A Conversation With Dreamville’s Cozz On Building His Fan Base, Overcoming Doubt & Getting A Shout Out On ‘Insecure’.
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.”
