The Bay Area has a fine reputation for breeding fresh independent rap talent. The latest to sprout from out of the Bay is IAmSu!, who built on the hype from his song-stealing turn on E-40’s “Function” to launch last year’s excellent Kilt and $uzy 6 $peed mixtapes. But who’s gonna follow in his footsteps? Hive asked the HBK Gang leader to pick five more upcoming Bay Area hip-hop artists to get hip to right now. Dig in:

1. Sage the Gemini

Sage The Gemini has the hottest song out now in the Bay Area, “Gas Pedal.” It has like four million YouTube views. He has his own dance for it and everything.
