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.”

Cozz for LA Times

Cozz sat down with LA Times to talk Effected, Tour Life, Dreamville and more!

“I feel like it’s my best work to date,” the 24-year-old rapper said, “so I hope people receive it the same way. I just dropped the video for ‘Bout It,’ and a lot of people just now heard that and they’re going back and they’re, like, ‘Yo, I gotta listen to the whole album now.’ Just based off the reactions of certain songs… and the fact that they are saying, ‘Yo, I gotta listen to the whole thing now,’ it’s just great.”
