Freestyle Rap Saved My Life – Kosha Dillz

Kosha Dillz shares his adventures with TEDxKazimierz about how Freestyle Rap has transformed his life from where he was with drug addiction and stints in prison to a performance artist. Stories from Matisyahu to RZA to the BET Awards to making $50,000 outside the Grammy’s while rapping on the street … It is all in this miraculous TEDX TALK.

According to the self-proclaimed “#1 Rapper in Korea Town”

Believe it or not … a life plagued with drugs , addictions, anxiety, depression, and email happiness led to a career in rap that started from me freestyling. People say it is my most powerful asset in my shows, and it really catapulted me to be quite honest. Even when I live my life before I speak to a cashier at Ralph’s or see a pretty girl on the beach, I always have to come up with something quick to say, and that is a “FREESTYLE.”

A 34 year old New Jersey artist born to Israeli parents, Rami Even-Esh has landed himself in rap battles, jail cells, rehabs, video games, Super Bowl commercials and world tours for millions of people. He came up with the name Kosha Dillz to keep his Jewishness alive when he felt his life had gone astray. (You will hear more about it in the TedX Talk).

In the last few years Kosha has become one of the most sought out “jewish artists” in pop culture alongside Matisyahu and Drake. Dillz has penned numerous articles for Billboard about experiences with anti-semitism, addiction and the Holocaust. rhymes in English, Hebrew and Spanish and understands the power of transformation through personal experience. After a trip to Kraków and Warsaw with his mother and great aunt to walk through the concentration camp, Kosha recorded a song about Kraków for his upcoming album “What I do all day and pickle” and filmed this music video.

The talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format, but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

Wu-Tang Clan’s Secret Album Unveiled: Once Upon A Time In Marrakech


In March, FORBES broke news that the Wu-Tang Clan was planning to release just one copy of an album recorded in secret over the past six years. So Forbes went to Morocco to get the full story — and came back with a snippet of the mysterious record. I hope I get to hear this album one day….and I hope even more that it lives up to the time and effort put into this grandiose artistic presentation.
