Brody Griswold was born and raised in New York City, but moved to the Tampa Bay area at a young age. He was accustomed to the New York City Hip Hop movement. It's sound and culture would later translate into the music he would create. His Southern migration introduced him to a new, more bass driven, dance-styled sound, which was different from New York's more lyric-focused style of rapping. Later, he learned to embrace his new surroundings, and realized that he didn't have to choose between one style of music or another. "I wasn't hearing the music I wanted to hear, so I started creating it". Brody Griswold is a solo artist with bi-culturally fused, Northern lyricism and Southern soul.
