Kodak Black continues to release high quality videos from his latest EP Haitian Boy Kodak. This week, it’s for the d.a. got that dope-produced cut “Maffioso,” a track that’s centered around so-called friends and family that Kodak couldn’t truly rely on:
“Thought you were mine for life, saying you gone ride for life, we grew up stealing bikes, I was on the back of your mongoose, I put pegs on the mongoose, got tears on her volcano they don’t care bout my struggles, I was calling my dog and them, they was unresponsive...”
Directed by Kutthroat Bill (Kodak himself), Skinny White Boi, and CottoOverDidIt, the accompanying clip for “Maffioso” begins with black-and-white footage of a young Kodak with his close compadres, who have resorted to stealing bikes. Things then fast-forward to present time, where the Floridian star and one of his partners are living the lavish life in a mansion, being served meals with stacks of money in view. Elsewhere, Kodak performs the track outside in front of a classic Ford Mustang, before packing its truck with a presumed enemy and having an unknown individual drive off into the night.
Haitian Boy Kodak follows last year’s Bill Israel, Kodak’s third official LP that made landfall while he was still incarcerated. That project saw 11 tracks with additional features from Gucci Mane, Tory Lanez, Jackboy, CBE, and Lil Yachty. Just prior to his incarceration, he released that album’s predecessor Dying To Live, which saw 16 cuts and contributions from Lil Pump, Travis Scott, Offset, and Juice WRLD. Dying To Live proved to be Kodak’s best-selling to date, earning him his first number one on the charts with 89,000 album equivalent units sold during its first week of release. Kodak’s next body of work, titled Happy Birthday Kodak, is expected to be released this Friday (June 11).
