One of smoothest artists from Bama – Rod McCoy is BMI affiliated touring artist. As a performer he delivers a vibe quite contrary to trendy mumble rap and trap music themes. While focusing on manipulating the emotion of listeners, he delivers in a form that others may retract from exhibiting; usually based on lessons of life, wake and bake with Mary Jane or the art of storytelling. Although a free spirit, growing up as a preacher’s kid in the third coast molded Rod morally and sparked an eternal thirst for knowledge.
Born in Montgomery, Alabama and later transitioning between Atlanta and Detroit allowed the craftsman to be introduced to a wide array of musical styles. Aside from the constant barrage of gospel music throughout his mother’s residence, B.B. King and Johnny Taylor dominated most weekends when he was with his father’s side of the family atop the red dirt roads of Lowndes County, Alabama. Years later, artists like Eminem in Detroit and Gucci Mane in Atlanta, too secretly infiltrated the earphones of the rebellious teenager. A lifelong dreamer, Rod creates to inspire and delivers passionately throughout his craft. Comparable to sounds like Big KRIT, this is another southern emcee primed for his position in the king’s court.
