Iamsu!

Every month, NPR runs down a list of songs that have stayed on the minds and iPods of all everyone at the station. The  “10 Songs We Can’t Stop Playing” list is a blend of all genres and styles of music.

They always find a way to slide some hip-hop into their playlist gumbo. This time, the slot belongs to the Bay’s own, Iamsu!

The rapper and producer’s album, Sincerely Yours hit stores May 13th. His career has been supported mainly by fans of indie hip-hop, so it’s no shock that he’s a favorite among the NPR crowd. His song, “Back On Your Mind”, made the list.

Su, can be found among the likes of banjo playing Habib Koite and the soulful sounds of Thomas Dybdahl.
