Born in Dallas, Sir Coopa grew up in the hood of Oak Cliff. As a child, Coopa had an insatiable talent for music ingrained in him. He constantly sang and danced in many home videos, birthday parties, reunions, & events.
At 13, Rodney felt a strong urge to channel and place his "many ideas" to paper, and began writing. After witnessing a witty bunch of kids, huddled in a group making beats with pencils and rhyming words, he was fascinated with the creative, hype and energy of freestyling. Coopa soon found himself within the huddle- rhyming with the rest of 'em.
Influenced at the time by artists, Lil Wayne and area rapper Tum Tum, he developed an art for coming up with rhymes off the top of his head and landing creative punchlines. He has since continued to strive and further develop his skills, receiving great recognition amongst his peers.
Performing at high school pep rallies and parties, he was moved, and fed off the adrenaline of the crowds. Coopa then took the same adrenaline-fed frenzy with him, while furthering his own education-performing on several campuses, clubs, and venues. While in college, he studied Radio/Film, while producing and directing his first video I'M SO COLD. During this time, he also released his first mixtape, entitled, "Neva Saw Me Comin'".
"My ultimate goal with music is to have an impact on the lives of others. Of course, naturally, you aspire to gain recognition by the masses and acquire a deal of wealth, but if thats all you're seeking, then what sustenance are you contributing to your life? Music isn't the only avenue for that. This is my life- It is what I feel I do best, enjoy, and I'm sharing my gift with the world."--Sir Coopa
