Still nursing a shooting wound from Superbowl Sunday, rapper Kodak Black is surprisingly in good spirits. The currently walker-bound rapper talked about the incident with The Breakfast Club host Charlemagne on Wednesday. “Nobody was like after us, or we was after them,” said the rapper. “No hit or no crazy sh-t like that. It was just one of them nights.”

He said he has no issues laughing at himself or the situation.

Regarding the shooting, Kodak said, “That’s what I get, you know what I’m saying?” When asked to clarify, he continued saying, “I did a lot of sh-t Charlemagne, I’ll take my lick you heard me?”

Prior Conflicts and Legal Troubles

The 24-year-old has a long list of involvement in crime and rap beef. Cops arrested Kodak in 2016 after he fled police and illegally owned a weapon as a convicted felon. Later, he was sentenced to probation after a sexual misconduct case. In 2019, he received a 46-month-sentence in prison after forging documents related to a weapons purchase. However, he only served a portion of time after former President Trump commuted his sentence.

There have been well-documented conflicts involving Kodak, and other rappers, such as Youngboy Never Broke Again and Jackboy. Kodak and Youngboy previously collaborated, and some even considered them friends. However, the two cut ties between a string of violent incidents, tense interactions on social media, and sneak disses. Kodak accused Jackboy of being an instigator in this very beef. As a result, they got into an argument on Instagram live last year.

Kodak Black’s Gratefulness

Despite the shooting and his lengthy list of troubles, Kodak Black expressed his gratitude, saying, “I thank God every day since then. That sh-t could have been worse.” Kodak will drop his fourth studio album, “Back For Everything,” in just a few days.
