Its no mystery that I'm a fan of Kosha Dillz - he is a white, jewish MC that can spit. He is like everything I wanted to be when I was 13 years old but never became (my rap career ended with a brief stint as an MC in the group Dopamine n' Potassium; we only performed in Ann Arbor, MI).
You can see the better of the two of us take the stage at Key Club tonight (buy tickets here). Kosha, from New Jersey, will be headlining the Sean Healy Presents night at the Sunset venue - showcasing his east coast talents amongst a plethora of West coast emcees, including Foci.
If you're a fan of real hip-hop - a Kosha Dillz performance is where you should be. He is quintessential real hip-hop - multiple incarcerations, war stories, trials and tribulations and persevering through it all because he was hungry to rap and had to rap because he was hungry. Now, he's not going hungry being a rapper - but his star is still rising and he is the sort of tenured rapper still looking for their big break.
With a character in NBA 2K11, a Yacht vs. Kosha Dillz mixtape, Freestyle vs. Written with C-Rayz Walz, and the Beverly Dillz full length album, produced by Belief, that spawned at least 2 MTV music videos - Kosha Dillz pot is damn near ready to boil over with blow up potential. It doesn't hurt that he's out here shooting scenes for his music video "L.A. Ish" - the third potential MTV video from Dillz, as well as working on tracks and other content for his forthcoming full length tentatively titled "Garage Sale."
Come to the Key Club and help fuel this jewish pickle's artistry - you may even end up in that content or "L.A. Ish" - depending on how you act. I want to make a cameo in it, so you'll find me there. If you buy a ticket and come give a SUPERGOOD shout out when you're there - I'll do my best to make sure you're in some footage too.
