A film about Northwest hip-hop from

The Lost Tapes

Federal Way rapper I Am Chamel dropped this raw five-song EP of gangster throwback rap exclusively on SoundCloud alongside the new UNITY clothing line. It’s her first effort since 2017’s widely-acclaimed No Gimmicks. Although the pandemic is not directly addressed, I Am Chamel fantasizes about someday being able to eat cheese in France and salad in Greece on the song “Tap In,” featuring DaKid. On “Prison Break,” she ruminates on the benefits and frustrations of being alone, adding the potent and relevant reminder that “the most oppressed on this planet is a Black woman, we create the solutions, and yet you steal from us.”
