“One of Florida’s finest musicians”ELEVATOR

The Video:

With a elastic and gravelly voice capable of switching on a dime from melody to rhythm, Rod Wave is one of Florida’s most promising rising rappers. Bringing out the block in his hometown of St. Petersburg, Rod Wave celebrates his rise in “Yessir!,” his latest single. The video kicks off with grainy clips of Rod’s early career highlights, ranging from him rhyming in his high school while percussively banging on his locker to a sold-out concert, before Rod heads out to a local park with a massive squad. “Yessir!” is the latest video from Hunger Games 3, Rod’s December 2018 mixtape, following “Feel The Same Way,” which features an appearance from Moneybagg Yo.

Described as “street gospel” by guest artist Moneybagg Yo, Rod Wave has an inimitable style using his acrobatic vocal talent to inject lived-in emotion to his songs. Bounding between octaves and effortlessly switching from percussive rhymes to soaring melodies, Rod triumphantly celebrates his rising star status on “Yessir!,” reflects on his friends’ struggles with drug addiction on “Numb,” and flexes his pen game in the extended metaphor “Heart 4 Sale.” Featuring production from the likes of Go Grizzly, Drum Dummie, and others, Hunger Games 3 is a generous showcase of Rod’s supernatural sense of soul.

A rapper from St. Petersburg, Florida, Rod Wave started to build a regional buzz off the strength of his Hunger Games series and collaborations with peers such as GlokkNine. Two of his most recent singles, “Valid,” and “Heart 4 Sale,” have been bubbling in the South, with the former earning a place on Spotify’s Most Necessary playlist. Earning praise from Kevin Gates and Moneybagg Yo for his penchant for catchy melody, Rod is just getting started.
