Kodak Black Drops New “Jail House Blues” Freestyle From Behind Bars
2016 XXL Freshman Kodak Black has been incarcerated for possession of marijuana in St. Lucie County, Fla. since August. He dropped one of the best projects of the year with Lil Big Pac back in June and has seen loosies like "Chances" get released, but fans are still waiting patiently for new music from Project Baby. Now they're getting a taste.
Above is Kodak's new "Jail House Freestyle," an a capella track. The producer who recorded the track, Kodak's trusty sidekick Dubba-AA, tells XXL he got a call from Kodak on Friday night asking if he could record what the Pompano Beach rapper was about to spit, so he did so on his cell phone. Dubba-AA produced songs like "Gospel," "In Too Deep" and "Rock Bottom" on last year's Institution tape as well as "Everything 1K," "Vibin in This Bih" and "Slayed" off Lil Big Pac.
Earlier in October, we heard Kodak singing from behind bars to his girlfriend on the phone. Even over the phone, he sounds as soulful as ever, with a buzz that builds more with every day he sits in prison.
He's scheduled to get out Nov. 24, but he's got sexual battery charges awaiting him in South Carolina, so we'll have to wait and see what the status of his freedom is then.
For now, listen to "Jail House Freestyle" above, following in the tradition of X-Raided, Max B and other rappers who've spit over the phone from prison, and peep some of the music Kodak made as J-Black when he was in his early teens.
