Tonight is the night!

I am proud to announce something…cooler than ever before.

AWKWARD IN A GOOD WAY BILLBOARD ALBUM PREMIERE! ..And my EMINEM STORY.

Years ago I was asked by someone to enter this red bull battle at Bowery Ballroom. I went in it and actually lost, but I won in a small way. A person reporting on Eminem for his album release wrote about me in the first paragraph and quoted my line.. “Your name sounds like a character from the legend of zelda” Eminem’s come back story with him on the cover has me mentioned in the first paragraph!

read the Eminem article here.

November 5th, Eminem’s album will come out as well as my album via Murs 316.

Once again, Eminem covers BILLBOARD Magazine, and now my album premiers there.

Here is my album premiere
Here is Eminem’s new article

Pre-Order This Album

If you met Kosha Dillz on his never-ending tours with artists like Snoop Dogg, Matisyahu, or Alex Clare, you may have gotten an awkward vibe bordering traits best described as “weird,” “slightly off,” or “Hustler-esque.” While many artist would struggle with such descriptions, Kosha owns these traits and turns them to his advantage. He boasts his own playable character in NBA 2K11 and 2k13which has sold over 5,000,000 copies; Kosha is also the only rapper to ever perform in Hebrew at the BET Hip Hop Cypher; He is labeled as the “rawest Jewish kat I know” by RZA and toured with him nationally for “The Man with the Iron Fists film; He single handedly secured the license to the number one rated Super Bowl commercial by USA Today in 2012 with Bud Light’s ‘Here Weego’campaign. He even played on Yo Gabba Gabba Live! with DJ Lance Rock as a Super Musical Friend for multiple sold out shows. Not too shabby for an awkward Jewish rapper guy.

Kosha Dillz will release his brand new album, Awkward In A Good Way, on November 5 on the label#MURS316, created by Hip Hop Living Legend Murs (independent rap extraordinaire and brainchild of Paid Dues). The album is a ten-song musical creation with Belief (Jesse Shatkin), who has also produced for the likes of Kelly Clarkson, Action Bronson, and vocal prowess Sia.

The album is remarkable in its eclectic mix of musical styles. Juxtaposing sample-free synth heavy creations with Gangsta Boo of Three 6 Mafia joining Murs on “Where My Homies Be,” the song depicts the kind of map Kosha covers with his friendship. Kosha’s middle east twist on songs such as “Wavy” would rather have Mom put her hands up, than turn up, while songs like “Fwends” recall Kosha’s sober cocaine-induced fights with Katt Williams outside a Los Angeles club. “Zionist Yoga” compares politics to children, while “We are Different” with Murs, offers insight into the artist’s psyche and encourages us to embrace his awkwardly, awkward vibe, in a good way. 

 

So now go pre-order the album “AWKWARD In A Good Way”  here

Where were you born?

Perth Amboy, NJ

 

You are Israeli. When did you family immigrate to the US?

1976

 

Where do you live now?

Korea Town, LA baby

 

When did you start writing?

17 was when I started to dream, but maybe even 16.

 

Where was your first show? Tell us a litle about that experience.

Ha that was at the Harvest Moon opening up for Afu-Ra. I remember that. I wore an ol NY Nets jump suit.

 

Congratulation on your new single “Hangin Out” coming out on itunes . Where were you the moment it was released and how was the energy there?

Basiclaly the video came out. Its taken an interesting turn becuase the success of it in sales isn’t where I want it to be, but the song moves every person who hears it. I think it will last forever though. Thats the main thing.

 

So… you “be hangin’ out” where exactly? Where are your favorite spots?

I m big in west pico LA. I love the beach as well.

 

On your twitter I saw you refer to your followers are Dillzionaires and Dillzionettes, has it stuck yet?

Not yet actually,. Dillzionaires are people rich in their own mind. I feel thats what I am. If you cant be a millionaire, you gotta be a dillzionaire. We are tryin to come up. Special people.

 

In what city have you had the largest dillizionaire turn out?

I feel the midwest has always been kind, as well as NYC and the south east. Omaha and Oshkosh are always great places.

 

There are lots of interesting characters in your Hangin’ out video,where did they come from?Friends? the streetz? casting?

Majority of my friend came from friendship, homies, roommates and craigslist.

 

The person I’d like to know about the most is the older gentlemen with the gnarly beard and snazzy cardigan. Is there a good story about him?

He was actually a homeless guy I hit off with 4 bucks to play the air guitar. Well worth it. I see hi on the streets but he doesn’t remember me now.

 

 

“All These Years” is my favorite song by you. I like the nostalgia in it and that its in Paris–such a nostalgic city. Did you go there specifically to shoot the video?

It was such an improv shot. Johanna Tordjman (mojo hanna) is really responsible for hooking it up. Those kids couldn’t speak English, but she really made it happen.

 

Tell us your best story of your time in Paris.

I think it was when i played Elysse Montmartre and then filmed the video the next day before my flight. I had gotten my passoort stolen in Greece and finally made it out of there with various clearances from the government and police stations. it was quite the trip. I got a new passport in France and made my show.

 

I speak two languages, and I find that being proficient in both takes a lot of effort. I read somewhere that you rap in three: Hebrew, Spanish and English. That’s amazing. You’re Jewish so that explains knowing Hebrew, but where did you learn Spanish?

Spanish I learned in School man. Public school in NJ is great. I’m really thankful for that, restaurants, and soccer.

 

In Kosha Dillz- Is Everywhere (official documentary trailer) you say, ” Judaism, I don’t push that on anybody, I push music on people.”It is true that you don’t push Judaism, but you do loudly represent your heritage. However, many Jewish people aren’t religious, are you?

I would say people mention me as too jewish for certain jewish situations and not jewish enough for others. Same concept as black people who hang with all white people, and then feeling uncomfortable around all black people. Its unfortuante that we do this t our own creed, but I am not ashamed to wear my differences on my sleeve. I try to make all that “in-between” comfortable.

 

Please recommend some of your favorite musicians now.

Robin Thicke, Kid Cudi, Haim, Capital Cities, and the trumpet player from Macklemore.

 

Where is the furthest you’ve gone on tour?

Alaska

 

Where are you touring this summer?

Hitting the road with Turquoise Jeep and Matisyahu as a guest emcee.

 

What are you working on now?

I just finished my LP, “Awkward in a Good Way”.

 

Finally, what is your life motto?

“and nothing else matters” – Metallica – EDDIE
