Lew Sid grabs Jade Josephine and Intalek and pays tribute to The Cosby Show.
Rapping over the show’s theme song, all three add their flavor to the beat.
Of course, it would not be right if they didn’t pay tribute to the dance introduction to the show.
“How You Feeling” is something to look forward to. - TasteCreators


Lew Sid is making a stellar name for himself combining his talented rhymes with eye-popping visuals. His “Cosby Show” themed “HOW YOU FEELIN’?” has racked up over 26K plays and has been featured all over the country. Lew Sid is back with another standout video for the single “DON’T GET ME STARTED” featuring Big Ligiee. The blaxploitation throwback is a mix between the 1970s film “Shaft” and the more current “Black Dynamite” (2009). In the video, like in all blaxploitation films, the cops take on the pimps in a high action drama that ends with a fist fight, with karate – of course. Lew’s depiction, shot by TorchHouse Media and directed by Patrick Lincoln, is smart, creative and funny. While the video is 1970s East Coast the track is definitely 2018 southern-inspired, with a beat pattern that could have come straight out from the ATL dungeon family. Lew adds his versatile flow and Big Ligiee enhances the track nicely. He’s got another one. #WESEEIT - TheCheatsMovement

We haven’t heard much about Bill Cosby or The Cosby Show since the comedian’s fall from grace back in 2016.

But artist Lew Sid (@Lewsidraps) put a new spin on an old classic and turned The Cosby Show into the Trill Cosby Show. Genius! - Global Grind

Growing up in an era where lunch room cyphers nurtured his creativity, Lew Sid takes pride in coming correct lyrically and delivering a vibe that cant be duplicated. Grabbing his influences from the likes of Lupe Fiasco, Kanye West, and Busta Rhymes, Lew Sid’s blend of lyricism and unmatched music are one of a kind.

In October 2016, Lew released his single off of his latest project Saga One. The Paul Cabbin produced record, Whole Squad, quickly caught the attention of many.

Bio

Lew Sid is an American Hip-Hop artist/songwriter originating from Virginia Beach, VA. He is the co-founder of Recc Recordings alongside his longtime friend Ladarrious Prim. 

Lew began rapping as early as 10 years old. He began recording and making his own music after purchasing the first rap album he ever bought with his own money, Lupe Fiasco's "Food & Liquor". He quickly fell in love with the craft of songwriting, and even more with the ability to convert it into a dope visual.  He released 3 mixtapes between his time at Green Run High in Virginia Beach, and Howard University in DC. Before leaving Howard he seized the title of 'Howard's Hottest' at the competition held by the University's radio station.

His first album 'Saga One' represented, in a sense, the boy becoming a man as an artist. The albums lead single 'Whole Squad' took off on the local VA scene in the clubs and radio stations. The single would make it all the way to NBA arenas in Portland. Another huge record of the album "How You Feelin' ?" would produce a classic video that reenacted 'The Cosby Show'. The video and record went on to be featured Apple Music by Ebro Darden, saw widespread radio coverage from Detroit to New York to Atlanta, and received praise from Interscope artist Royce Da 5'9 on his personal IG page. It was also posted to WorldStarHipHop and rung in over 22,000 views in a day. He would round out his run with the album opening for Rick Ross, T.I., Oddissee, and Busta Rhymes.

Lew released 'Saga Two' in March of 2019 following the lead of his powerful single "Motherland". Shortly after he dropped a very creative visual for a dark  record off the album titled 'Blade Sharp/Sims', featuring Lew himself as a Sims character in the videos latter half. This Saga was due to represent and display Lew's versatility as an artist. He covers many lanes as an artist very well from traditional lyricism to the melodies in modern day Hip-Hop. Lew is a promising artist sure to make more waves in the near future.
