Meet Cosmo, aka Cosmost. While some people enjoy hobbies like knitting, skateboarding or cooking, Cosmo prefers creating instantaneous rhymes. His lines are quick and littered with witty pop culture references. But you don’t want to be on his bad side, otherwise you’ll be left with a bruised ego.
After his friend introduced him to freestyle three years ago, Cosmo caught the bug. Ever since then, catchy lines and insulting zingers have bombarded his brain. “It’s the only thing I’m really good at,” he said.
Every month Cosmo goes to the Oakland Metro Opera House for an underground variety show called Tourettes in hopes of bringing home the rap battle title and $100. In the video he made it to the final round. You can catch Cosmo Thursday, June 2 at the Oakland Metro.
