Kosha Dillz arrives just in time to relieve the bad taste left in most hip-hoppers’ mouths by Asher Roth. Riding on a similar platform of hip, on-campus conversational raps, Dillz delivers his debut LP Beverly Dillz and succeeds largely because he actually sounds like he’s aiming to impress—not that this should come as a surprise. Dillz is currently on tour with the RZA and cut his first full project with East Coast underground legend and former MTV Made coach C-Rayz Walz. Beverly Dillz, recorded during a West Coast vacation, is a simple and fun-loving album that has an obvious longing for the golden era of hip-hop. It does carry a bit of a hipster slant to it, especially with songs like “Fat Love” and “See What I’m About” that sound like a Weird Al interpretation of KiD CuDi. However, at 42 minutes, Beverly Dillz won’t take up too much of your time, and the album’s sense of humor is inviting.
