Kodak Black is calling out Megan Thee Stallion over the origins of the “drive the boat” phrase.
On Monday (March 15), the “No Flockin’” emcee fired off several tweets questioning why he hasn’t received homage for creating the catchphrase, which was made popular by the Good News rapper in summer 2019. Without mentioning Megan’s name directly, Kodak suggested that he should’ve received $200,000 from her for using the slogan.
“‘You Know What, Ima Pull Up On Jit Wit Bout 200 Bands Or Sumn Since I [ran] Off Wit Da Man Quote Got Rich Off It & Ain’t Mention Em Nan Time.’ Who Shoulda Said Dat Twitter?” he tweeted.
“I’m Lit. I Ain’t Old & Washed Up Somewhere Hating On Young Niggas,” he wrote in a follow-up tweet. “I’m Jus Over Here Counting This Money, But Still Pointing Dat Shit Out. Y’all B On Dick!!! Make a whole career off of taking one Lil piece of my shit & I B Coming For My Money.”
Kodak then referenced a TV appearance Megan made last year where she credited herself for creating the “drive the boat” slogan. After the interview, the “Tunnel Vision” emcee — who was incarcerated at the time — expressed his disapproval on Twitter and his sentiments remain the same a year later.
“Baby ain’t have to go out her way to give my credit, but the opportunity came to her,” he tweeted Monday. “Instead, when they asked that question on TV smh and they be on some Black Lives Matter shit. Y’all don’t even be fa this shit fr.”
The Florida native reportedly first coined the phrase in early 2019 while he was on a boat asking the captain if he could drive. Megan used the expression later that summer to describe someone getting shots of liquor poured into their mouth.
“Especially Since He Just Getting Outta Prison And Black Lives Matter, So Let Me Pay A Lil Homage To Dude Throw It Back On Em Or Sumn,” Kodak concluded on Twitter. “Or You Know What? Ima Just Let Him Drive My Boat & Call It Even.”
