With summer quickly approaching, a lot of people around the nation been putting in serious work at the gym getting their “summer bodies” in order and all. Honestly, summertime is one of (if not THE best) the best times of year to drop new music — simply because everyone is outside, windows down/sunroofs open, heavy beach attendance etc. With this in mind, Kodak Black picked the perfect time to drop off some new heat for us. While it’s probable he wasn’t aware of J. Cole dropping today as well, he’ll still have a ton of eyes and ears on his new Haitian Boy Kodak project simply because of who he is.
The Sniper Gang rapper recently caught some scrutiny from the Hip Hop community and its fans after pleading guilty to an assault charge through social media, but he is certainly one to win fans over with his new music. His first feature since recently getting out of prison (“Hit Bout It” with Lil Yachty) and being pardoned by Donald Trump (for falsifying documents to purchase guns) really set the tone for him and what he has in store for the rap game.
On Jan. 20, the day after his sentence was reduced, Kodak Black tweeted his gratitude, saying, “I Want To Thank The President @RealDonaldTrump For His Commitment To Justice Reform And Shortening My Sentence. I Also Want To Thank Everyone For Their Support And Love. It Means More Than You Will Ever Know. I Want To Continue Giving Back, Learning And Growing.”
This week, Yak caught the attention of thousands by getting a new tattoo in red ink over his eyelids. The ink spells out “Red Rum,” or “Murder” backwards. He also recently squashed his short-lived feud with Pooh Shiesty, so there’s a chance they could be working together on new music soon.
