It’s been an explosive week of promo for Kodak Black. After making headlines by walking out on Ebro in the Morning and his Hot 97 interview, the Florida-bred rapper crossed the finish line to release his highly anticipated sophomore effort on Friday (Dec. 14).
Dying To Live sees features from Travis Scott and Offset, who appeared on the chart-smashing “Zeze.” Kodak then connects with fellow Florida native Lil Pump for the first time on “Gnarly” and teams up with Juice WRLD for “Moshpit.” He made sure to properly homage to the fallen XXXTentacion on “Malcolm X.X.X.”
Coinciding with the release of his album, Black dropped another visual this week to his “Gnarly” collaboration with Lil Pump. The JD Films-directed clip takes on the mold of a ’60s black-and-white television show. A dapper Kodak dons a fresh suit and dances in the front lawn alongside the “Gucci Gang” artist throughout the celebratory flick.
Meanwhile, the 21-year-old touched on his awkward encounter with Ebro Darden during his interview with rival radio show The Breakfast Club Friday (Dec. 14). “I would curve that shit and say I don’t want to talk about that fuck n—a. Shit was going so good. I feel like people don’t want to see the happy Kodak,” he explained. “If I would have showed out, I would’ve scared away my money again.”
