Koga Shabazz

Murder Me!

Released October 2018

Anticipation for the MURDER ME! mixtape from Koga Shabazz has been high. He threw two completely different record release events: A listening party at Can’t Blame The Youth in the ID, and then a star-studded showcase at Chop Suey complete with live band. In their review, Respect My Region focus on the literary aspects: “Pressing play feels like opening a book… Koga experiments with different flows and vocal approaches: raspy deep, light-hearted and quick spit, going from one vibe to the next, even smack in the middle of a song. It really blows your mind.”
