While Kamaiyah‘s debut mixtape A Good Night In The Ghetto has had her career trajectory on the up-and-up, the Oakland rapper has been caught in between her professional success and a turbulent personal life.

After delays to her anticipated debut album, Kamaiyah returns today with a second mixtape Before I Wake, which she unveils alongside the following statement.

“This past year has been extremely hard for me. I lost my brother to cancer and went through extreme depression. Creatively I felt trapped with my project being held up due to samples. I lost my way and decided to take initiative by recording and putting together music for my fans all on my own because I felt it was time. Thank you for everyone who has been patient, this is only the beginning.”
