Kodak took to his Instagram Story on Tuesday, writing, “21 do his thing I give him credit where its due, but don’t come for me [talking] ’bout my album sales homie that ain’t gangsta!” he wrote. “You n***as know what I been thru in this shit. And you n***as had a whole consistent run with no hiccups [for real] and y’all 30 years old plus! I’m a yung n***a doin this shit since I came in the game. I was in and out of jail. And y’all still aint really doing [nothing] where I gotta catch up! I’m doing pretty dam good for myself still like I aint never been nowhere! Imagine if I didn’t tho.”
“But let’s see how this shit go now that I been home and I’m consistent with this shit,” he concluded.
“Where all y’all fans be at when these niggas drop albums,” 21 wrote in the tweet that seemingly prompted Kodak’s response.
The two rappers have been going back-and-forth for days, with Kodak slamming 21 on Monday for calling Nas irrelevant in a Clubhouse chat.
“This motherfucker talking about Nas irrelevant,” Kodak said in an IG Live. “How the fuck Nas ain’t relevant, homie? N***a smoking dick because of Drake. We from the projects. We from the trenches. We don’t give a fuck about no fucking...you did a Drake. We salute Drake. We love Drake. OK, whatever. Fam, folks smoking dick. Nas that n***a.”
21 later tried to clear up his own commentary regarding Nas.
It appears that some of the discourse between Kodak and 21 derives from 21 saying he can out-rap every other rapper from the 2016 XXL Freshman class, which both he and Kodak were featured in.
“Nobody from that Freshman cover [could] beat me in no Verzuz,” 21 said in a Clubhouse conversation. “Nobody.”
Kodak later responded in an IG Live, “That’s how you should feel, know what I mean? But you know I always put myself first over any n***a, any day. That’s cap,” he said.
“I’m smoking Kodak, 21 fired back. “Nah, Kodak got some shit though, it just depends how a n***a play it. He acting like I ain’t got that shit, that’s what be the problem. He forgetting, I don’t know what n***a thinking. Before all this Drake shit, I been having hits. Been having diamond songs and shit.”
