St. Paul, MN - “People are chasing cash, not happiness. When you chase money, you’re going to lose.” [GaryVee]

Our priorities determine our focus. Fame and notoriety call out to us promising to give us our “best life”. If we’re not careful, we can live and breathe for the attention of others. We seek approval from strangers and find our identity in the thoughts of those who do not know us at all. There comes a point for everyone that is chasing “status” where they look in the mirror and cannot even recognize the image that they see. Is this how we are meant to live? Are we meant to soar? Have we experienced a Failure To Launch?

Minnesota hip-hop artist Kody Free tackles the concept of “blowing up” with three new records that compose his latest release. Failure To Launch is a short EP that packs a large amount of thought and processing into its listening experience.

As Kody explains, “It is a commentary on becoming something others want to hear.”

Taking a more mainstream approach, Failure To Launch sonically features jumpy, poppy beats. All of the proceeds from the project are going to help the homeless population in America via multiple different charities. The EP is available across digital music platforms beginning February 10, 2023.
