Kota has only recently released his flawless mixtape Lyrics to Go, Vol. 1, where he shows his lyrical talent and his ability to adept his own style to many different hip hop vibes, but he keeps releasing new music. His freshest single is by far one of his best and that’s not only because heavyweights Joey Bada$$ and Bas decided to record a verse. “B.Q.E.” is a modern approach to old school Brooklyn hip hop and gives us a clear vision of what we can expect from Brooklyn’s hottest hip hop newcomer. We had a quick Q&A with Kota The Friend to talk about his music, his upcoming debut album and Jay Z.
You’re on a roll and already released a lot of music this year. How do you keep yourself productive?
I just dont like being stagnant. Staying productive keeps me sane and keeps my mind off of the negative things.
The rap industry is bigger than ever with many talented acts. What makes you unique in your opinion?
I think any artist that speaks from their soul and creates sounds based on how they feel is a unique artists. The only time an artist isn’t unique is when they try to sound like someone else.
