He turned his life around after his father got released from prison. His brother encouraged him to sing. Rod started singing early in his life. But he did not begin recording.
In fact, his colleague uploaded his first tracks. And after the tracks started turning heads, Wave decided to try it out.

2018 was his year. Thanks to his success and popularity he finally signed up with a big record label. In 2018, Rod signed with Alamo Records. With a record label behind him, nine of his new tracks reached at least a million streams.
At this point, he released the second and third installments of the Hunger Games mixtape.
In 2019, it was time for a debut studio album. Wave titled his first album Ghetto Gospel. The album featured 14 tracks and each one reached one million streams in the first two weeks. Ghetto Gospel proved Rod Wave has no limits to his talent.
