Kamaiyah Reflects on Her Come Up in New Video for “I’m On”
Fresh Queen of Oakland
Kamaiyah has had an incredible breakout year, from having her hit with YG “Why You Always Hatin’?” and claiming the summer with the track “How You Want It” – and she doesn’t seem to slow down the grind anytime soon. The Oakland rapper just dropped the visuals for her track “I’m On” off her debut project A Good Night in the Ghetto, mediating on her life and journey that has gotten her to her current status.
The video is redolent of the intro of The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, as Kamaiyah is hanging on a throne, chilling at the basketball court, and listening to records throughout the visual, giving us a glimpse of her come up growing up in the Bay following to make it in Los Angeles. Check out the video for “I’m On” below.
In an interview with XXL earlier this year, Kamaiyah elaborated on why she doesn’t promote drug usage in her music, going on to say,
“I feel like most music promotes doing drugs and genocide and I feel like this is the reason why we are dying at a rapid rate because there’s no one else promoting something positive, so I make music for the people who don’t want to be those type of individuals. For the people who just want to have a good time and go home and love their mom, father, kids or whatever it may be, that’s what it’s about.”
We’re looking forward to seeing what Kamaiyah will make out of 2017, as she is currently making waves with her music.
