Sage the Gemini and Iamsu
Max Bell HBK Gang
Better than... Complaining about the Dodgers.
Friday night saw the HBK Gang (Heartbreak Kids Gang) at the Echoplex. They're a crew originally based in the Richmond, California area known for songs like "Function," (which features HBK founder Iamsu), and "Red Nose," by Sage the Gemini, who's now based in L.A.
They're best described as the Bay analog to L.A.'s YG and his Pushaz Ink crew: a group of talented friends making music for the turn up with an edge missing on your typical radio playlist. HBK's performance at the Echoplex was, to the best of our knowledge, one of their first big shows in L.A.
