If you have been keeping up with the Dillz, things are beginning to heat up on his tour, where he teamed up with “The New York Love Song,” an upcoming independent film company to begin the filming of his documentary that peers into the life of a D.I.Y. artist that self books tours, sleeps on floors, rocks SXSW, and earns a video game character in NBA 2k11 to worldwide voyages with Matisyahu, Snoop Dogg and Rza of the Wu Tang Clan. Although that could be the focal point , the documentary’s main point is to show his triumph from the prior life of Kosha Dillz, who was has dealt with drugs, jails, parole, and addiction to Division I athletics and high school wrestling stardom all before his career .
The “Give me Five Tour” has hit shows so far with everyone from Shinobi Ninja and The Movement to Lollapalooza indie superstars Tennis, and will take on Colorado this week for a slew of shows with Del The Funky Homosapien, Evidence, and Fashawn. For each person who attends a show, signs the email list, attends a facebook event, gives a “high five” to Kosha Dillz or buys a piece of merchandise, a nickel will be given to the Tiptinas Foundation. Also every social media hashtag of #givemefive #givemefivetour will add a nickel, along with a “like” to the Kosha Dillz fan page.
By donating to the Tiptinas Foundation fans will be supporting Louisiana and New Orleans’ music community, much of which is still suffering from Hurricane Katrina. People are also encourage to donate on their own accord, and the hope is to create enough awareness of the “give me five tour” and raise $5,000 for the foundation.
