Cozz sat down with XXL to speak about hostile confrontations with police, linking up with Kendrick Lamar for “Hustla’s Story” and why he feels like a savior of hip-hop lyricism.
Firmly based in West Coast rap, South Central native Cozz was born Cody Osagie, a birth name that also became the title of his calling-card single.
Uploaded in early 2014, his introspective cut “Dreams” hit the net hard and impressed rapper J. Cole, who signed Cozz to his Dreamville imprint.
The track landed on Cozz’s 2014 debut, Cozz & Effect, which also featured the Meez-produced single “Cody Macc.”
How Kendrick Lamar and Cozz linked for "Hustla's Story"
Cozz season is upon us, with his debut release, ‘Effected’. The album features contributions from Kendrick Lamar, Garren, Currensy, and Dreamville’s own J. Cole.
