Kamaiyah has just unleashed the visuals for her Got It Made track "Pressure."
The Stripmall directed video features the Oakland rapper stepping through alleys and bullet-hole riddled warehouses as she proclaims that nobody can tell her about herself, because she knows herself best.
"I wrote 'Pressure' during a moment when I was under a lot of it," Kamaiyah said of making the track. "Instead of me succumbing to the things that were trying to break me I turned to what always saves me in my time of need music. When people listen to 'Pressure' I want them to feel like I felt when I wrote it, and that is unbreakable. Our source of energy and power comes from within, through pressure you can make it through whatever with self-love.”
Prior to dropping the video for "Pressure," Kamaiyah released her Black-centric track "Black Excellence" this past weekend in celebration of Juneteenth.
It's hard to believe the Kamaiyah's well-rounded and hard-hitting mixtape Got It Made released all the way back in February. When it was being released, Kamaiyah revealed that Got It Made was 4 years in the making.
“After almost 4 years I present to you my project Got It Made,” Kamaiyah wrote in the announcement. “… the wait is over we going up and this mutha fucka slap.”
