PawPaw Rod on Identity, Self-Care, and Weed | Close Friends


Musicians are plentiful, but true artists are few and far between. With sophistication, a unique sense of expression, and a musicality that defies his humble age, alt-R&B prodigy PawPaw Rod has proven to be a name that will outlast expectations.  

With his new euphoric single “Is It Magic?” and promising album on the way, PawPaw Rod lives in devotion to metamorphoses, only letting himself get comfortable with the uncomfortable. We got up close and personal with the artist, exploring his ever-evolving relationship with identity, self-care, and most importantly, weed.
