Oakland rising artist Kamaiyah has been putting on for the West Coast with her buzzing rap project A Good Night in the Ghetto. Now she allows viewers to get a more in depth perspective on her life with a new mini-documentary of the same name. Directed by Chris Simmons, the new 17-minute visual follows Kamaiyah on her rap journey and the hardships in East Oakland that have helped shaped her music.
One of the most memorable and touching moments during the film tackles Kamaiyah losing her friend James to cancer. Not only was he a key figure in her life, but following his passing she dedicated her song “For My Dawgs” to him. YG, Rae Sremmurd, DJ Mustard and Kehlani make cameos throughout the visual as well.
Recently, Kamaiyah was featured on YG’s single’s “Why You Always Hatin” along with Drake. Not only did she give the song to YG, but it led her to a deal with Interscope Records.
