After spending over six months in jail, Kodak Black is back. In his first week out, he dropped a song, “There He Go,” as well as an accompanying video, and he has since collaborated with Yo Gotti (“Weatherman”) and Dej Loaf (“All I Want for Christmas”). And that’s just the beginning. The 19-year-old Pompano Beach rapper was recently spotted in the studio with the most sought-after producer in the land: Metro Boomin.
It’s really a surprise that these two haven’t linked sooner. Metro’s chemistry with young street rappers is second to none, especially when it comes to guys who bring forth nuanced real-life narratives. One can hear a nice preview of one of their collabs — potentially entitled “Tunnel Vision” — in the blow video. The beat has Metro’s genius written all over it — sprightly flutes, a moody guitar melody, and hard, pulsing drumwork. From hearing the hook alone, this could be Kodak’s first post-prison hit. Hopefully we’ll get to hear the full song soon, and if we’re really lucky, then Lil Kodak and Young Metro will have plenty more where this came from.
