Amongst BBY Kodie’s most popular releases is the “Im Throwed Freestyle,” a self-assured take on Paul Wall’s Houston classic, rooted in Kodie’s mission statement-chorus, “the South gon’ hold it down.” Spreading this allegiance across his prolific catalog thus far, including four projects from 2019 alone, the Texas representative has built a dedicated following, selling out rooms across the state and gaining acclaim for his eccentric, intense sound, designed in large by Houston producers NoFriends and White Forest.

The energy at BBY Kodie's shows lies somewhere between punk rock and hip-hop, and he blends this energy with a Houston-informed, high fashion aesthetic. Kodie has also turned heads in the past with rejuvenated takes on classic songs from Kelis’ “Milkshake” to Benny Benassi’s “Satisfaction,” but at his best, the budding talent operates on a high-octane field of his own, confident as hell and raring to bring the world to Houston.

Be on the lookout for more from Kodie throughout 2020, and check out his most recent release, NoFriends & Kodie 2 in February's edition of our The Rotation feature.
