063 - I'm Kodak Black and Membitta...Timmbuba...Reewitto...Sunnaaa...!
In this episode, we'll talk about somebody from the new school, modern music maker, a SoundCloud rapper and he's from the wildest state in the union, Florida! The son of a Haitian immigrant, he was raised in the Golden Acres housing project in Pompano Beach. At a young age he started rapping at a local trap house, after school. He starts fighting and breaking into houses, shortly after he is expelled from school, in the fifth grade.
After dropping out of middle school, he breaks into the music game as one of the Brutal Youngnz, he then joins the Kolyons and finally releasing his solo mixtape, Project Baby in December 2013. When Drake posts a video of himself dancing to your song, "Skrt", you know you've made it! Two years into the game, he can't shake his past of youth detention stays and probation. Breaking habits is hard and even more so when you're young and famous. After being arrested numerous times, he ends up in Broward County Jail in Florida, and then he was transported to South Carolina to serve some time there, then back to Florida again, and at some point he ends up at a high security prison in Kentucky where he is today, we'll get there.
He's got a string of songs and albums on the Billboard Charts, He's made Instagram Live videos starring himself breaking the law with guns, drugs and his kids. He broke house arrest to walk professional boxer Adrien Broner to the ring. He's a mumble rapper to the highest degree. Sit back, get a snack, there's a lot to unpack when it comes to the fact there's no one like Kodak Black!
