Top 10 things I did in 2017
hey guys. It’s the last most interesting email blast of the year you’ll get. If you are in LA tonight, come celebrate with me and Teragram Ballroom and I’ll get you in for free (if it means I have to buy you a ticket I will, because I love you)
Im going on all in here trying to figure out what exactly I did this year that was really cool. I live a life based on experience, and feed off the love I get from my email list of fans.
1.. I opened up for Doug E Fresh at Sundance Film Festival and it was super awesome. Like. It was legendary. He said I was Fresh.
2. I rapped with John Popper from Blues Traveler and Vernon Reid of Living Colour – which was friggin insane! How the hell could I collaborate with the legend who wrote cult of personality. Right before that I did a photo shoot with Dave Bautista while promoting his movie Bushwick.
3.. I curated my own official SXSW showcase called OY VEY and booked the Cool Kids which is like one of my most favorite rap groups ever at a capacity show. Also Raul Midon played and was then nominated for.a Grammy.I am doing another one in 2018 as well!!!
4. I flew to Israel and played my first festival in Yearot Menashe. it was on the main stage with my Israel band and included many of israel;’s stars like Ester Rada and Orphaned Land.
5. I played 6 shows at this festival called Electric Forest after meeting a girl named Honey LaRochelle at an event in Los Angeles. She let me join her band. Once I was there, I rapped with Matisyahu and Trevor hall and also slept in my friend Bridget’s truck because camping is literally the worst. I also did my own set <3 6. I took stage at Coachella for the first time in the silent disco with my friend DJ Ethos during the silent disco and I got Rabbi Yonah an artist pass marking the first time a Rabbi has ever gotten a backstage pass at Coachella. So basically, Coachella = Koshachella and I met Sylvester Stallone in a lion king shirt. 7. I wrote a rap song about the Israel Baseball team I was contacted by a movie company that did a $500,000 documentary and filmed me a $15,000 music video for Jews with Bats and it is premiering in 2018 in all these film festivals. listen to the song on Spotify if you'd like. 8. I did two headlining tours, OY VEY USA /KEEP IT KOSHA RAP Tour It included touring with a full time drummer jon Longley (from warped tour) and we crushed everywhere and also slept in the van. We had some killer shows and also Brought along our friend Shir from israel she is awesome. 9. I stayed clean for 13 years this year and celebrated That means I haven't gotten high in like...hella long... 13 years and 5 months (tomorrow on December 30th) which is cool because sometimes life sucks and you wanna do drugs and drink but I don't because I always went to jail lol. Also I didn't celebrate by getting drunk I celebrated by drinking coffee and eating ice cream I think. 10. In the past 45 days I got more press than all year. I wrote an op-ed about addiction In Variety about the death of Lil Peep and Warped Tour, got written about in the Grammy's, and got mentioned on FakeshoreDrive, NPR, consequence of sound, XXL Magazine, BET, Hotnewhiphop and HipHopDX. dropped a song on Spotify called Dreidel Trap that became my #1 song on Spotify and got on my first Spotify playlist. Extra Credit: We had our first sold out show in Seattle at Crocodile-Backbar. This was my first sold out show ever with me headlining
