Fresh off celebrating his birthday by dropping his new Happy Birthday Kodak EP, Kodak Black has gotten a gift for Cardi B.
Yesterday (June 11), Kodak jumped onto Instagram to show off a diamond bracelet he made for Cardi, whose 2017 breakout single, “Bodak Yellow,” borrows a flow Kodak showcased on his 2014 song “No Flockin.” Made up of shimmering diamonds, the bracelet spells out the Kulture, which is, of course, the name of Cardi B’s daughter with Offset. Another part of the bracelet spells out Cardiyak, which is combination of Cardi and Kodak’s rap names.
“Cardi B I Hope You Like Yo Bracelet #CardiYak 🤞🏾@iamcardib ❤️💙 #FeelinPeachy 🍑⚔️ @shynejewelers,” Kodak wrote in the caption for the post, which features a soundless video of the bracelet. Cardi B, whose latest single “Up” hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart earlier this year, has yet to respond.
While Kodak and Cardi have never interacted extensively in public, they are both label mates at Atlantic Records, and obviously, they’re linked by Cardi essentially sampling “No Flockin” for the song that made her a superstar. While some fans tried to accuse Cardi of ripping off the flow at the time, she’s said that Kodak receives some profits off the tune, and Kodak has generally done nothing but support Cardi in the time since the song was released years ago.
Buying this new bracelet is just the latest example of Kodak Black soaking up the positive vibes since having his prison sentence for firearms charges commuted back in January. Since being released, Kodak’s released both a new album and, as mentioned up top, a new EP.
At the time his sentence was commutated, a White House press release added context to Kodak’s release from prison. “Before his conviction, and after reaching a success as a recording artist, Kodak Black became deeply involved in numerous philanthropic efforts,” read one part of the release. “In fact, he had committed to supporting a variety of charitable efforts, such as providing educational resources to students and families of fallen law enforcement officers and the underprivileged.”
Now that he’s free, it’s clear that Kodak is making the most of things. See the bracelet he copped for Cardi B just below. Check out his new video for “Maffioso” when you’re done with that.
