Cody Ryan Stephenson, better known by his stage name CodeMan, is a White-American rapper, audio engineer, and songwriter from Traverse City, Michigan. CodeMan began rapping, writing, and recording music at age 15, and gained local notoriety by performing original songs during his high school dances and at local concert venues. International radio personality, Crisco Kidd, has hosted alongside CodeMan at various cancer fundraisers and hosted CodeMan's mixtape "The Heart of Hip-Hop." "I support this man. He has a vision, dreams and heart. Since day one, I could see the determination in CodeMan's eyes. I have felt his story and I want to see my man win and that's exactly what he's doing. He is the definition of 'determination.'" Currently, CodeMan is getting ready to release his first digitally worldwide release album, "Some of All of It." The first single, "Wrong One (feat. SIX)," is already a single worldwide release and available on iTunes, AmazonMP3 and all other digital retail stores. Back in mid-January, he released a music video for the single on YouTube, which has been advertised on websites such as MTV, Billboard, Pitchfork, Rolling Stones, Vibe, XXLMag, The Source, Pandora, YoungMoneyHQ, and more. Born with a congenital heart defect, CodeMan underwent seven open-heart surgeries throughout the first eighteen years of his life. In 2007, he suffered a forty-minute seizure, resulting in cardiac arrest. As a survivor, one of his biggest goals as an artist is to start a charity in his name, and helping children with heart conditions similar to his own. Being involved with charitable events such as Relay For Life and other fundraisers in the past, CodeMan teamed up with international, music-centric cancer charity, Love Hope Strength. Currently, each sale that his worldwide single, "Wrong One," engages, 50% of the proceeds go towards the charity. While attending college at Northern Michigan University in Marquette, MI, CodeMan became, as some would say, a "local celebrity." He was the president of NMU's Hip-Hop Coalition, leading a team of students and aspiring Hip-Hop artists. CodeMan teamed up with local female disc jockey, DJ MO, and they hosted at The Mixx (Now known as The Verabar) every Friday and Saturday night, giving recognition and publicity of his music. CodeMan has performed shows with Chiddy Bang, Ying Yang Twins, Lil' Flip, Paul Wall, Drew32, Whitney Peyton, and more. His passion for music, not only as an artist but also as an engineer, has helped him become the full package. Not only has he been able to build a solid foundation based upon his love for music and writing, he has also gained the knowledge and skills through education that have set him on a path toward an incredibly successful career in the music industry.
