Kamaiyah – For My Dawg | Music Video

Kamaiyah 07.05.2016ANDREW


Kamaiyah’s “For My Dawg” is dedicated to Cocaine James, who passed away in April after a battle with cancer, and Fred, who was murdered in Oakland last summer.


The track opens with tinkling piano, and the vocals are grave and honest. Synthesiser then lifts it, if even only slightly. It is a hard street anthem, mixed with longing and plenty of emotion.


The Evan Croker-directed video combines footage of the aforementioned James and Fred that Kamaiyah had from before their deaths. It features candlelit scenes of Kamaiyah and the Hyphy Hoochies crew paying dues on the steps of James’ house.

I've always wanted to be involved in the media since before I even left school; to write for a living.I feel most eloquent when mapping out my thoughts on paper or on a computer screen.I studied media at college for two years, and went straight into third year at university studying publishing with journalism.After a range of work experience, I did a magazine journalism course in Bournemouth, a long way away from my hometown of Aberdeen, achieving my NCTJ qualifications.Now I spend my time gladly writing about music.
