Kamaiyah – A Good Night In The Ghetto (Mixtape)

blame it on Meka March 16, 2016

I’ve lived in New York for almost seven years now, with three spent in Harlem and the rest in Brooklyn. However, I spent most of my life in Los Angeles; to this day, my upbringing — down to an “accent” I never knew I had until I moved East — permeates greatly throughout my very existence. Because of this, I am more susceptible to listening to music from West Coast-reared musicians than ever before (ironically, it took leaving my proverbial block to appreciate it more).

Such is the case with Oakland native Kamaiyah. The 21-year-old rapper released her formal introduction, A Good Night In The Ghetto, which is so West Coast it should come packaged with an order of animal fries from In-N-Out. She keeps things primarily local, collaborating with her Big Money Gang crew as well as Trackademicks, 1-O.A.K, P-Lo, and YG. It’s ideal for the warming weather, and even more ideal if you prefer your music with a splash of hyphy and vintage-inspired G-Funk. Stream the 16-track project below.

As a bonus, here is Kamaiyah’s video for “How Does It Feel.”
