In 2016, Kamaiyah broke out of the Oakland scene with her debut mixtape A Good Night In The Ghetto. Following that, she teamed with YG and Drake on the former’s Still Brazy single “Why You Always Hatin?,” toured the planet and landed a deal with Interscope Records.
The freshly-crowned XXL Freshman also announced that she would be releasing her major label debut, Don’t Ever Get It Twisted, which she originally planned to release April 21st. While it was since pushed back, she returns with perhaps the first single from the project, “Build You Up.” Staying true to her Bay Area roots, the song samples Tony! Toni! Toné!‘s 1990 single “Feels Good” and the Ill Yaya keeps things local by living it up all throughout her neighborhood while delivering positive and uplifting messages.
