Although many in the… uh… older crowd might question characterizing rapper Kosha Dills (and perhaps all rappers) as performing “music,” it is undeniable that rap and hip hop have a huge fan base. Thirty-nine year old Dillz (birth name Rami Matan Even-Esh) is the son of Israeli immigrants to the U.S. Although he rhymes in English, Hebrew, Yiddish and Spanish, he can only speak English fluently. He was initially exposed to hip hop at Bar Mitzvah (and perhaps Bat Mitzvah — unclear) dances.
Quote: “Illuminated by blue neon lights from the nearby taco truck and the brightness of the white marquee reading ‘Kosha Dillz,’ you could usually spot him wearing a sweatshirt or “Kosh Hashana” jersey and baggy pants. Sporting a ‘chai’ baseball cap and Star of David bling, he’d usher people inside, luring them with free pickles before he got onstage to rap.”
