In 2005, distraught and exhausted from a Division I athletic wrestling career gone sour from jails, institutions, and battles with addiction, Rami Even-Esh, aka Kosha Dillz, saved up spare change and worked pizza delivery jobs to self release his first 12" vinyl, that would shape up to be a independent college radio hit. Three years later, after two full USA tours, a nationwide clothing drive through 45 cities, and a whole lot of therapy, Kosha Dillz created Freestyle Vs Written, a 24 hour collaboration album with indie veteran C-Rayz Walz that earned him accolades across the globe from URB and Israel National News to SPIN Magazine. In 2009, there is a new direction; Beverly Dillz.

Produced entirely by Belief, who is known for his range of work with artists from Murs and Beanie Man to El-P, Beverly Dillz translates as an uptempo, synthesized introduction to a spiritual fast life of the Hollywood underground via Garden State perspective, sprinkled with a touch of unorthodox "kosher" heritage and culture. With that not being the smallest of tasks, Kosha Dillz brings along guest vocalists Sum Kid and Def Jux collaborator Yak Ballz, as the only additions on his musically empowered vacation West.

Beverly Dillz, his solo red carpet debut LP, which is scheduled for a November 10th release, was recorded entirely in the Beverly Hillz section of Los Angeles, while the lyrics were composed at various overpriced coffee houses and internet cafes through out the city. A frequent maker of history, Kosha Dillz will attest to rhyme the first song in Hebrew on an American indie album, "Kol Ha Kavod Lirkod (its all good to dance)". And for those who don’t speak Hebrew, songs like "Dilly Wonka"and "LA Ish" will keep you dancing from the happy go -rich lounges of any US city to the pretty sides of your local dive bar, any day of the week.
