  • What artist would you like to collaborate with the most?

  • What song are you most proud of?

  • What can we expect from your upcoming album?

  • Do you have a PS4?

  • Are you ever gonna come to St. Louis?

TheIndianRapper12 karma

Whatsgood Suzie, I met you at Sage the Gemini's video shoot for "College Drop". You were a chill ass dude and even took my mixtape, thanks for that. My question to you is, do you feel like you've made it or you're still on the come up? You always seem conflicted about your feelings regarding getting signed or keeping it independent with HBK and you still have this underdog image despite some mainstream success. Thanks for doing this AMA and I hope to see you at the Pink Dolphin meet and greet!

Heartbreaksuzy10 karma

I still feel like I'm on the come up, I still got a lot to do. See you on Saturday!

MrGirth12 karma

Do you have high hope for the youngblood?

Heartbreaksuzy10 karma

He just gave off a good vibe, I would always see him on bart when I was younger and he was always cool. We began to get to know each other and it was all love. I think he's the future.

RioVolv7 karma

Suzy, Your an icon in the Bay. Recently moved to the LA and put everyone I knew on that HBK Gang. Kilt was my anthem and got me through some good times. I admire your hustle, flow and mob mentality. Shoutout to y'all putting some new hype and soul in the Bay. One question what was your inspiration for Jennifer Aniston? P.S. Show some love in Oakland hit us with a show please!

Heartbreaksuzy8 karma

Jennifer Aniston was more like a freestyle, and I referenced her in a verse so I decided to name it that.

ggggideon7 karma

Will 'Sincerely Yours' be one of your "banger" albums, or will it be more laid back like KILT 2?

Also, whats your favorite verse of yours?

Heartbreaksuzy9 karma

It's a blend of both. My favorite verse is a on a song off of Sincerely Yours and it's called "Lifetime"

Techn9ne4life7 karma

hurlingheadlong5 karma

What was the thought process behind the music video for "Hipster Girls"?

Heartbreaksuzy20 karma

Just trying to capture the bay area youth culture and just how the type of girls I like operate. And also try to capture it in a way where it wasn't demeaning and it was just fun.

Ogrelicious5 karma

Thanks for the next level hip hop that you and HBK put out. How and when did you get tight with the Pink Dolphin crew?

Heartbreaksuzy5 karma

I met Cena through a friend of mine that's a video director and we just got real cool from there and just kept on building. We both kind of came up together, much love to the whole Pink Dolphin crew.

Ogrelicious2 karma

Was that a different video director than David Camarena? Because David makes some good shit for you guys.

Heartbreaksuzy6 karma


GOODIceCream4 karma

Yo $uzy! HUUUGE fan here.

First off, check out /r/hiphopheads. it's dope.

Second, don't stop what your doing man! I go to High School in the bay and you are a huge inspiration. Also it'd be dope if you added me on PSN, Cudder_Swirv. Your choice tho.

Also, HBK Gang is dope, you guys are a combination of hyphy and that early kanye sound rap, which are dope.

anyways, here's some questions, answer whatever!

1) Who can we expect as features on the album? Mostly HBK Gang, or non-local rappers too? Who's your favorite feature on the album? either E-40 or Problem would both be dope AF.

2) How did your mom feel hearing you on the radio on 'Gas Pedal' after hearing you on 'Who Booty'?

3) What's it like working with JB!?! Gonna go against Reddit popular opinion, his music is really dope.

4) Is it frustrating only featuring on singles that blow up? You've already been on 'Function', 'Up', 'Who Booty' and 'Gas Pedal' haha.

Just know the bay loves you bro. keep doing what you're doing, i'ma buy a copy of the album FOR SURE. thanks bro, huge fan.

Heartbreaksuzy5 karma

My favorite feature on the album is Kool John.

My Mom thinks its funny.

Justin Bieber is super talented.

No. Thanks for your support!

tailbonebruiser7074 karma

Hey Iamsu!, been a fan of you and HBK since you dropped Young California! I love every project you have dropped and can't wait for your debut album.

*Who are the members in your producing group The Invasion?

*Who was your biggest inspiration?

P.s. Shout out to Kuya Beats, Jay ant and P-Lo! love your beats

Heartbreaksuzy7 karma

Really appreciate all of the support!

Members of the Invasion are P-Lo, Kuya, Jay Ant, Chief, and myself.

My biggest inspiration would have to be Pharrell.

lurkinthad4 karma

I really fucked with the miseducation of Iamsu, real raw record there, good wordplay, production was ill. my question is; whats your favorite song off that album and why?

Heartbreaksuzy7 karma

My favorite record off Miseducation is "I'm Not You" its a Clipse beat and its just one of my favorite verse I really liked my delivery and style of beat.

Heartbreaksuzy6 karma

Thanks for listening! The collab is an in-store only item and I'm definitely gonna work with some more bay area OGs.

Hey suzy, I wanna congratulate on how far you came and staying as close to your brothers as you have along the way. What does it mean to you that P-Lo, Kool John, Skipper are all starting to get more recognition because a lot people thought you wouldn't make it big unless you decided to take your own path? Also will we see Dave steezy on the new album? Much love from the bay.

Heartbreaksuzy2 karma

It means everything and that's what I set out to do. The fact that its becoming a reality means the most to me.

You will def be seeing Dave Steezy on the new album!

So are you going to release another one single before #SincerelyYours drops?

And that's all. Also thank you for your videos, they're awesome. Don't stop go crazy Su. ;)

Heartbreaksuzy2 karma

MDA 2 definitely coming after the album, HBK crew mixtape coming after the album as well. Definitely more singles coming.

CaseyTheCreator1 karma

What's good, man? Thanks for doing this. My question is, what was up with the track "Send It Up" that was on Yeezus? When it first leaked you were listed as a feature with King Louie, but you weren't even on there. I also believe there was a tweet you sent out about it, but was deleted. Were you originally supposed to be? If so, what happened?

Heartbreaksuzy5 karma

It was just a twitter joke that went too far.

hellafressh1 karma

dasilentwombat1 karma

Welcome Su! I've been a fan since you released Kilt, and I've loved every mixtape since.

Over the summer you came to San Luis Obispo and preformed at SLO Brew, and Cal Poly hadn't started up yet so I couldn't come to the show. I was wondering if you were planning on coming back during the school year once you go on another tour.

Thanks man! Much love from SLO.

Heartbreaksuzy2 karma

We will for sure be back at SLO! Thanks for listening.
