Kodak Black Compares His Lyrical Prowess To JAY-Z
Kodak Black may be considered a rookie in the game, but the Florida-based artist seems to think he can mess with the big dogs. Kodak recently hopped on Instagram, where he compared his lyrics to one of JAY-Z 90s hits.
The “Tunnel Vision” rapper was seemingly trying to make a case for up-and-coming artists, who have often been pit against veterans in the game when discussing the current state of hip-hop. In the image, Kodak, paralleled his rhymes from his track, “Can I” to Hov’s 1998 single, “Money, Cash, H*es.”
“Real S**t B Goin On .. None Of Dat Hopscotch S**t,” Kodak wrote in the caption, implying that JAY-Z’s bars were “hopscotch s**t” and lacking depth, while his were more eloquent.
Obviously, this wasn’t the fairest comparison and not an accurate analysis of Hov’s best bars. Furthermore, JAY-Z has surely solidified his place in the discussion concerning dope lyricists, especially considering that he was the first rapper to ever be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame last year. So, maybe Kodak should have picked a different artist if he really wanted to get his point across.
