Hennessy & Rap have built a strong relationship and share a history of mutual creative collaboration. Through the years more swag has been shared between these two than rappers have sung about. So in order to introduce new ways for the well-known cognac brand to be a part of this 98 Oldsmobile, Polish hip-hop artists tasted Hennessy cognac-based cocktails and answered some surprising questions.

First out was Kizo – a relative newcomer on the Polish hip-hop stage. The elegant chav, as he so nicely described himself, had the best year in his career 2019 releasing a well-received album called “Pegaz”. Starting numerous collaborations with the biggest in the genre, he still remained humble, giving himself a 7 when asked “On a scale from 1-10, how good do you think your technique is?” During the interview, Kizo also shared his favourite dance move and enthusiastically sang his favourite karaoke song “Chacaron macaron digi digi dong”, all while tasting five different Hennessy Very Special cognac drinks.
