Cohorts has rearranged, remixed, and remastered their previously released album “The West Coast Offense.” The idea for this was sparked after an unfortunate hard drive crash, which resulted in this version having less songs than the original. A crashed hard drive, and a pandemic lockdown doesn’t have to be all bad, evidenced by this artistic endeavor. Cohorts’ musical projects are all geared towards the grown and sexy crowd, and are all produced by Kartuush. Parental Advisory label is required. RawNaked Entertainment is the label that releases these offerings. “The West Coast Offense” was originally released back in 2011. The re-release version will be available soon. However The first single titled, “You Can’t Beat L.A.” is currently available for streaming and downloads here:

The pair of MCs had recorded together for about 2 decades before forming the rap duo [Cohorts]. “Classic west coast production accented by true Hip Hop artists who aren’t afraid to have fun over a beat.”– Makin’ It Magazine

“Sometimes life takes us to the point when nothing seems to make sense, and everything you do turns against you.Burning Rain Forests in the Amazon, vast bush fires in Australia, Oceans drowning in plastic… devastating disasters across the planet.

Everything and everyone is connected and all is happening for a reason. If things don’t work the way we have planned its time to let go And still- it is a chance. A chance to rethink our values, to profoundly question our ways of life. To meditate, to transcend. The right moment will come again to reach out and spread positive energy. We invite you to dissolve into our music. Meet you on the other side.” – Kris Kolanus CEO Mad-Hop Records
