Kodak Black Details Commonalities & Relationship With Kendrick Lamar
During an interview with Spotify at Rolling Loud Miami last month, Kodak Black gave some insightful details about his relationship with the Compton legend Kendrick Lamar. They collaborated for the song “Silent Hill” off Kendrick’s latest album “Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers” which dropped this year. Kodak is also featured on interludes of other tracks from the high-selling 2022 release. “Me and him, we can talk and he understand me beyond the internet theories,” was a key statement Kodak shared with the interviewer.

Kodak & Kendrick’s Shared Commonalities
The two artists have quite a few things in common despite what many elitist fans from each fanbase may imagine. Even Kodak Black acknowledged it himself, “Me and Kendrick, we got a lot of little things in common that people probably don’t wanna understand.” A commonly overlooked example is that both artists are authentically from the streets, despite having unique and different lifestyles/viewpoints. He said, “You know, Kendrick from the streets for real, too. I fuck with that boy, I got a lot of love for him.” Additionally, both rappers are active Hebrew Israelites and have the astrological sign of Gemini. Regardless of any similarities and differences, their song Silent Hill is still one of the best songs this year:
More Songs From Both Rappers Together
Based on what Kodak shared in the interview and how highly Kendrick speaks of Kodak, their relationship does seem more genuine than other industry connections. I’d also add that stylistically, Kodak might even sound better alongside Kendrick’s cousin Baby Keem instead. Would you want another song from both mainstream rappers whether it’s for either of their catalogs? Although, Kendrick may not agree with me labeling the star as mainstream anymore.
