Born Cody Osagie, Cozz made his debut in 2013 with a video for his introspective song “Dreams.” The track caught the attention of J. Cole, who signed Cozz to his Dreamville imprint that year. In 2014, the rapper released his Cozz & Effect project, featuring the Meez-produced single “Cody Macc.” His debut mixtape Nothin’ Personal then arrived in January 2016. Later that year, Issa Rae shouted out Cozz in episode 4 of the first season of her HBO series Insecure.
