He's now given one of its singles, "What's Going On Upstairs?," the (NSFW?) video treatment, courtesy of director Matty Smooch. That video premieres in this post and can be watched below.

"He was initially exposed to hip hop at Bar Mitzvah dances, and when he heard the 'funky beats in the background' of 'old school bike videos' he would watch with his brother."

Word, this guy must be legit.

@5:22 - this is def paid pr fluff. Pretty much almost every article on Brooklyn Vegan is taken from press releases from indie pr companies.

It's funny how most of you people are on here commenting and judging this dude from a video with some actual original lyrics, while probably listening to another soulless hip hop track afterwards. I actually hung out with this dude quite a few times in the past and his highly ambitious behavior and constant work for his hip hop career is no joke. he may not be the best, but this guy won serious 97.1 freestyle battle last year against some of NY's most notorious hip hop freestlyers. The funny thing is, the more hate I see this guy receive the more he feeds off of it and directs the energy towards his career. If this guy makes it into the big leagues, it is because he worked extra hard for it and deserves all of it. No drugs no alcohol, just straight for the stars with no distractions :P

It's funny how you give a fuck what people think of the guy who is only getting attention cuz he's a Jewish rapper and he exploits his ethnicity to the hilt. I could give a fuck that he has "won battles". That doesn't mean shit. The rap world is fucking garbage. GARBAGE. Listen to Nas, Eric B. & Rakim, Ice T pre-Law & Order/Coco/Body Count ridiculousness - THAT'S RAP. Music which SAYS something. Even Eminem has made an attempt to go beyond the battle aspect with "Not Afraid".

What "work" has this guy put in? Tell me. Sold a mixtape? Set up his own shows or tour. I bet not. Hot 97 is bullshit - time to storm that studio and take it over from the dweebs who run it. Dude wants to be the next Matisyahu. Fuck him. Fuck Jews in rap i.e. fuck guys who market themselves as that. Kosha Dillz? Corny ass name, put a sign on your forehead saying you're Jewing it up.

BTW black people aren't blowing up this cat. Why is it that the "next rap sensation" is always white?

Kosha Dillz is the truth. He is hero for Israel. He sets up own tours everywhere and you should do research you dumb cunt.
