Kosha Dillz is a little over a week deep into his “Give Me 5 Tour,” which has already taken him from Ithaca to Maine to his home state of New Jersey. Eventually he is making his way West and then all the way to SXSW 2011 for official showcases.
Having already stage dove, filmed scenes from his documentary and done a limited premier of his music video for “All These Years” feat Joanna Tjordman – Kosha Dillz is taking America one city or town at a time. Tomorrow night, he takes over Arlene’s Grocery with video game loving Shinobi Ninja.
On this tour, the freestyle legend and NBA 2K11 character will share the stage with not only Shinobi, but also Del Tha Funky Homosapien, Ugly Duckling, Evidence, The Movement, rising indie rock band Tennis, and many others. Kosha will be performing in cities across the United States in support of the Tipitina’s Foundation.
On the Give Me 5 Tour Kosha will not only be performing his classic Beverly Dillz and Freestyle vs. Written cuts, but also promoting material from his forthcoming “Gina EP” and ‘The Garage Sale LP,” including the singles “The Garage Sale,” “Span Hebrish” and “All These Years” feat. Joanna Tjordman.
For each person who attends a show, gives a “high five” to Kosha Dillz or buys merchandise, a nickel will be given to the Tiptinas Foundation. Additionally, Kosha will have a pseudo collection plate that concert attendees can donate to during the Give Me 5 freestyle portion of his show. The goal of the Give Me 5 Tour is to raise at least $5,000 for Tipitina’s Foundation.
By donating to the Tiptinas Foundation, whose mission is to support Louisiana and Orleans’ irreplaceable music community as well as preserve the state’s unique musical culture and heritage, much of which is still suffering from Hurricane Katrina, Kosha continues his mission of supporting cultures affected by tragedy. In 2010, Kosha’s “Hero For Haiti’s Tour” raised money for various independent charities supporting Haitian relief efforts.
