Kodak Black had a few choice words for D.R.A.M. and Lil Yachty this week. After posting a clip of him listening to the pair's Grammy-nominated song, "Broccoli", the 19-year-old Florida rapper expressed his frustration on Instagram over his slang being used by other rappers. 

“Man, what the f--k, man? “Who these ni---s is jocking my lil’ swag, man, talking bout broccoli, man," said Black. "Nah, I’m saying you n---as don’t smoke broccoli. Look for now on, man, I don’t smoke broccoli no more. I smoke cantaloupe since y’all square a-- n---as tryna jack the swag. I smoke cantaloupe now.”

Afterwards, Kodak posted a second video, in which he banned rappers from stealing the word he claimds to have coined back in his 2014 song "No Flockin'." “You n---as can’t say broccoli no more,” he said in the second Instagram video. “You n---as gotta say spinach or some sh-t. You n---as don’t smoke broccoli, y’all smoke spinach.”

Lil Yachty responded to Kodak's videos with a clip of his own on Instagram. The "1 Night" rapper said he was confused by the criticism, considering he always paid homage to his fellow XXL freshman when he performed the song. "Anytime before I perform the song “Broccoli,” I say shouts out to that n---a Kodak,” he said. "Second of all, I don’t even smoke broccoli. I don’t give a f--k about weed. That’s just how it is. I ain’t never been no square ass n---a. I address shit how it is. I showed all my respect, but n---a I ain’t never been no square, n---a.”

Later, Yachty went on Twitter and tweeted, "N---as hate me but ion care bout that I need my credit. I did too much this year. #respectme."

Meanwhile, Bay Area rap veteran E-40 claims he was the pioneer of the term "broccoli," also taking to Instagram to share a clip of his 1993 song "Practice Looking Hard" with the caption: "In 1993 I refer weed as BROCCOLI On my song " Practice Looking Hard " In 1998 I made a song called " BROCCOLI " On my Gold double album " The Element of Surprise " #PROBLEMSOLVED #BROCCOLIFuck beef get money!"
