Brooklyn's own KOTA the Friend drops his new song “Like Water," co-produced by Nimbus Beats. The new record, off his upcoming sophomore project, premiered on Ebro Darden's Beats1 Radio show.

On "Like Water," KOTA coasts, showing off his smooth style as he rhymes about his past stresses. His previous single, “Lawn Chair," was inspired by the time he got stranded in the desert.

Last year, the rising upstart released his debut EP, Palm Tree Liquor. The fantastic nine-track EP was a wonderful display of KOTA's raw talent and potential. His only guest appearance was former XXL Freshman Blu. He’s currently gearing up to release a new project in the coming months.

Check out KOTA The Friend’s interview with XXL for The Break here, where he explains what people can expect from him.

"I’m going to be the next song stuck in your head that has been written and produced by me," he shares. "That is my goal, make more fans, get more people to know about me and my music and work with some of my favorite artists. I’m also going to be the next person you follow on IG and Twitter."
