Kamaiyah Drops ‘Before I Wake’ Mixtape [STREAM]


Oakland’s Kamaiyah introduced herself properly last year when she dropped her ‘A Good Night in the Ghetto’ debut project. The 4Hunnid signee follows that up with her 10-track ‘Before I Wake’ mixtape.

Containing no features, the surprise project brings that prototypical West Coast, funky, Bay Area-heavy sound. Executive production on the mixtape is handled by Link+Up.

Kamaiyah shared her journey in creating ‘Before I Wake’ on her Instagram, explaining her struggles, losing her brother to cancer, losing her way, and opting to make this project independent from her label, Interscope.

“This past year has been extremely hard for me,” she grieved. “I lost my brother to cancer and went through extreme depression. Creatively I felt trapped with my project being held up due to samples. I lost my way and decided to take initiative by recording and putting together music for my fans all on my own because I felt it was time. Thank you for everyone who has been patient, this is only the beginning.”
