It looks like Kodak Black has been drafting some
heartfelt new material during his current jail stint.
One of the most promising young talents in rap today
is currently sitting in a jail cell. In April, Kodak Black
was caught by cops in a high-speed chase and was
charged with possession of drugs and a weapon. He was
able to make bail but was arrested on outstanding
warrants about a month later, and he's been locked up
ever since. While in jail, he's put out one of the year's
hottest tapes , Lil B .I.G. Pac, and he recently shared
the music video to one of its best tracks, "Can I."
Kodak's absence is certainly lamentable, especially
considering how much he had blown up right before his
latest arrest. But it's almost guaranteed that the 19-
year-old Pompano Beach native will have some special
music ready to go upon his release.
In a new clip of a live call with Kodak from his cell, one
can hear the incarcerated rapper deliver what sounds
like his next big hit. The recording is proof of his
songwriting skills, as Kodak sings a poignantly
melancholic rendition of a song that doesn't explicitly
refer to his current predicament but instead
encapsulates it with remarkable relatability.
See some particularly poetic lyrics from the song below.
"I'm goin' down the yellow brick road / But I don't
even know where I'm headed / Lately I've been turnin'
cold / Every day I'm tryna stay 10 toes down / I'm jus
tryna stay afloat / In that water, tryin' not to Drown"
Last month, it was reported that Kodak was given a
sentence of a remaining 120 days in jail. His records
had indicated a release date of Nov. 30 of this year,
though he is still facing potential charges of sexual
battery in South Carolina, so much is still up in the air
regarding the outlook of his eventual freedom.
