Kamaiyah – ‘Before I Wake’ Tape

The Queen of Oakland has done it again. On her own.

Ill Yaya served us earlier this month will “Successful,” the follow up track to her successful (pun intended) album drop, A GOOD NIGHT IN THE GHETTO. She also gave us a quick loosie, “Build You Up” which appeared on her SoundCloud a few months back. Now, she makes her grand & welcomed return to the spotlight with Before I Wake.

Kamaiyah’s record holds 10 tracks, no features (as if she needed any) and is a personal project. She shared this message with her release:

This past year has been extremely hard for me I lost my brother to cancer and went through a extreme depression and 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 without further or due this is Before I wake out now (link in bio) Executive produced by @linkuponproduction 🌹🌹🌹🌹#BeforeIWake #4hunnid 📀 🎥:@evancroker

Before I Wake is in full Kamaiyah fashion — hyphy as fuck, bossed up and raw. Shout out to Link+Up who executively produced it.

1. “Dope Bitch”
2. “The Wave”
3. “Playa in Me”
