Oakland Rapper Kamaiyah released her hyped debut mixtape, A Good Night in the Ghetto, back in March, and now she’s back with “How You Want It,” her first new track since the mixtape. Much like her first project, the song, produced by Cardo, includes plenty of sweeping synths and Kamaiyah’s smooth flow atop a bumping bass foundation.
“I wanted to make a soundtrack for the average 18-25 year old thriving, living and having a good time,” Kamaiyah said about her debut mixtape. “A Good Night in the Ghetto is a fun time with no drama and no one being hurt. That’s what I want to promote. l want to promote living but also make it known that it’s OK to have problems. It’s not what you go through it’s how you get through it. This is the soundtrack of how to get through it.”
