“The 19-year-old can rap at a brisk pace like an ATL rapper, hit a falsetto like a R&B singer, and often digs deep to unleash a gravelly voice that sounds like he’s the lead in a country rock band…he already possesses one of the best voices in the South.”Pitchfork

If you’re not familiar with the sounds of Rod Wave, he’s certainly one of the most talented acts to come out of Florida in some time.” – The Modern Life Mag

“One of Florida’s finest musicians” – ELEVATOR

19-year-old Rod Wave makes versatile music that is designed for maximum relatability. At a time when so many rappers and singers write their lyrics about the luxury lifestyle, the St. Petersburg, Florida native says that would not be true to his roots. “I don’t come from that; I come from the Hunger Games,” he says of a grow-up-fast environment. His three-part series takes its name from Suzanne Collins’ acclaimed novels. Rod related to the theme of teenagers fighting for survival in a dystopian city. “We didn’t ask to be here; we were born here,” says the artist. “Now I have to get out there in the cold world, and I have to make money for myself and provide for my family.”
