Kosha Dillz debuts new video off his Awkward album

Kosha Dillz brings us his latest video with "What's Going On Upstairs?" from his album Awkward in a Good Way via Murs' Label 316. The video, directed by Matty Smooch (@mattysmooch) depicts a "month to month rent thriller" of the loud neighbor that might live above your floor. Kosha Dillz happens to play out every character over boom bap vibes on Belief (aka Jesse Shatkin) production; a guy with a hot girlfriend, a mustached hairy cowboy, and a man with dominatrix taste. So the question remains...What's Going On Upstairs? If you are still unsure, at least let's hope the rent in this place gets lowered!
