Kamaiyah and YG Are ‘Bridging the Bay to L.A. Gap’ in ‘F— It Up’ Video
O-Town is in the house! Up-and-coming Oakland rhymer Kamaiyah tapped Bompton rapper YG for her latest video for “F--- It Up,” a G-funk-inspired track from her latest mixtape, A Good Night in the Ghetto.
Directed by Chris Simmons, the Bay Area gets a picturesque visual as Kamaiyah and YG roll through the O-Town's High Street neighborhood in a caravan of low riders and GMC trucks. “The "F--- It Up" video was about bridging the Bay to L.A. gap,” said Kamaiyah, who moved from Oakland to Los Angeles in the past year. “I wanted to bring the Town out in a positive way and to have fun. I think we were successfully able to convey the message.”
In addition to YG, the voice of Shay Diddy of local radio station KMEL is heard in the clip. At the end of the video, Kamaiyah's childhood road dawgs the Big Money Gang Crew get hyphy in the parking lot.
Overall, the video is a celebration of 'hoods worldwide. Watch it above.
