Career: From Classes to Stardom
At the age of 14, Kodie began working as a writer for the Atlanta-based production studio “Greystone Park.” She was at some point in her early youth introduced to Coach K – the man behind some of the currently most successful rap names, such as Gucci Mane and the “Migos” group – who taught her how to perform. Under his mentorship (several years after she started), she met Lil Yachty and they quickly formed a connection. Yachty then invited her into his own collective called “The Sailing Team”, of which she is now the only female member. Concerning her discography, she has pushed out five albums thus far. When she was about to sign the deal with Epic Records, she wanted to use the name ‘The Don’, which is inspired by the 2013 romantic comedy drama film entitled “Don Jon.” However, she was unable to set this nickname, so she just went with what she had and thus chose ‘Kodie Shane’ instead. Her mixtape “2070” came out on the 9th of March 2016, consisting of 13 tracks, one of the most popular songs is entitled “Sad”, which she wrote at the age of 13. Her later works came out on June 11th 2016 (“Little Rocket”), December 2016 (“Zero Gravity”), January 17th 2017 (“Big Trouble Little Jupiter”), and lastly “Back From The Future” on August 25th 2017.

As for her romantic interests, being 19 years old, Kodie hasn’t yet come out with information about her love life, and she hasn’t been seen attending any events in a particular person’s company either.
