Kodak Black said he wants to start the new year off with the release of a brand-new album.
When Kodak joined Yungeen Ace on Instagram Live earlier this week, he revealed that he was working diligently on the eagerly awaited album and that it would be released sometime in February.
When Ace inquired about what he was up to in the video, the “ZEZE” rapper said: “I’m just chilling finna drop this album next month.”
Kodak also name-dropped some artists that he’s collaborating with on the project and both rappers agreed that they need to find the latest R&B sensation similar to Mariah Carey.
Kodak’s last album, Back For Everything, was released in February 2022 and debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart, earning 60,000 album-equivalent units in its first week.
Last month, Kodak expressed upset over the fact he thinks he should have won numerous Grammys by this point in his career. Appearing in the studio with DJ Akademiks and YouTuber Adin Ross, he argued that his past success should have earned him some trophies.
Kodak said, “Y’all know I’m supposed to have a million Grammys. Ok, but fuck the Grammy’s, fuck the awards ’cause sometimes your shit don’t always come as a trophy.”
He continued: “Look how real n-ggas gotta get their awards. I count the Trump pardon — that’s my Grammy, that’s my award then.”
Kodak has been a strong admirer of Trump ever since the former president granted him a pardon in January 2021. He even bought a gold chain with a personalized Trump pendant.
He continued by saying that despite being one of the most popular songs of 2022, “Super Gremlin” failed to garner any nominations, which he finds incomprehensible.
Kodak said, “At first, I was sitting at this shit like, ‘Damn, homie. Y’all know ‘Super Gremlin’ was the hottest shit — still the hottest shit,”
“Even though a lot of them muthafuckas had good songs, why y’all still ain’t give me my shit, homie? What the fuck a n-gga supposed to do?”
Kodak also attacked the BET Awards in October 2022 after Latto won Song Of The Year for “Big Energy” instead of “Super Gremlin.”
“Everyone Needa Boycott @Connieorlando & @BET !” he wrote next to a photo of BET’s EVP and Head of Programming Connie Orlando. “Y’all Lame Af & Y’all Not Really For The People Fr ! BET WATERED DOWN !!! Y’all So Lame And Out Of Touch ! Y’all Definitely Not A Creditable Show !!!”
He added: “I Called It Out A Few Weeks Ago ! Ain’t No Way They Gone Let No MF Kodak Win A Dam Award Even If The Card Is Right In Front Of Them ! The Whole Point Of Everything Was Bout Woman Empowerment ! The Females Been Crying All Year Bout It ! @connieorlando Gave All Females Awards If They Deserved It Or Not !”
