[WATCH] KOTA The Friend – Customs (OFFICIAL VIDEO)

Posted by : The Messenger , December 2015

KOTA has been buzzing for a while, getting dope looks from blogs like Pigeons and Plans, The Source, Vibe & Global Grind and has been named the coolest Indie rapper by NYLON. Today he drops the official video for his first single entitled “CUSTOMS”.

The visual portrays a Brooklyn youth hustling to make his dreams come true.
As a teenager KOTA produced, recorded and engineered his own music in his basement
while trying to create a clothing brand known as Flight Boys (www.flightboys.com).
From washing windows at the local bodega to exploring sketchy buildings in the garment district in search of the cheapest blank tee shirts, this video tells a portion of KOTA’s story in the most accurate way. KOTA takes us to all the places that he ventured as a New York City kid. This visual was also shot, directed and edited by KOTA himself.
The visual stars another Brooklyn artist Yun Nostra. Check it out below.
