Kosha Dillz: A Year Of Hypebot Posts Builds To The Release Of “Awkward In a Good Way”

Kosha-dillzLast year indie rapper Kosha Dillz began a series of columns here at Hypebot giving his view from the frontlines of how to make it as an indie artist. Since then he's written a total of 16 columns sharing his unique approach to always finding a way to move forward. His tenacity is impressive and the challenges he faces are summed up, in some respects, by the title of his new album, "Awkward In a Good Way." I've gathered together info about the album and a complete list of Kosha Dillz' columns to date.

Kosha Dillz' "Awkward In a Good Way" was released November 5th through a new deal with Murs 316. Both Murs and Belief were closely involved in the creation of the album.

"Awkward In a Good Way" is currently available for streaming at Billboard along with a bit of background:

"Awkward In A Good Way is an album that allowed me to get out of my head…Creatively, Belief evokes a certain emotion in his production that embraces my awkwardness, in a way that no other producer has really captured. The title was really pushed on me by Murs. He told me that people will take me seriously once I realize that I'm never going to fit in, and that's ok. 'This is your lane, and you've created it, so accept it,' says Murs."
