Soundz, whose real name is Kenneth C. Coby, was born in Milwaukee, and grew up in Decatur on the outskirts of Atlanta, Georgia. His parents relocated from Milwaukee to pursue careers in the music industry. While his parents worked, Soundz attended Redan High School, where he developed a passion for basketball. Although he aimed to become a professional basketball player, he was dismissed from the school team during his senior year.
He eventually used his time writing music and rapping, as he wanted to follow in the footsteps of Jay-Z. He initially called himself "Soundmind", then changed it to "Sounds" and eventually "Soundz".
Soundz worked with Ciara on her fourth studio album, "Basic Instinct" (2010). He and Tricky Stewart co-produced the album's third single "Gimmie Dat". He is also currently working on Ciara's upcoming fifth studio album, and debut release with Epic Records.
