Cody CraZee American Rapper, Singer/Songwriter



Cody CraZee was born in Memphis, Tennessee on September 6, 1993. Cody was raised in Covington, Tennessee and is the son of Stella Meade and Billy Jones. At the tender age of three, Cody realized his passion for music and was encouraged by his grandmother Rene Meade by presenting him with his first guitar.



At the age of ten, Charlotte Jones whom Cody CraZee calls "MawMaw" taught him how to play the piano and Cody excelled tremendously.
John Paul who is the uncle to Cody was another great musical benefactor by teaching him every form of guitar he knew.
In Jr. High school, Cody was a vocalist in each school year choir.
It was safe to say Cody's musical roots runs deep.




Once Cody CraZee went to high school he formed a band called "Unpleasant Meadows" which eventually became "As Skies Cave In". After many band member changes, "As Skies Cave In" consisted of five talented musicians:
Cody CraZee on Lead Guitar,
Brandon Daughtery On Rhythm Guitar,
Christian (Nemo) Oldham on Drums,
Christian Walton on Bass, and Vocals,
Blake Jones aka NxVx as the Frontman.
NxVx and Cody CraZee are brothers from the same parents and have been doing music together as children.



The band "As Skies Cave In" had minor success for five years headlining "the New Daisy Theatre" on Beale Street in Memphis, Tennessee twelve times.
Due to mismanagement issues the band came to an end. In that moment, Cody CraZee decided that he would not stop pursuing his career nor become discouraged from the love of his music.


In Mid 2013, Cody CraZee met up with two EDM DJs (DJ Meltdown and DJ Driibonez). He quickly fell in love with producing EDM beats and entertaining crowds with his house and trap styles on the DJ Board. He continued being an EDM DJ for a year and a half. Then one day he caught himself jumping on the DJ booth and beginning to freestyle.The crowd goes crazy and multiple people began to tell him that he needs to record professionally.


Cody CraZee was on fire! He began freestyling  more with close friends and briefly formed a rap group named "PacMan Muzik" with close friends Torey Jackett aka Treez and Julie Clement aka Etha Angel. They pushed Cody CraZee to go to the next level and encouraged him to go record professionally and follow his dreams.


Eventually, Cody listened and met with a man he knew from his previous years in the band by the name of Reggie Clark.
Reggie is the CEO of Rocc Urban Sound based out of Memphis, Tennessee.
In a musical rebirth, Cody CraZee was not only an amazing Rapper but Singer/ Songwriter as well.



In 2015 Cody CraZee parted ways from the label and decided to start his own company by investing in a home studio and proceeded  to work as a musical engineer.
