A Summer Jam From Kodak Black

Listen to more Kodak Black.
By    August 6, 2015


Kodak Black, the best rapper ever named after a bankrupt photo company, comes out of jail swinging with a summer jam that sounds like Mannie Fresh and the ghost of Roger Troutman hosting a radio station funk fest. Boasting about meetings with Leila Ali, the Easter Egg soda sipping project baby of Pompano Beach does the money dance and the running man. Retro and modern. Tapping into the previous tradition of Juvie, Boosie, and Wayne. Kodak has next. We’ve known that for a year, but finally, the Owl Mafia played him on a Tech company radio show, and the music industry is starting to understand. I can’t wait until the inevitable Drake appropriation until his cool is siphoned off and the very solid major label album arrives with a resounding thud (shout out to the Migos)

But Kodak’s interview with Torii MacAdams continues to be the most popular one we’ve ran in the last year — including the recent one with Future Maimonides. Either way, I am here for the talkbox revival, between this and YG’s “Twist My Fingaz.” But don’t mistake this for EPMD or G-Funk second wind, this is a blend pushing it forward, mixing Southern bounce with West Coast pop lock swing. BBQ and check cashing music for the season.
