Kodak Black officially dropped his Project Baby 2 project Friday, after teasing the new body of work for the better part of a week. While the Future-assisted “Boost My Ego” collaboration, which Kodak used to announce Project Baby 2, is conspicuously absent, the project’s official release has been supplemented with a video for the single “Transportin’.”
The clip finds Kodak in some familiar surroundings, as he appears to split his time between a studio and the new home he bought at the top of the year. Orange and green are dominant themes, as the Florida native opts for a University of Florida racing jacket and a black and orange bulletproof vest to compliment the orange Lamborghini and Audi luxury vehicles that also appear.
In terms of green, the recent “money phone” backlash and subsequent resurgence may or may not have influenced Kodak’s choice to showcase bundles of cash in his backpack, under his bed, and in a money counter.
“What the lick read/Baby come and lick me/V12 how I’m riding in a six speed/I be ballin’ on you niggas, out of this league,” Kodak raps over a familiar sample of Isaac Hayes’ “Hung Up On My Baby.”
Project Baby 2 is now available on digital platforms, and judging by a recent tweet, Kodak is happy with everything except one small aspect of the roll out.
“I Appreciate @AppleMusic Sincerely Even Tho Y’all Need 2 Edit My Description 2 Florida..” Kodak tweeted, in reference to his Apple Music description calling him “Miami’s next great rapper.”
