Florida rapper Kodak Black dropped a four-track EP called Happy Birthday Kodak today, which happens to be his real birthday. On the song “Feelin’ Peachy,” the recently-freed artist name-dropped hip-hop superstar Cardi B, adding fuel to the longstanding claim that Kodak helped launch Cardi’s career.
Kodak Black’s New Track Includes Cardi B Mention
On “Feelin’ Peachy,” Kodak Black raps, “I been getting a lot of money lately / Cardi B, I hope you like your bracelet.” It wasn’t a diss — Kodak really did buy Cardi B an iced-out bracelet recently — but it comes off as a wink-and-nod to the role Kodak played in Cardi B’s rise to global fame. Kodak has a songwriting credit on Cardi’s breakout hit “Bodak Yellow,” which some fans even say she bit off of his song “No Flockin’.”
“Dogging on these b*tches, I got rabies / Hitting her from the back, I told her face me / I been getting a lot of money lately / Cardi B, I hope you like your bracelet / Shawty say I’m handsome for a Haitian”
