A Los Angeles radio station said it will no longer play songs by Kodak Black after the South Florida rapper tried to flirt with Nipsey Hussle's girlfriend just days after his death. The radio station isn't alone in its stance.
His apology has also been criticised.
Black's Fort Lauderdale-based attorney, Bradford Cohen, who has represented Black in his prior criminal cases in Broward County, came to Kodak's defense on Instagram and urged Kodak's critics to remember that he's 21 years old. "And rest in peace to [Nipsey]", he said.
"If I disrespected you, Lauren London, in any shape or form, I'm sorry, even though I didn't", he said.
Fellow rappers T.I. and The Game recorded profanity laced videos slamming Black.
Black might have made the move to apologize because a radio station in Los Angeles has chose to no longer play his music.
But for some people, the reaction to his comments has come at a unusual time.
The controversy also comes at a time when Kodak, who changed his legal name from Dieuson Octave to Bill K. Kapri in 2018, awaits trial in SC on allegations he raped a woman in a Florence, S.C., hotel room.More news: Texas Tech basketball: Role players that must step up in Final Four
The trial has been delayed, but, if convicted, he could face up to 30 years in prison.
Kodak Black administered an apology on Instagram, which didn't seem honest after backtracking when he says he's sorry. It is believed the three men were rushed to hospital but Nipsey tragically died. I'll give her a whole year. "It's "You disrespected his woman". Later that day, DJ Justin Credible tweeted, "We stand with the family of Nipsey Hussle and are appalled by the disrespectful and poor comments made by Kodak Black".
"When you disrespect another man or his legacy, that's what they find wrong - not so much his attitude towards women", Pearl says.
Kodak also says she "can call my line".
When a friend is heard asking Kodak is "he's shooting his shot", Kodak backtracked and answered 'I'm not trying to shoot at her'.
These fateful words reportedly halted Holder in his tracks as he was fleeing the scene.
"People have to listen when women speak".
