Kosha is back at it again rapping over a smooth track, courtesy of Matty Trump, who handled the production on Sammy Adam’s debut album Boston’s Boy. The first verse, by Big Pooh, sets the bar for the dynamic collaboration. The bi-coastal Dillz then jumps into the fold and let’s us know that he just touched down in the city of Angels. Director Matthew Vaughan captures vibrance of a very colorful Koreatown, which serves as the perfect backdrop for both emcees. Hit the jump and check it out!

There’s no rest for the wicked dramatic. As if we’ve not had enough scenes to cringe at this year, hip-hop kept the gossip machine well-fed this week with a number of public outbursts. Drama aside, we present to you our five favorite slept-on releases from the past week. Props to Eddie B, Harry Fraud, Sean Price, Pharoahe Monch, Wispers, Kosha Dillz, DJ Skizz, Lil Fame and Ill Bill this time round.

Kosha Dillz, a/k/a ‘the Dilly Lama’ according to his twitter page, seems to also have borrowed a page from Kendrick Lamar’s “Backseat Freestyle,” in that they both seem to have reoccurring dreams. Although the centerpiece around Kendrick’s dreams is to obtain money and power, along with having his mind respected (or die from lead showers), Kosha’s focus seems to center around the misdirected “dreams” that we blindly chase in our youth, that we often end up paying for in our adult life.


If you like what you here, than be sure to check out the Dilly Lama do his thing this Friday at Littlefield NYC, along with Kool A.D. (of Das Racist), The Underachievers, Aaron Cohen and more. If you’d like to test your odds, the good folks over at Prefix are hosting a ticket giveaway where one winner will be awarded a pair of tix.

There’s something to be said about quirky records. Typically they’re a lot of fun and often showcase a level of talent that differs drastically from the same eight tracks that you hear in radio rotation. On “Nationally Rollin’,” the Venice Beach Wax connects with Greensboro, NC native Ed E. Ruger and the ubiquitous Kosha Dillz for what epitomizes the essence of a quirky record. From the “Low Rider” influenced Tito Puento sampled instrumental produced by Jon Jackson, to the dizzying and often hilarious wordplay of the three emcees, everything about this record is completely on point for what it’s trying to accomplish. I’m notably sold on the beat change up at the last four bars of every verse, where each artist spits a double-timed flow before drifting back into a rather wacky chorus that’s laced with these infectious horns that just pulls everything together. This is one of those tracks that you could imagine in either a Coen Brothers or Wes Anderson flick, during a road trip scene, etc. I believe that there’s a purpose for this record that exceeds beyond SoundCloud…I’m just sayin’.
