Stream: Kamaiyah's surprise mixtape 'Before I Wake'

The nine-track effort is being self-released after feeling frustrated with another project's delays.

After dropping Before I Wake earlier this week on SoundCloud, Kamaiyah's surprise EP—a follow-up to her debut mixtape A Good Night in the Ghetto—is now available on streaming services.

The Oakland rapper explained on Instagram that the project is being self-released after feeling frustrated with the postponement of what could presumably be her Don't Ever Get It Twisted album. She wrote:

"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."

Led by single "Slide (Bet)," which is full of bass 808s and sax solos, listen to the nine-track effort below via Spotify, TIDAL, and Apple Music.
