape should check out Iamsu!’s headlining tour, the HBK Forever Tour featuring Kool John and Jay Ant, presented by Pink Dolphin. The tour starts in Portland, OR on August 23rd and wraps up Reno, NV on September 22nd.
