Life moves mirror boss moves…

The moment KAMAIYAH fully embraced womanhood, she also confidently stepped into her role as one of rap’s boldest bosses. The platinum-certified Oakland-born rapper and GRND.WRK label founder quietly positioned herself as not only a force on the microphone, but also as a sharp businesswoman. After nearly 100 million streams, sold out shows everywhere, and widespread acclaim, she grew into a bright future ignited by the Got It Made mixtape and completely realized via her forthcoming 2020 full-length debut album—both on GRND.WRK/EMPIRE.

“I became a woman,” she affirms. “I’m not a child anymore. I know exactly what I want. I’m not afraid to ask for it. I’m not asking for acceptance though; I’m going to make you accept me. For so many years, I sacrificed my own happiness for others. I’ve reversed it. It’s okay to stop motherfuckers from walking all over you. I’m more business-oriented. I’m aiming to be a mogul with a legendary label. I want to be a boss to the fullest extent.”

In the end, KAMAIYAH doesn’t stop staying ten toes down. With the next album, touring, and more releases on the horizon for GRND.WRK, her life as a boss has only just begun…

“When you listen to me in 2020, I want you to understand me, understand I don’t take shit, and understand I’m a boss,” she leaves. “I’m leveling up. To be a boss means to empower others, so I empowered myself first. 20 years from now, I want motherfuckers to be like, ‘Wow, she was the first woman from the West Coast with her own label.’ It’s just the beginning though.”
