"For the next two hours, performers Nate & Hila rapped on topics like plastics ("I refill. I reuse. Plastic bags, I kindly refuse") and existential ecological reckoning ("Is Earth other than us, self-balancing steadily? Or is she our mother and we're fucking her oedipally?"). It was a New York taste of eco-hip-hop, a small but growing genre forged by artists bent on spreading environmental advocacy through music." – Rachel Nuwer, The Magazine of the Sierra Club

On Monday (March 16), the duo released their (slightly NSFW) music video for “Die for That P–sy (Bee Sex),” which puts a humorous spin on gender roles and honeybee advocacy with the duo themselves playing the flying insects. – Mia Nazareno, Billboard

"As both individual artists and as a hip-hop team, community consciousness and political engagement moves the breezy content of Nathan Dufour and Hila the Killa’s music, while genuine warmth and joy sets the sails." – Dave Jamson, Meow Wolf
