Kamaiyah made one of the best rap albums of the 2010s with her 2016 debut mixtape A Good Night in the Ghetto, which offered up a fresh, reinvigorated take on the G-Funk era and (along with her collaborator YG) helped kick off a G-Funk revival that we're still feeling the effects of today. Kamaiyah never became the huge star she seemed like she'd be (she signed to and departed from Interscope without ever releasing a proper album) but she's still damn good at what she does. Got It Made is cut from a very similar cloth as A Good Night in the Ghetto, which does mean you've pretty much heard Kamaiyah do all this stuff before, but if it ain't broke don't fix it and in Kamaiyah's case, it definitely ain't broke.

Kamaiyah has announced a tour in support of Got It Made, which we named one of the best rap albums of February (review quoted above). It's the Oakland rapper's first-ever headlining tour, and it kicks off in Austin this April before hitting the Midwest and both coasts.

There's a NYC show happening April 25 at Chelsea Music Hall. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (3/13) at 10 AM. All dates are listed below.
