Artist to Watch: Kamau

BY ANGELIE BENN

DMV's own KAMAU is 2016's best hidden gem, but not for long. Earlier this month, Kamau gained major buzz because of his unique collaboration with Sweater Beats to recreate Outkast's "Hey Ya." Shortly after, the rapper/singer/producer published his self-titled EP on Soundcloud, including covers of Adele's "Hometown Glory" and a second remix to Outlast's "Hey Ya." Even though Kamau clearly excels in making music, his creativity doesn't stop there. Continuing the visual story he built with videos for his tracks “JAMBO” and “JUSFAYU,” Kamau recently released his latest, GAIMS." 

It's clear that Kamau is only going up from here, so get on the wave while you can. Kamau will be joining Lion Babe on their tour, kicking off July 6 at Sixth and I.
