Brooklyn boy, Dillon Cooper, recently shared his second video single off his highly anticipated debut project, Cozmik.  Similar to his first release, Survival of the Fittest, Coop flexes on a 90’s sounding beat by Muvafux.  Dillon elevates from his previous releases with ingenious wordplay, a smooth hook and an non stop energy in front of the camera.  Release date for the mixtape is still unknown, but I’m confident Dillon won’t release this until he reaches a state of perfection.

Hip-Hop, Videos | Dillon Cooper – Survival Of The Fittest [Music Video]

Dillon Cooper is on the brink of breaking out of his shell – no pun intended (get it? Brink. Brink Brinker. Disney Movie. Rollerblades. Dillon Cooper blades.).   Poised with passion, energy, and a special musical blessing, Brooklyn’s own Dillon Cooper shares the first video single off of his forthcoming debut project, Cozmik.  Cooper’s musical inspiration is driven by spirit of pro roller blade skater and best friend Brian “Cozmik” Scott, who was tragically murdered during a BK robbery back in 2010.

The 19-year old may have only lived through the tail end of hip-hop’s golden era, but he packs a full flare of raw, 90’s inspiration into his music.  A spunky freshness comparable to Bel-Air’s Prince, Cooper showcases his wordplay while staying very animated in front of the camera.  Speaking of the camera, “Survival of the Fittest” was directed and edited by Hi-Lite Reel Boston.  Stay tuned, big things coming from this young gun.

Freestyle, Hip-Hop, Videos | Dillon Cooper – Richie Rich x Shook Ones Pt. 2

Richie Rich was easily one of my favorite movies growing up.  Truth be told, I still own it on VHS.  The young cat Dillon Cooper takes a few moments to pause from his video game session to personify the lavish lifestyles of the music industry.  Unfortunately there’s a very high saturation of individuals of “artists” in the music industry who value their appearance more than their message. Arrogance we call it.  Fortunately, Dillon Cooper does not fall into that population. This kid is raw talent and proves just that on this new freestyle.

“Supreme hats nowadays is what they call swag, culture vultures flossin’ now they think they’re all that”

In addition to “Richie Rich”, the RAD leader takes a stab at the classic, “Shook Ones Pt. 2”.  I’ll say it over and over again that its hard to come on this beat proper and you don’t want to embarrass yourself if you’re going to come soft.  DC holds his own on this one, well done youngen.  Cooper’s debut mixtape, Season 1, coming soon!

Posted by on August 15, 2012

After grasping the attention of hip-hop heads across the blogosphere with the release of “Shadows” and “Shadows Pt. 2”, the 19-year old Brooklyn native is back with a brand new track.  Produced by Jay Da Great, Dillon Cooper reflects on what his life has become since he broke onto the scene back in the spring.  The R.A.D. general recorded this one a few nights ago and decided he had to share it with his fans less than 24 hours later.  Although there’s no set date, we do know Dillon is working on his debut mixtape, Season 1, featuring production from Teddy Roxpin, Pat White, and of course Jay Da Great.

Hip-Hop, Videos | Dillon Cooper – Common People

Posted by on April 18, 2012

Brooklyn native Dillon Cooper is no common person. Not only does he display his dazzling dance moves, he spits some straight fire over this soon to be summer anthem. Now this is one of my few times hearing of Dillon, but this song really caught my attention. His flow is on point, wordplay is quality, and keeps us engaged the whole time. This kid has what it takes to really go far, so peep this track and check out the visuals. Video done by the legendary Jon Kilmer.

When the population of “aspiring rappers” has surpassed guidos on the Jersey shore, it makes it difficult to identify true talent.  I was introduced to Dillon Cooper, a 19 year old MC and Guitarist born and raised in Brookyn, NY.  He just recently relocated to Boston where he’s attending the well respected Berklee University, which looks to be the right move for the young kid.  This video above was shot by the one and only Jon Kilmer, and at first glace this kid showed me enough confidence and charisma in his delivery to continue watching with an eager eye.  His lyrics are on point, his sound is well rounded, and let’s be honest, who doesn’t love an Ali sample to kickstart the track?

Dillon’s mission is to speak from his soul and stay true to his self and his crew, R.A.D; Ridiculous and Driven. Seen in the video are RAD JaY THE GREAT who is actually the producer of the song and T-RAD, Dillon’s older brother.  Sound off in the newly refined comments section!
