Kodak Black Jumps on the Remix to Kyle’s “iSpy”
Kyle and Lil Yachty's collab "iSpy" blew up with the quickness, and now that Kodak Black's out of jail, he's made an odd choice and hopped on the remix to the hit record. Listen to the official version below, featuring a new verse from Kyle and Kodak on the second verse.
You might not think the song, produced by Ayo The Producer, is right for Kodak. "iSpy" has a bubblegum feel to it, and though it's not too close to the stuff on Kodak's recent debut album Painting Pictures, it's his variety of flows and grip on melody that allows him to kill it anyway.
Painting Pictures was a lot more influenced by the radio than people realize, though. Kodak worked a lot with Miami producer Ben Billions on songs like "Reminiscing" and "Day for Day," and though they're naturally connected via Florida, Kodak was more attracted to the producer's sound while he was in jail. Behind bars, he couldn't hear much music except what was on the radio, and he heard songs like Yo Gotti's "Down in the DM" and his own collab with French Montana, "Lockjaw," dominating the airwaves. Both songs are produced by Billions, so when Kodak got out last November, he wanted to make a hit.
