Just when you thought the world of rap couldn't get any sadder, this week, along comes Kodak. Yes, that's right the recently paroled performer has been under fire after making some tasteless comments about actress Lauren London following the death of her longtime boyfriend and Hip Hop icon Nipsey Hussle.
Kodak Black has been known to stir up controversy and it seems that his chronic foot-in -mouth syndrome has finally landed him in irreparable turmoil. Could this latest faux pas be the final nail in his coffin?!
Check out the FULL story below from NBC News:
During a live broadcast on Instagram on Saturday, Kodak announced his intentions to romantically pursue London, with whom Hussle had a young son.
"I’ll be the best man I can be for her," Kodak said. "I’ll give her a whole year. She might need a whole year to be crying and s--- for him."
He continued: "I ain’t trying to shoot [my shot] at her. I’m saying, listen. She can do two, three years. I’ll try to be like the friend if you need to holla or a shoulder to lean on. She can call my line."
The comments were met with swift backlash, including from rappers The Game and T.I. and Justin Credible, a disc jockey at Los Angeles radio station Power 106, who pledged to no longer play Kodak's music.
"We stand with the family of Nipsey Hussle and are appalled by the disrespectful and poor comments made by Kodak Black," Justin Credible said Saturday. "With that, Power 106 will not support Kodak Black’s music."
Later Saturday, Kodak issued an apology in a live broadcast on Instagram.
"If I disrespected you, Lauren London, in any shape or form, I'm sorry, even though I didn't," he said.
