Marvia Lawrence aka KODA Is The One To Watch In The Midwest

Hailing from Alton Illinois, Rapper and media personality Marvia Lawrence aka King of Da A (KODA) has plans on putting his name in the history books right next to other famous Alton natives like the legendary Jazz trumpeter Miles Davis. His music is best described as reality rap and his lyrical content can be compared to few well known artist like T.I., Boosie Badass or Don Trip however his style is a blend of his early influences like Jay-Z, Lil Wayne and more notably. KODA jumped in the booth and created, “Real Alton” after a barrage of accusations from rappers of snitching in Alton. Dropping a day after Aprils Fool, this was anything but a joke or prank, Being the (King Of Alton) he just couldn’t let that slide so easy. Also having friends and family in other places like East Saint Louis, and Cahokia, Illinois and U City Missouri He recognizes it’s snakes and snitches in every city big or small. So paying homage to real ones in his city, he decided to celebrate those who he know to be “real ones” from Alton and give them their respect and flowers. “Real Alton” is Produced by platinum producer. Rob Stovall, the beat has Midwest vibe unmatched to any other out right now. With flutes and a baseline that pounds though your body, KODA gives you a personal perspective of “Real Ni**gas” from Alton displaying name after name of notable real ones, he crushes the accusations that Alton has all snitches.

Since the pandemic , KODA has been working with industry rappers and battle rappers by the likes of Mickey Factz, and DarrienSTL, and also with platinum producers like RMG Nu, RMG Faatkiid, Bossman Beats and many more. After gaining over 500k+ plays on sites like Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube and more, from songs like “Finesser” https://youtu.be/hPuO1csQ1BY and “Better Dayz” https://youtu.be/Nux4v0wDIgY the tone was set for his upcoming single “audio” Real Alton to show his separation from the other artists and continue his dominance over his city.
