Brooklyn rhymer KOTA┬ácopes with his demons┬áon his new EP┬áPalm Tree Liquor, premiering on┬áBillboard.
“Palm Tree Liquor┬áis about pushing through deep depression,” he tells┬áBillboard.┬á”For a long time, I suffered from sadness┬álike many others. I want the project to tell the story of a young person growing up in Brooklyn, dealing with loneliness, trust issues, uncertainty, alcoholism and┬ácynicism.”
Recorded in his basement,┬áPalm Tree Liquor┬átakes listeners on a sound trip with reflective bars on top of ear-pleasing beats like the dreamy opener “Sunny Day,” the┬áJungle Book-sampling┬á”Mancub” and the loner anthem “Island Man” featuring Blu.┬áHe adds of the project,┬á”It’s not a story about me winning against my demons but more like me finding common ground with them and accepting my past so that I can live in┬áthe present.”
Get more familiar with KOTA┬áin the interview and his┬áPalm Tree Liquor┬áEP below. He will also be performing on July┬á14 at┬áAnalog BKNY┬áfor┬áFlight Night ÔÇ£The Underdog Series,” where he will be┬ábe performing┬áPalm Tree Liquor┬áfor the first time.
