“Hip-Hop used to be so classic, nowadays too many kids is not getting their ass kicked” says Jersey’s own Kosha Dillz, a rapper who’s never been afraid to speak his mind on a track. Whether you’re from the East or West Coast, you can’t deny the influence that Tupac Shakur had during his time on earth, and his posthumous efforts that have made him a household name. Reinjecting some forward thinking sounds with an addictive, yet loose flow, Dillz pays tribute to the emcee on the boastful joint “Tupac Gone Fishin,” directed by Tabi Bonney, which features some notable scenes of the emcee on a paddleboat with the ‘All Eyez On Me’ musician. “Tupac Gone Fishin” is just one of the many new songs you could hear on Dillz’ latest album Awkward In a Good Way, which is now available on iTunes through Murs 316, and stream, via BillBoard.

The ubiquitous Kosha Dillz has perhaps one of the most diverse groups of ‘rapper friends’ in quite possibly the history of the genre. To prove this point, the bi-coastal emcee recruits both Gangsta Boo and Murs for the debut leak “Where My Homies Be” off his sophomore solo album Awkward In A Good Way which is set to drop November 5th via Murs 316. Produced by Belief, whose whose composed tracks for the likes of Ghostface Killah, El-P, Talib Kweli, Action Bronson, Kelly Clarkson, Murs and Jean Grae, “Where My Homies Be” packs more ‘bounce to the ounce’ than Zapp & Roger. Stay tuned for the visuals to drop at an internet near you. Now hit the jump for the album stream and iTunes Pre-Order.
Harlem’s Kyle Rapps released his debut mixtape, “SUB” this week (June 18th). Sponsored by streetbrand Miska and produced entirely by LA’s Belief, “SUB” features appearances by Action Bronson, Murs, MFN eXquire and The Inner City Kids’ Aaron Cohen and Spaceman. Check out the mixtape which the artist describes as “post-apocalypse boom bap shit.”
Harlem emcee Kyle Rapps is bringing low budget multimedia visuals to a new level of griminess and fun factor. The quirky green screen-meets-photoshop platform portrayed in his videos is both artistic and hilarious, and is a welcomed departure from the fashionista and weedporn swag that the new New York scene is becoming known for. As a result, Rapps has garnered the attention and cosign of some higher profile artists such as Action Bronson, Mr Muthafuckin’ eXquire, and Murs, who are all featured on his mixtape “SUB” which drops this May. Show promoters are also taking note as last month Kyle was tapped by Live Nation to play a Vice Records showcase at Santos Party house with Bodega Bamz, and A$AP Twelvyy.
