About Don Kody
Don Kody aka Don Kody Got Slapz, an Ohio native, is the vaguely known guy who has a familiar type of aura about him. The journey first began as Big Indoe stepping in the studio life at the tail end of the music technology going from analog era to digital. The young rapper/songwriter quickly understood the need to produce original music so he quickly learned the tools he needed to begin those creations and it wasn’t long before a musical monster was born in the form of Kounty Bound Records. Don Kody’s music influences spans the realms of Hip-Hop, Smooth R&B, Miami Bass, Easy Listening to Boom Bap, Funk, and everything in between due to being the second youngest of 7 siblings sponging it all up. Kody developed into a multifaceted content creator (Finally! A word that describes what the creatives do) having intense passion for all things music related from rapping, producing, audio engineering, songwriting, to DJing. Kody used his musical efficiency to network his way into favorable situations which became his creating cost effective marketing ploy now known as cross-promotion. During Kody’s internet DJ wave, he got a niche following in the Bay Area markets from doing projects like the “Valley Kings Mixtape” in collaboration with DJ K-Tone of Core DJs/Shade 45, securing sponsorship from cigar brand Goodtimes USA for “That Good Mixtape”.
