Kodak Black, is one of Hip-Hops’ most interesting, youngest and fearless rappers today. Before his arrest last year in South Carolina, for some pretty horrific allegations, the 19-year-old had released popular mixtapes, such as ‘Project Baby’, ‘Institution’ and ‘Lil B.I.G. Pac’.
Kodak’s latest offering “Tunnel Vision”. Produced by Metro Boomin’ and 808 Mafia boss, Southside, the two producers provide the teenage rapper with a dark, melodic and melancholy beat, primarily supported by jumpy strings, quick-paced hi-hats and the new favourite Trap instrument (a Flute).
Kodak shares to his fans the rise of his career, looking for moral support from a “Bih” and that he had to follow what his mum told him; to not allow the stigma of POC and see himself in a penitentiary.
While Kodak’s voice is light and perfectly matches the beat, his flow is off at times and makes it difficult for me to see how using a ‘geeked-up’ flow like that could’ve worked over the beat. However, it does and ultimately, the song bangs.
