About Don Kody

Vowing to never succome to the heartless street life “The Y.O.” had to offer, Kody dove head first in music not only as a passion but a stress relief. Due dilligence its no surprise he developed into a multifaceted artist/producer with an educated street savy and clever wordplay displayed with any song topic. Kody’s production influences are embodied in his beats which resulted in he not having a “signature sound” mindful of the fact every region enjoy different sound takes on popular music so why be in a box?
