Iamsu Honors His Faith in 'Father God' – Premiere
Rising Bay Area rapper isn't afraid to get a little religious

On the heels of his edgy, breakout track "Mobbin," Iamsu looks inward, giving respect to the Big Man on "Father God." Culled from the mixtape KILT 2, the song’s accompanying video finds the rising Bay Area star using the mic for more than just getting paid – or as he puts it, "steady stackin' his broccoli."

"Everybody has their perspective on religion in hip-hop, and lately there's been a lot of talking down on it. So when it came time to write this song, I just felt like praying on the chorus," Iamsu! tells Rolling Stone. "I believe there is a God and that I owe him a great deal. I've been blessed."

The 23-year-old Richmond, California, native has had quite an impressive run. He has collaborated twice with Wiz Khalifa – including Khalifa’s latest, "Bout Me" – and worked with E-40 and Juvenile. Iamsu also produced, co-wrote and featured on LoveRance's 2011 hit "UP!" which included 50 Cent on a remix that climbed into the Top 10 on Billboard's R&B/Hip-Hop chart.
