Kamaiyah Drops ‘Don’t Ever Get It Twisted’ Mixtape Cover
Kamiayah is making sure that her 2017 is just an impactful as her 2016, and the Oakland songwriter is ready to release a new project. After announcing her upcoming Don't Ever Get It Twisted mixtape on her birthday last month (March 13), the vocalist just unveiled the official cover art for her second project to come.
The California native posted the artwork to Twitter earlier today (April 20), which shows her sitting in a throne chair in between two golden lion statues. Kamaiyah also posted the inspiration behind the cover, which stems from a historic photo of activist and author Huey P. Newton, who is from Oakland, sitting in a peacock wicker chair.
The original photo was taken by Eldridge Cleaver in 1967. At the time, Cleaver made original posters, which he distributed to the Black Panther Party to sell. Based on the Interscope signee's own cover, we may get some more socially conscious music from Kamaiyah for this next project.
While the original release date for Don't Ever Get It Twisted was supposed to be April 21, it's unfortunately now been pushed back to May. In the meantime, fans can enjoy the dope cover art from the singer, and anticipate new music to come from Kamaiyah in the next few weeks.
Oh, and producer extraordinaire Cardo also let slip that he's got a project with Kamaiyah in the works as well. Plus, she's featured on Lil Yachty's debut album, dropping May 26. Ill Yaya fans are about to eat this year.
