Kota the Friend

Brooklyn MC, Kota the Friend, releases his long-awaited debut album, FOTO. After turning down 3 major label deals, Kota the Friend has delivered his self-produced project independently via FLTBYS. You'll find him confronting issues such as insecurities, fears, systematic racism and sexism, but also celebrating life, self-love, family, friends, hard times and his biggest inspiration; his son Kota. Speaking more on the 19-track offering, he states: "During the interludes the matriarchs of my family are telling the stories, showing the essential role that women have. It was important for me to include that. Foto is like flipping through a photo album of everything that has gotten me to this point so everyone who has impacted me is on this project— one way or another." Give it a listen below:
