Roxstar Status

As hard as I try to expose people to new and independent artists on the grind to making themselves household names, I fail more times than I succeed. One artist that I definitly have shown enough love to(READ: Damn near none) is the D.M.V.'s Kokayi. If you remember the Funkadelic Freestyles post from '09, then you remember Kokayi completely obilterating the mic with one of the most entertaining freestyle flows ever recorded.

While I was in slumber mode the Grammy-nominated rapper, singer, producer and songwriter released his latest album Robots and Dinosaurs in October. Now that I'm awake, check out his new video for Roxstar and some inside information on Kokayi the artist and the new album after the jump.

It's easy to get get caught up in all the visuals, but for full effect, go back and replay this joint a couple of times to make sure you caught all of the rock band references.

Get your copy of Robots and Dinosaurs here! You can also stream and purchase some of Kokayi's back catalogue here.
