It wasn't until I was in third grade that I departed from a daily routine of wearing sweatpants. Kosha Dillz latest music video, the second from his EP Gina & The Garage Sale, has me waxing nostalgic for the days when pants with buttons weren't even part of my wardrobe yet. The Jersey based MC most likely will be getting kids amped to rock sweatpants as a fashion statement today as he performs with Yo Gabba Gabba in New Brunswick, NJ at two shows this afternoon/evening.
What makes that so cool is, not only did he just drop the premier of his music video for "Sweatpants" on Consequence of Sound last night (see below), but rappers also are not the norm for the touring Yo Gabba Gabba show. With acts like Pretty Lights, Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. and Leslie Hall normally joining the tour - it is refreshing to see an MC that is always on his grind get his due. Sharing a stage with Biz Markie, Brobee, Muno, Plex and DJ Lance will most likely be not only cool for him - but a career accomplishment.
