Mixtape: Rod Wave – Hunger Games 3
The St. Petersburg, FL-born Alamo/Interscope Signee Shares a Moving Collection of Soulful Trap Songs, Featuring Moneybagg Yo as the Only Guest Artist
“If you’re not familiar with the sounds of Rod Wave, he’s certainly one of the most talented acts to come out of Florida in some time.” – The Modern Life Mag
“One of Florida’s finest musicians” – ELEVATOR
Wielding one of the most distinct and expressive singing voices in Hip-Hop, Florida’s Rod Wave is a sharp writer with a supernatural sense of soul. Coming through with a brand new set of southern-fried rap songs, Rod Wave shares Hunger Games 3, his latest mixtape. Described as “street gospel” by guest artist Moneybagg Yo, Rod Wave has an inimitable style using his acrobatic vocal talent to inject lived-in emotion to his songs. Bounding between octaves and effortlessly switching from percussive rhymes to soaring melodies, Rod triumphantly celebrates his rising star status on recent single “Yessir!,” reflects on his friends’ struggles with drug addiction on “Numb,” and flexes his pen game in the extended metaphor “Heart 4 Sale.” Featuring production from the likes of Go Grizzly, Drum Dummie, and others, Hunger Games 3 arrives via Alamo/Interscope.
“I want people to know and feel my music from their core,” explains Rod Wave. “You’re going to relate emotionally to this project. It has happy songs, sad songs, street songs, songs about struggle, songs about relationships, songs about success, songs about critics, songs about winning, etc. No matter what you’re going through, there is a song of Rod Wave that will get you through it! It gets greater later! This project is all about God first and staying focused!”
A rapper from St. Petersburg, Florida, Rod Wave started to build a regional buzz off the strength of his Hunger Games series and collaborations with peers such as GlokkNine. Two of his most recent singles, “Valid,” and “Heart 4 Sale,” have been bubbling in the South, with the former earning a place on Spotify’s Most Necessary playlist. Earlier this month, Rod shared the moving video for“Jan2Jan,”a highlight from Hunger Games 2, his buzzing project released in May 2018. Earning praise from Kevin Gates and Moneybagg Yo for his penchant for catchy melody, Rod is just getting started.
