Rod Wave Biography
Born on August 27, 1999, Rodarius Marcell Green is an American rapper and vocalist better known by his stage name, Rod Wave. He has gained recognition as a pioneer of soul-trap music for his powerful voice and use of hip hop and R&B. His family is frequently the theme of his songwriting. His father and mother raised him. He was a student at elementary school when his parents got separated.
Rod and his mother struggled terribly to make ends meet. He would have to go to the streets to earn some money, involving himself in robbery and drug dealing. He also got arrested twice for his activities. His father remained a street fighter, and he was raised together with his brother though his brother’s name remains unknown. When he was only in primary school, his father was sentenced to 6 years for robbery.
In his early days, he used to listen to E-40, who was later featured on his song “Calabasas.” Also, he grew up listening to Chingy, Boosie Badazz, Kevin Gates, and Kanye West. He studied at Lakewood High School, a Public Secondary School located in the Southern California city of Lakewood. In 2017, he graduated from Lakewood High School.
The 2019 song “Heart on Ice,” which went viral on YouTube and TikTok and peaked at number 25 on the Billboard Hot 100, helped Wave gain recognition. Ghetto Gospel, Wave’s debut album, peaked at number 10 on the US Billboard 200. The single “Rags2Riches” off his second album, Pray 4 Love, reached number 12 on the Hot 100 and peaked at number 2 on the Billboard 200.

With the release of his mixtape Hunger Games Vol.1, Wave’s career got underway in 2016. Before joining Alamo Records, he independently released several mixtapes.

On March 6, 2021, he unveiled the track listing for his album SoulFly and went on to drop it on March 26 and features Polo G only once, on the song “Richer.” The songs “Street Runner” and “Tombstone,” which reached number 11 on the Hot 100, are also included on the album.
