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

St. Joe Louis Purple Box Feat Ezrakh and Jahnia

NEW JERSEY Stand up your boys are back St. Joe Louis hit’s us via their Soundcloud early with some background music for these next few rainy days we have coming. This is called Purple Box Feat. Ezrakh and Jahnia, this is a mellow laid back track but each member goes in. Tom Chase gives you that smokey in the study flow, Elete Wright Styles heavy on this song and Michael Cardigan‘s energy on this is uncanny of course I have to mention Ezrakh who is also the Groups DJ and Jahnia who is a great Graphic artist and did the art for this song soothed the hell out of the chorus. Purple Box is basically stamping them as the connoisseurs of  filtered Cigars … SO light up and have a good day ya’ll

Daniel Joseph – Water

It’s been a while (3 YEARS!) since Daniel Joseph put a solo project out (rappin). This is called “WATER” off his new Project FAY.  Produced by Long Time collaborator and Friend KRK! aka JS KRILLZ. FAY is a collaboration of KRK and Daniel Joseph. W/ Features from the usual fam. It should be available in September, but according to Daniel Joseph “if you know me, you know I’ve forgotten my birthday a couple times. So, don’t quote the man”. Well the fam over here at MCMI will be on the look out for that project, but in the meantime check out this joint “WATER”.

Artifacts – “Easter” (prod. by Khrysis)

The Artifacts solidified their place in Hip Hop history 20 years ago, but never achieved commercial success and then the truly gifted lyrical team fell out and parted ways.  “Easter” is their official resurrection, their “second coming”, bringing them “back to life”. The track, produced by Khrysis, is a head nodder for sure and the cuts from DJ Dutchmaster add to the sway of the rhythm. Fans of real lyrics and hard beats will appreciate this one.
