In the hip-hop scene, Rod Wave is more than simply another singer-rapper. With his melodic vocal range and ferocious rhymes, this young singer opted for the “shock and awe” effect. His debut album, Ghetto Gospel, came out this month if he isn’t already on your radar. We’ve got Rod Wave’s wiki right here to give you a sample of this musician you need to keep an eye on.
Wave Rod is a Floridian
He was born Rodarius Marcell Green in Florida on August 27, 1998. He claims that his musical taste is a reflection of his upbringing in St. Petersburg. His early years and family are not well known. His father had served time in prison, and his parents divorced. He at least has one sibling.
Wave was detained on suspicion of possessing a weapon
Wave had a couple run-ins with the law before to starting his music career. Despite at least two arrests, he doesn’t seem to have served any jail or prison time.
At the age of 18, he was arrested for the first time in January 2017. He was accused of felony weapon possession on school grounds, according to records from the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office. Without having to post bond, he was freed on his own recognizance.
In March 2018, Wave was detained once more, this time for concealing a weapon. Without having to pay bail once more, the 19-year-old was let go.
Father Wave Introduced Him to Music
Music was the furthest thing from young Rodarius Green’s mind as he spent his childhood in and out of juvenile facilities. However, after his father was let out of prison, he wished to prevent his son from leading a life of crime.
His brother acquired a laptop for him, and his father purchased him his first microphone. With this basic set-up, the young musician started writing songs with lyrics drawn from his personal experiences.
A producer recognized his talent and urged him to share his tracks even though he only intended to do it for fun. He made his debut in the Florida music industry in 2016 with songs like “Heartbreak Hotel,” and he increased his local exposure through performances and other activities.
It was sufficient for Alamo Records to take notice of him and sign him in 2018. In November 2019, he released Ghetto Gospel, a debut LP produced by Kevin Gates, following the release of three mixtapes.
Extreme contrasts that blend together with how well he transitions between them include an R&B sweet singing voice and aggressive rapping abilities in his vocal range. But what made him renowned were his intensely private lyrics.
“Close Enough to Hurt,” one of the songs, is devoted to those who left him, and “Poison” talks about the nightmares that keep him awake at night.
