Cosmo brings Freshman EP “Criminal God” to all streaming platforms.
The project title begs explanation: “I directed this EP from the angle of a five-percenter. Growing up, I learned from the energy of other five-percenters around me. I wanted to portray the culture in a street way. When you’re supposed to have knowledge of self and live righteous – but you’re doing the same wrong things as others – you gotta do it with consciousness. I talk about a lot of real situations I’ve been in, in my life,” Cosmo says.
The project sees features from Kool G Rap, Ray Luga, Bobby Garcia and Holli Wave Hondo. On production is Architect Allah and Prince Karem.
Prior to the March 6th release, Cosmo unleashed single “Today’s Math” – in 2020 .
In conjunction with Cosmo’s mother, who inspired the project title, his biggest influencers are Wu Tang Clan, Jay Z, LL Cool J, Nas, Run DMC, Erik B and Rakim, Houdini, Dipset, Onyx, Russell Simmons, Malcolm X and Marcus Garvey, to name a few. In addition to his own voice, you can hear a bit of theirs in his music.
