PREVIOUS | Kosha Dillz Freestyles with Macklemore
A big thank you to Kosha Dillz for linking me to the latest track of his titled “No More War (Drums of Peace)”. Kosha Dillz is quoted from his YouTube page “Diwon aka Erez Safar was recently sent a video of IDF soldier Dror Gomel banging on his tank saying the words “No More War.” If you turn on the television it wouldn’t look like that time could come any soon, but if you leave it up to classic hip hop sampling combined with fresh English and Hebrew rhymes by Kosha Dillz, you create No More War into a viable hook that might make people dance for a bit together, and enjoy the similarities of lines like “we both want a new pair of air jordans” and “we both think Hamas is a big bag of horse sh#t!” You can watch IDF Soldier vs Diwon and Kosha Dillz – No More War (Drums of Peace) on the YouTube player below.

In devastating circumstances, Brown Bag AllStars member J57 received a request to produce a remix for Cage’s track “The Void”. I say devastating circumstances as his mentor and good friend “Ports” had passed away and J57 was notified literally minutes after the news of the passing that he had one night to complete the remix. In a tribute to Ports, J57 did an excellent job on the remix which has finally been made available for listening to the public.
