“Me and Drake, we got some more music,” Kodak said. “It’s really on like whenever bruh might feel like he ready and stuff. They be like, ‘Is we gon’ drop the album? We gon’ do this?’ It’s really on him. We got a lot of songs though.”
Drake and Kodak have been fans of each other’s work for years. Back in January, the 6 God commented on Kodak’s Instagram Live session that he was “really all that for this generation and the next one if we being honest.” In 2018, Drizzy called Kodak’s Dying to Live album one of his favorite projects of “the last five years,” and texted him further praise by describing his “purpose” as “so pure.”
Kodak had previously suggested a collab album in 2020, writing in Drake’s IG comments, “I Am Your Biggest Fan Sir. … If We Can’t Do A Whole Album Together, I Never Want To Do A Song With You Sir.” When Black dropped off Haitian Boy Kodak last May, Drizzy again showered him in praise, saying, “Man you always give me that inspiration...Real POET...Oracle. … Man let’s do some music for sure. But for real you really on another level.”
Kodak Black Day went down on June 11, the rapper’s 25th birthday, in his hometown of Pompano Beach. The lineup included performances from Lil Durk, Moneybagg Yo, EST Gee, Rylo Rodriguez, Yungeen Ace and others. Travis Scott and French Montana also surprised festival-goers as special guests, and organizers took to Instagram after the festival to applaud the sold-out celebration that included “no casualties.”
The festival comes after the “Super Gremlin” artist was honored with his own day by Broward County Commissioner Dale Holness in 2021.
Per TMZ, Kodak was moved by the honor and said upon receiving the proclamation that the moment meant more to him than a platinum record.
The proclamation also spoke to Kodak’s charitable work over the years, which was notable enough to convince President Trump to grant him clemency in 2020. Before being bestowed with his own day, Kodak attended a charity basketball game in Coral Springs that raised $5,000 in support of the Lippman Youth Shelter.
While new music with Drake is exciting, Yak has still been enjoying the spoils of his extensive work with Kendrick Lamar on the TDE rapper’s latest album Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers. Kodak has also been continuously rolling out visuals in support of his own album Back for Everything, which debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 back in February. Black’s fourth studio album also topped the Billboard Top Rap Albums and Top R&B/Hip Hop Albums charts and featured only one guest appearance, from fellow festival performer Lil Durk.
