Kosha Dillz is a man who knows no boundaries. Born Rami Matan Even-Esh to Israeli Parents, he led a life of crime and addiction after a life of sports and competition, only to return to his craft of hip hop as an artist who was proud to represent who he truly is. Best described as a mix of influences from the Beastie Boys to Matisyahu and Wu-Tang Clan, he can be compared to acts like Macklemore, Lil Dicky and Mac Miller with a hint of more culture and realism. His ability to intertwine with reggae and rock acts to hard core rap acts has earned him spots on the legendary Vans Warped Tour as well as his own solo headlining tours across America. He is best known for his uncanny freestyling ability and ability to rap in Spanish Hebrew English and even Yiddish. His most recent album What I do all Day and Pickle charted on 6 different Billboard charts in August of 2016. He has toured the world with Matisyahu and performed with the most current acts from Wiz Khalifa , Travis Scott, Lil Dicky, Anderson Paak and more.
In a moment for Knicks fans around the world, the beloved yet cursed team of NYC picked up a 3-1 record by demolishing a Philadelphia 76ers team that they didn't beat for 4 years. But that wasn't the only news. Celebrity attendees like Fat Joe and Trey Songz were courtside with legends like Spike Lee and DJ Premier, but the real magic happened outside when NYC local rapper Kosha Dillz was rapping in the rain after the game.
In an out of nowhere move, Fat Joe ran up on Kosha Dillz, tossed cash at him and grabbed the mic to begin rapping a portion of his famous verse off the late Big L's collaboration "Enemy" in the pouring Nor'Easter rain.
Timing couldn't be better for the local Brooklyn artist Kosha Dillz. His latest music video, Is It Me, produced by Sad Pony (Nicki Minaj, David Bowie, Yves Tumor) and off his latest album Nobody Cares Except You dropped today. The music video features Kosha Dillz and all his cohorts from viral sensation Spidercuz to fellow Orthodox Jews and all of Kosha's NYC identities in red, green and blue tuxedos, as well as his Moses with the Bars fit which became minted in the scene via Sidetalk NYC and Whatisnewyork. He raps way more seriously about the faults of life and self blame while continuing the endless grind.
Lyrics: Insane again for fame again and no one knows your name again and maybe then if you do someone will be like you and start hating it. Hocus pocus keep the focus, I'm too dope to be a dope head, two movies out and no one knows this, all I do is keep it one hootie and the blowfish. That's how much of a star I am.
"Is it me" promises to be an anthem for all the rappers and hard workers that you think you may heard of. Now you have.
