Kobenz – Gothik (ft. Spaceman Zack) [Interview]

  • Please Introduce yourself

Hey, I am Kobenz, and I am an underground artist from Minneapolis. I started rapping about three months ago following some severe trauma I faced in an abusive relationship. This ultimately led to me becoming suicidal, and I ended up going to an inpatient facility. I wrote my self-titled debut, “Kobenz”, off of a much darker poem I wrote during my time in the hospital. The song did really well, and now I have just released my second song Gothik featuring celebrity rapper Spaceman Zack.
