Kosha Dillz, a multi-lingual rapper who rhymes in English, Hebrew and Spanish, just wrapped up his summer-long stay on Warped Tour. His first album “Freestyle vs. Written” dropped in 2008, with his follow-up album “Beverly Dillz” releasing in 2009. Dillz third and most recent album “Awkward In a Good Way” came a few years later in 2013.

Sean Richie: Coming from New Jersey, just outside of New York City, describe your home setting. Where do you like to spend your time?

Kosha Dillz: Well for one I have to say I love the Jersey Shore. I’m a fan of places like [Long Beach Island], Belmar and I’m particularly fond of the Lower East Side. Outside of the United States one of my favorite places is Israel.

SR: Outside of the Jersey Shore what else do you like to do in your home state?

KD: I am a big fan of diners, and especially parts of North Jersey by Mt. Vernon — Mt. Creek. I’ve always had a lot of fun there.

SR: In regards to Israel, it’s packed full of history there. What particularly stands out to you?

KD: That’s where my whole family is from. My parents house is in Kiryat Tiv’on — a really small town. That’s something that I’m a fan of.

SR: When you go away on vacation are you looking more for a beach setting or more of an urban nightlife?

KD: I’d still say I would prefer to go to [Lake] Tahoe to this day.

SR: What exactly stands out? The setting or nature?

KD: The lake itself and the snow caps. It’s hot and then you have areas like that. I just love the small town feel.

SR: Are you a big hiker or mountain biker?

KD: Yes, I’m actually in a hiking club in [Los Angeles]. We normally take the trail on Running Canyon. It overlooks all of LA. I’m part of a good group of people. Many of them aren’t from the LA area so its nice to get different perspectives.

SR: That is awesome! How would you say music and travel fit together?

KD: It’s an entire experience. The whole experience is really cool. You never know who you’re going to meet — who you may run into at the airport. It’s just really cool that music lets you experience those things. That’s what traveling is kind of all about. I still stay in touch with these people [I meet].

SR: That’s one of our biggest reasons behind SCP — connecting people, bringing people together. What does it mean to you to really connect with the locals and get intertwined with their culture?



KD: Whenever we go to places we don’t get paid all that much so a lot of the times I stay with people at their homes. They help us out a lot.

SR: That’s a good way to really see a destination and get a true sense for what’s going on. Talk a little bit about your travel on Warped Tour.

KD: We roll into parking lots daily. On the weekends we stop at the truck stops. I think it’s cool because you never know where you’ll end up and who you may meet along the way.

SR: Are there any destinations on your bucket list that you haven’t been to, but want to see?

KD: I would really love to tour all of Canada. It’s really nice over there. I think it would be really exciting. In general I’d love to go to places like South America and Africa.

SR: Is there a specific destination you would like to preform in?

KD: I would actually like to play at Gorge Amphitheater in Washington or Red Rocks in Colorado.

SR: Lastly, do you have any plans to go anywhere?

KD: I’m going to Poland with my mother. I’m also going to Israel and Germany — the travel experience is going to be awesome.
