Kamaiyah’s phone froze late Tuesday night. The Bay Area artist first teased that a new project was imminent with the unveiling of new cover art, followed shortly after by the drop of her new 10-track project Before I Wake. Understandably, word of new music from Kamaiyah was enough to send her notifications into a full-on frenzy.

“This past year has been extremely hard for me,” Kamaiyah wrote on Instagram when announcing the new tape, her first since last year’s A Good Night in the Ghetto. “I lost my brother to cancer and went through a extreme depression and 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.”

In a recent interview with GQ, Kamaiyah revealed she was working on putting out two featureless projects soon. The second one is entitled Woke and, like Before I Wake, is described as “conceptualized.” Kamaiyah’s decision to hit fans with back-to-back new projects is due to the delay of her debut studio album. “It was supposed to come out in March, I believe,” Kamaiyah said. “Now it’s November. So to make up for that deficit, I’m gonna put out more work.”
