blame it on Shake May 22, 2020

After kicking the year off with some Lyrics To GoKota the Friend is back at it with the release of his sophomore album, EVERYTHING

A follow-up to last year’s stellar FOTO album, the Brooklyn rapper’s second full-length will be a little more upbeat compared to the first go around. 

“I think the difference between this one and Foto is that this one is just a lot more up tempo. It has a lot more bops than Foto does,” Kota told our man Aaron Williams over at uproox. “One thing I wanted to focus on with this one is, I wanted to make it just a really feel-good album. I didn’t want one song to be a downer. I wanted every song be uplifting and just really get people hyped and get people in a good mood or feel a really good version of nostalgia.”

Locked in at 12 tracks, including the “BQE” banger with Joey Bada$$ and Bas, the album also features contributions from Tobi Lou, Braxton Cook, KYLE, Kaiit, Hello O’shay, Alex Banin, and (his son) Lil Kota. There’s also appearances from Academy Award-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o and rising star Lakeith Stanfield.
