Just when you thought there wasn’t any more white boy hip-hop (no offense), here comes Kosha DIllz, a New Jersey-bred emcee who says he’s “an artist who loves Jewish Israel zionistic hip-hop-esque, cool hipster-atious, bodacious moving beats and shows at cruddy bars with soon-to-be superstars.” Whatever that means, Kosha Dillz is on a mission to execute his witty rhymes to anyone who will listen. He already has two studio albums under his belt, 2008’s Freestyle Vs. Written and 2009’s Beverly Dillz, and, believe it or not, he’s garned plenty of press. From reviews on Urb.com to Spin.com, Kosha Dillz may be on to something. Sure, his lyrical content revolves around cliche topics such as drug abuse, cocaine dealing and prison time, but at least he manages to add a clever twist to each track to make them funny. Don’t worry, he does touch on Judaism, Hanukkah and throw a few Yiddish words in there to profess his love of all things Jewish then sets it to a “dope” beat to further solidify his hip-hop credibiliy. Catch Kosha Dillz slicin’ it up this Sunday on The Waiting Room stage. (Kyle Eustice)
