Civil Scope: Kodie Shane
by Lupe LLerenas
One of Atlanta’s freshest, fiercest, and fieriest voices, Kodie Shane is a 19-year-old hip-hop maverick that has quickly become a unanimous fan and critical favorite.
Poised to be one of 2018’s biggest break-out stars, the First Lady of Lil Yachty’s sailing team offers a fresh take on hip-hop, with tightly-wound rhymes, clever lyrics and ear-worm melodies over buoyant, genre-blurring beats that have become her calling card.
Across 2016 and 2017, Kodie Shane made a name for herself by serving up a series of hits and critically adored projects. 2016’s debut EP Zero Gravity includes the fan-favorite “Sad” [feat. Lil Yachty]. Kodie spent 2017 creating even more music, with the ten-track Big Trouble Little Jupiter mixtape and seven-track Back From The Future EP.
With a debut album due in 2018, the KarenCivil.com team caught up with the rising star at SXSW in Austin, Texas where we talked about her music career, creative process, her hometown of Atlanta, and much more.
