Almost exactly one year ago, Kamaiyah dropped her debut mixtape A Good Night in the Ghetto, which set car audio systems afire throughout the summer and introduced the world to one of hip-hop’s most promising new voices. Now, the Oakland rapper has announced the release of another tape for the warm months of 2017.
Kamaiyah’s Don’t Ever Get It Twisted is slated for release on April 21. Details about the mixtape are scarce, but Kamaiyah had previously teased a track featuring Snoop Dogg and YG and said it's one of two new tapes she's at work on. She also said that T-Boz of TLC made an appearance during her shoot for the album’s cover today, so we’re going to cross our fingers in the hopes that she’ll appear on the record as well.
Since the release of her acclaimed debut last year, Kamaiyah has signed a deal with Interscope Records and appeared on the smash YG track “Why You Always Hatin?” YG has since assumed something of a mentor role for the young rapper, as she joined him on the G-Eazy and Logic Endless Summer tour last year.
Kamaiyah has a couple of shows lined up in Southern California around the time her new tape drops. She’ll be performing as part of the stacked lineup for Young Turks in Palm Springs on April 13, as well as with Mura Masa at The Glass House in Pomona on April 17.
