Kamaiyah – Playa In Me

The first thing you hear on Kamaiyah’s “Playa In Me” is the distinctly West Coast sound of the 808 cow bell. It’s a sound that’s heard throughout the Oakland rapper’s sophomore project Before I Wake, released without warning this week. From there, chunky synth riffs and climbing synth brass give the record the aspirational feel that much of Kamaiyah’s debut A Good Night In The Ghetto contained. While “How Does It Feel?” found the rapper dreaming of a better life, “Playa In Me,” which arrives after a XXL Freshman placement and some A-List collaborations, is a confident statement of success. “You can tell by the fur I wear / That I’m the coldest bitch alive,” she sings on the hook, one of the catchiest moments on the project. However, she’s still well aware that she deserves more, and that no man will be able to give it to her: “It doesn’t matter what you provide / Cause the playa in me it ain’t gon’ never be satisfied.”
