For almost a decade, KOTH, born Thaddeus David, has been kicking flavor and setting the streets of Seattle on fire. On his own, and as a member of the popular duo Hellavuhstate, the Northwestern rapper has been making a name for himself with one consistent factor over the years: timeless music. After taking a brief hiatus from releasing music, the Seattle lyricist has announced his return and he’s gunning for the top.
His debut single under his new moniker, KOTH, comes as a triumphant return that his fans have been patiently waiting for. Off of his upcoming EP, his lead single “Pike” is full of quick-witted bars, non-stop flows, and knockout punch-lines. With a modern twist on Mase’s classic “Feel Good,” the Def Dee-produced single assisted by the Detroit legend Payroll Giovanni, is guaranteed to heat up this winter. While time may have passed since his last release, KOTH’s style and flow have remained untouchable.
