Kodak Black continues to face backlash after taking to Instagram Live in a crass attempt to hit on Lauren London.
After the Florida-born rapper took to IG to say: “Lauren London, that baby, though. She about to be out here single. She’s finna be a whole widow out here,” Kodak said in the session that went viral. “I’ll be the best man I can be for her. I’ll give her a whole year. She might need a whole year to be crying and shit for [Nipsey].”
The comments prompted LA’s Power 106 to ban his music.
“As a result of his poor judgment, Kodak Black’s presence and his music are no longer welcome at Power 106 in Los Angeles,” Justin Credible tweeted. “We stand with the family of Nipsey Hussle and are appalled by the disrespectful and poor comments made by Kodak Black. With that, Power 106 will not support Kodak Black’s music.”

Kodak’s comment was also bashed by many in the rap community, including T.I. and The Game.
“Kodak Black, you outta pocket, n—-. Fix that sh**, quickly, expeditiously, n—-. You outta pocket … If ain’t nobody else gonna say it, I’ma say it. If I see you, I’ma say it in your face,” TI said, according to HotNewHipHop.
On Sunday, Kodak Black posted another video that appears to be tone-deaf. In it, he partly apologizes to London, but also, defiantly, maintains he didn’t do anything wrong.
“If I disrespected you Lauren London in any shape or form, I am sorry… even though I didn’t,” Kodak says in the video.
It is unclear how much fallout Black will continue to get over this. It’s also unclear whether state prosecutors could somehow use this latest video to illustrate Kodak’s character in his upcoming rape trial. If the MC is found guilty on all of the counts he is facing, he could get up to 30 years in prison.
