Smoke Codeine is an 20 year old artist out of Raleigh, North Carolina who’s an aspiring rapper and been producing since middle school. He found his voice for rapping as of late last year, and his music influences doesn’t necessarily include other artists, but rather various styles of rapping which includes soft, monotone, angry, and abrogate. He was heavily influenced by EDM production and has now transformed himself into a more upbeat and melodic rapper.

Smoke Codeine released his latest hit called “No Flights” and he incorporated his multiple different stylistic inspirations and fused a refreshing mix that produced an evergreen sound. Smoke Codeine raps in a trendy, staccato delivery with a slight soft whispery aura surrounding the texture of it. It sort of reminded me of a hit The Migos will do!
