Meek Mill’s reaction unfolded within the confines of DJ Akademiks’ comment section, prompted by Kodak Black’s explanation of his decision to collaborate with 6ix9ine, the controversial artist known for his public involvement in a federal racketeering case as a cooperating witness.
In a candid online exchange, Meek Mill conveyed his apprehension, stating, “I’m at a point where I’m almost reluctant to be identified as a rapper any longer.” This sentiment arose after Meek Mill delved into Kodak Black’s recent appearance on the popular podcast “Drink Champs,” where Kodak offered a candid defense of his partnership with 6ix9ine for their joint track, “Shaka Laka.”
Kodak presented two primary arguments to support his collaboration: the substantial financial gains he would secure and the geographical distance of Tekashi’s legal issues from his home base in Broward County, Florida.
Reflecting on his initial reaction to the collaboration, Kodak shared, “When they first hit about it I was on some shit like, ‘Hell yeah, what the f**k?’ It wasn’t nothing to think about. There wasn’t anyone to call like, ‘Should I do this?’ There was no hesitation, no need to consult anyone about it.” Kodak attributed the inception of this partnership to Wack 100, who assumed Tekashi’s management duties in the previous year.
Kodak continued, “He confirmed and got that to me like three months later. They asked another n***a, and the other rapper said, ‘Yeah’ at first, and I guess whatever n***as be in bruh ear convinced him to change his mind.”
“They f**k with me because I gave my answer, and that was that. Ain’t nothing to think about. That’s an M homie. One song. Like, what the f**k
In response to concerns about Tekashi’s past, Kodak Black asserted, “I understand the value of a dollar. $100 is still $100. A band is still a band. I don’t even know the n***as he told on, and I ain’t even from over there. N***a, that’s y’all rat!”
