Revered freestyler/rapper C-Rayz Walz is putting his talent to the test as he teams up with fellow Modular Moods rapper Kosha Dillz, for the upcoming album Freestyle vs. Written.
The 12-song project, which is described as a collaboration record featuring a Jewish and African-American rapper, will combine freestyle and written rhymes that were spawned during a 3 day recording session.
Among the songs featured are “I Love Jews” and “Ariel Sharon.”
Freestyle vs. Written is the latest in a string of recordings for C-Rayz Walz, who has recorded songs with artists like El-P, Jean Grae, Aesop Rock, Dead Prez member M-1 and Insane Clown Posse.
Dillz has garnered his own buzz among fans and critics with political songs on foreign affairs and oppression.
The Israeli American rapper has also appeared on BETs 106 and Park and shared the stage and performed with Pigeon John, the Pharcyde, Jurassic 5, Killah Priest and Grammy nominee Matisyahu.
C-Rayz Walz and Kosha Dillz Freestyle vs. Written is slated to be released digitally on August 26, while the album is scheduled to hit stores on September 15.
Ten percent of the proceeds from album sales will be donated to the Netivot Israel Louna Terror Victim Fund and the Foundation for Ethnic Understanding.
The foundation, which is headed by hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons and Rabbi Marc Schneier, is dedicated to strengthening relations between ethnic communities.
