Kodak Black and Lil Wayne have had their differences in the past, as the Project Baby once dissed the 504 artist and even threatened to “knock him out” on social media. But late last month, Kodak seemed to change his tune when it came to the New Orleans hero. Posting to his Instagram story while walking on his roof, the “Tunnel Vision” rapper admitted a collaboration was in the works, “I got a song with Wayne. I fuck with Wayne, he inspired me to write my first rap.”
During a recent show, Kodak actually teased the upcoming Weezy collaboration, blaring a snippet of the trap record through the venue’s speakers for less than a minute before his DJ cut the song mid-verse. In the video below, you can hear the DJ yelling out “Y’all heard it first,” as Tunechi’s signature voice is heard over the beat with Kodak bopping across the stage with a cup in his hand.
Kodak has already released two solo projects this year with Project Baby 2 and Painting Pictures, in addition to a recent collaborative F.E.M.A. mixtape with Plies that dropped on Halloween. Meanwhile, “Tunnel Vision” gave the 20-year-old Pompano Beach, Florida, native his first top 10 entry on the Billboard Hot 100, as well as hitting No.1 on the Billboard Top Hip-Hop/R&B Album chart with Project Baby 2 in September.
