Back in April, fast-rising Oakland rapper Kamaiyah announced that her new album Don’t Ever Get It Twisted, was supposed to drop sometime this Spring but unfortunately that never happened due to some clearance issues. So while we continue to wait for a new release date, the XXL freshman decides to hold us over in the meantime by dropping off a new single & accompanying video today called “Build You Up,” which she’s been teasing all week long on social media.
Check out the 90s-inspired, Damien Sandoval-directed clip & let us know what you think. (Single available on iTunes)
Give me the microphone & check it
Should be no one neglected, should be no one disrespected
And if someones in your presence don’t accept
A queen is a queen of all things, respected by all means
Uplifted by all Kings na’ mean?
My dancers have on TLC shirts and cross colours clothing in the Build You Up video because TLC is one my biggest influences homage paid 🙏— ill yaya (@itskamaiyah) July 7, 2017
