Kokayi (theCaesarz) – Blow

blame it on Meka September 2, 2009

QN5’s newest grammy-nominated signee, Kokayi, has just released a digital-only album with his band, theCaesarz. On All Hail, the multi-talented singer/songwriter/emcee/producer conjures up a punk-infused rock record mashed with electronic vibes accessible to any generation of music lovers. A prolific songwriter, the DC-native originally created these songs to sell, but after some time and much encouragement, he decided to release the songs on his own as an album. Kokayi explains the situation below:

“This record was written with the express intent to sell to an artist or artists whom i felt could best translate the thoughts, angst , sorrow and joy of these excerpts from my life. The record has sat on countless hard drives and in inboxes of my many cohorts in this music thing. When sharing the songs via email, I expressed my insecurity in releasing the work with such heavy laden baggage attached, hence my reasoning to have someone else perform them, so that they could be judged. It didn’t work. My friends said that I should put it out there, loosely translated as..”put you out there” so that I could take on the onus of ownership. Bah humbug. So in the words of some writer who wrote it for David Alan Greer’s character ‘Calhoun Tubbs’ on the inimitable In Living Color, “I wrote a song about it, Like to hear it,? Here it go!”…ahhh haaaaa…. – Kokayi (theCaesarz)
