In March of last year, Oakland rapper Kamaiyah dropped one of the best projects of 2016 with A Good Night in the GhettoThat project helped her sign a deal with Interscope, and now she's back with "Build You Up," the first song off her upcoming project Don't Ever Get It Twisted, dropping later this year. Watch the video below.

The song, produced by Drew Banga, Trackademicks and 1-O.A.K., sounds like some straight up new jack swing, and the message of the song is more positive than anything else we've heard in a long time.
