Japanese hip hop star, Kohh

26 February 2019 By 3 Comments

One of the most eminent rapper in the Japanese scene is without doubts, Kohh, he grew up in the Oji district of Kita in northern Tokyo, surrounded by a difficult background: a suicided father and a mother addicted to meth.  This can be familiar regarding the American hip-hop, but among a Japanese contest it became even more fascinating.

The artist is the protagonist of the short movie Kohh’s son, his nickname, indeed, is an homage to his father. Short and intense, dark and surreal it goes over the Kohh’s life from his childhood to the worldwide success. A rap movie with an interesting introspective and reflective view of the rapper, showing the vulnerable side of a celebrity.

Kohh’s music, his growing influence and presence on the global scene. He specks about  life and death, even though it’s hard to decipher his massage sometimes.

Not only his music style but also his look is being part of the success, he has the artwork L.H.O.O.Q. on his throat, a reproduction of Leonardo da Vinci’s  Mona Lisa in which Duchamp drew a moustache and beard in pencil. Following one of his most famous tracks.
