Oakland’s very own Kamaiyah takes it all the way back to the 70’s and turns the aesthetic all the way up as she comes through with a new video for her track “Slide” coming off her acclaimed 2017 mixtape Before I Wake.
The track is one full of attitude; a colorful, bouncy melodical rap dedicated to rivals who aren’t close to her level and people who are only there to hate and talk foul; their efforts won’t work.
The video is even more appealing. It’s 70’s feel fits perfectly with the disco-inspired production. Kamaiyah is sporting the most impressive afro as she and her people completely take over a classic roller rink session but not without flavoring it with a bit of Soul Train thrown in – shout out Don Cornelius. The groove of the track and the video are ones not to miss.
