Over a month ago, it was announced that Kodak Black signed Brooklyn rapper 22gz to his Sniper Gang imprint. Despite their geographic differences, the union made sense at the time, as 22gz spent a lot of time in Florida (he was exonerated of a second-degree murder charge in Miami). Their similar content matter and contrasting style make for an interesting pairing.
Last month, Kodak linked up with 22gz in Brooklyn to shoot a video, though not much information was immediately present.
Now the "Suburban" rapper is back with the finalized product. "Spin the Block," premiering above, features the Sniper Gang head honcho himself and is set against the gritty streets of Brooklyn. “This record 'Spin the Block' means a lot to me because where I come from this is like a major accomplishment getting to work with Kodak Black," 22gz tells Complex. "This track can hopefully get me where I need to be and I’m taking off from [where] there ain’t no going back. I was supposed to work with Kodak before I was signed but then he got arrested, but minor setback for a major comeback. He came home, we hit the stu, vibed out, and now here we are.”
The video finds the rappers "Blixky Twirling" and "Kodak Bopping" while trading verses filled with menacing, potent lyrics over a fast-paced, hard hitting instrumental. "Once I get up out the hood, I ain't coming back," 22gz declares, banking on the success of his new affiliation.
