Earlier this year, FADER spent time in the Bay with Iamsu! and his tight-knit squad of friends and collaborators, the ever-expanding HBK Gang, tracing their communal journey from a diverse alliance of nerdy weirdos to one of the West coast’s most influential units. The squad’s stakes have since been raised: in March, Sage the Gemini released HBK’s first official album, Remember Me, and today, Su shares the full stream of his studio debut, Sincerely Yours, in advance of its release next week. The album’s executive produced by Su himself, and unsurprisingly, its guest spots for the most part stick close to home, with appearances from HBK affiliates Kool John, Skipper, P-Lo, and Sage, along with Bay heroes Too $hort and E-40; 2 Chainz, Wiz Khalifa, Berner, and Dizzy Wright also feature. It’s an album for long, aimless drives in a packed car and stoned afternoons fading into turnt-up evenings—above all else, it feels like an album best experienced with friends. Stream it below, or pre-order on iTunes; it’s officially in stores May 13.
