“A lot of rappers couldn’t do this,” says Kosha Dillz when asked about his experiences on Vans Warped Tour 2015. “Warped Tour is a different kind of grind,” he adds. The New Jersey native has juggled multiple duties while trying to stay on point as a performer this summer. Since beginning the tour in early June, Kosha has acted as his own street team, retailer, and moving crew. Stickers and promotional flyers baring his image can be found anywhere at every venue. This classic gorilla marketing strategy is used to promote his set time and is a trail leading to the Kosha Dillz tent, where Dillzionaires can buy music and apparel.

July 19th was a homecoming for the rapper formerly known as KD Flow. In typical fashion, his stickers and promotional flyers could be seen throughout PNC Arts Center in Holmdel, New Jersey. “It feels good be home,” said Kosha, who now resides in Los Angeles, California when he is not on the road touring. He took the Beatport Stage at 12:10 p.m. to perform for his hometown fans, and kept them mesmerized as he blazed through old and new tracks.

His unique lyricism and showmanship kept the crowd moving with songs from his album Awkward in a Good Way and his new EP What I Do All Day & Pickle. The biggest moment came when Kosha invited his mother on stage to vibe with spectators.

The rapper, who has resided in both Middlesex and Monmouth County, is featured on a shortlist of hip-hop artists on this year’s tour. Other hip-hop artists include – Mod Sun, Riff Raff, Isles, MC Lars, and Splitbreed.

After a long day of performing, talking to fans, and promoting his music with a makeshift picket sign he roamed around the venue with, it was time to go.

“Some rappers wouldn’t want to do all this themselves,” said Kosha as he packed up the Kosha Dillz tent with a little help from rapper friend, Flex Matthews.

Doing it himself is why he is featured on this year’s Vans Warped Tour and his grind has taken him places he could never imagine back in 2008. As Kosha continues to create his own success on this year’s Vans Warped Tour his different kind of grind will put him on bigger stages in year’s to come.
