As reported earlier this month, security staff at the Mahalia Jackson Theater for the Performing Arts in Louis Armstrong Park were supposedly placed on "high alert" following Kodak's exchange with Wayne's daughter Reginae Carter. That back-and-forth stemmed from Kodak's flagrant Weezy comments at LIV in Miami, when he said the 36-year-old icon "should've died when you was a baby."
In a TMZ report at the time, the New Orleans Police Department was said to have also been enlisted for security assistance.
In an Instagram update late Wednesday, Kodak revealed that—given the circumstances—he could have simply taken the money and called off the show. Instead, he's moving the proceedings over to the House of Blues.
"New Orleans, Louisiana, to all my fans or whatever you wanna call it," Kodak said in the video. "I will be at the House of Blues instead of the Mahalia Jackson Theater and stuff. You know, they really wanted to shut my show down and stuff like that but, you know, I wasn't going for it. I'm like, 'Nah, man. I need to do this show because these people over there wanna see me.' They need to see me because I wanna see them, too." The show is set for Thursday night.
Weezy, meanwhile, has remained silent in all this.
Back in 2017, he and Kodak linked for the Ben Billions-assisted "Codeine Dreaming" despite Kodak having previously retweeted a fan's assessment that he's "the Lil Wayne of this generation." That same year, Kodak publicly challenged Tunechi to a boxing match.
