Spotlight: Kamaiyah drops ‘A Good Night In The Ghetto’

Oakland based rapper and “first lady of the Big Money Gang” Kamaiyah recently dropped her debut mixtape, A Good Night in the Ghetto.

The 16-track release is gold from start to finish, as the 20-year-old MC delivers her lines with the charismatic, effortless confidence of a pro. She has referred to herself as a “child of the 90s,” and the mixtape accordingly features affectionate throwbacks to 90s hip hop/G-funk. Pitchfork’s Jayson Greene said it best in his glowing review of the album (8.2!): “Good Night in the Ghetto‘s production is the aural equivalent of watching Too $hort and TLC videos half-asleep through one of Hype Williams’ custom ’90s fish-eye lenses—a blur of reference points from across hip-hop’s glitziest decade.” Tracks like “Freaky Freaks” and “Niggas” most notably evoke old-school West Coast rap.

All in all, A Good Night In The Ghetto soaks the listener in positive vibes and infectiously upbeat party tracks just in time for the warmer months. 2016 just may be Kamaiyah’s time.
