Kodak Black is one of the most controversial artists in hip-hop right now. When it comes to his job, Kodak makes no compromises and continues to rule the music industry. Amid criticism from NBA YoungBoy and Meek Mill, Kodak Black confirmed that artists should ink deals with Atlantic Records.
Following his gift of an 1800 Block chain to fellow label member Ed Sheeran, Kodak Black turned to Twitter on Monday, February 28 to encourage other artists to sign with Atlantic Records and join him. The plainly-worded comments come shortly after other rappers like Meek Mill and NBA YoungBoy accused Atlantic Records of blackballing them, with both rappers being quite public about Atlantic’s offenses on social media.
“Why black ball me I’m the good guy !!!?? I was going #1 two weeks straight with a mixtape so they took it down off the charts. I don’t give a fuck you still can’t stop me don’t sign to Atlantic if you a artist they not gone support you especially if you live a certain way.”
“So look I made Atlantic records 100’s of millions and let them rape me out out Roddy a artist they came to me about in jail … they still saying I can’t drop music until 9 months after my last album got blackballed.”
Kodak’s decision to publicly promote Atlantic is strange, especially since he raised some eyebrows by including Lil Durk as the lone artist on his recent album Back For Everything. Due to Lil Durk’s recent rivalry with NBA YoungBoy, several fans mistook Durk’s appearance on Back For Everything for Kodak taking sides.
“Kodak and NBA gon beef next once he see Durk the only feature on his new album.”
“Kodak album only feature is lil durk we never getting another Kodak x Youngboy again.”
During an interview on DJ Akademiks’ Off the Record podcast in October, Kodak denied his involvement in the feud, instead stating that he was a fan of both musicians.
“Both of them boys make great music. YoungBoy, he like a lil bruh. Durk’s great, too, he makes great music. As long as a n-gga don’t come find me and make me feel like I gotta pick no sides or no crazy shit, I ain’t saying nothin’. It’s music at the end of the day.”
