Diddy songwriter to release a Christian hip-hop project
After years writing songs for Grammy-winning, platinum-selling rap mogul Diddy, Roger “EVRYTHNG CO$T” Green, formerly known as Mista Raja, released a music video for his debut single under the new moniker this week.
“Can’t Turn Back”, the lead single from EVRYTHNG CO$T’s upcoming project The Harvest, is more Gospel than one would expect from a Diddy co-writer.
“Can’t Turn Back,” EVRYTHNG CO$T said, “takes you inside a classic hostage scenario where his past gangster, lustful and egotistical life has caught up to his new future, but he’s not returning. The dramatic visual paints the powerful message in the music of overcoming anything in life.”
EVRYTHNG CO$T’s list of songwriting credits is made up of many Diddy tracks including Grammy-nominated single “Satisfy You” featuring R. Kelly, which peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1999. EVRYTHNG CO$T has also written for Lil Kim, Maino and Roscoe Dash, among others.
