AceShowbiz - Kodak Black wants that same level of appreciation as what NBA YoungBoy a.k.a. YoungBoy Never Broke Again receives. The Pompano Beach native has launched an expletive-laden tirade after the Baton Rogue artist appeared to confirm he signed a $60 million deal with Atlantic Records ahead of the release of his upcoming album.
"August 5th this Friday pre-order now 'the new lil top with surprise feat/don't wanna miss this classic with @atlanticrecords @artistpg now we came in the game," YoungBoy posted on his Instagram Story. "@mikecaren I appreciate you for that phone call @itsep I am on now 60 million dollar n***a you lil puppies August 5th 'The Last slimeto' pre-order now."
Seeing this, Kodak is clearly jealous as he similarly wants to get out of his current deal in order to secure a similar paycheck as YoungBoy. He went on Live to express his feelings. "Lil YoungBoy, he bout to fulfill his deal. I'm fulfilling my deal too. I definitely can't let him be out his deal and moving on and getting to that real, real bag and I just be sitting back and still in my f**king deal. No! I'm done too," he said. "I see jit come out with a $60M s**t. I need my $60M."
In a following Live, he accused labels of locking young artists into "rookie contracts," even after they've become bigger stars. "I know what's going on with these labels and how they be taking advantage of young n***as and s**t," he added. "N***as be still in they rookie deals… But you on to that big bag… I ain't still gonna be in my s**t. N***as showed that they in competition with me."
The 25-year-old also clarified that he wasn't dissing YoungBoy and is just fighting for what he feels he deserves. "Everything that all these rap n***as doing … I f**k with Lil Durk, I f**k with Drake, I f**k with Lil Baby, I f**k with all these n***as, [but] I ain't finna let none of these n***as just be shooting past a n***a, homie. I'm getting out my deal and I'm finna get that big ol' bag," so he claimed.
He went on stressing, "God forbid, even if it be jail, prison, all that s**t in a n***a future, I'm still gon' have me a big ol' bag, ya heard me? So I ain't trippin' on what none of these n***as doing."
