While there may be a serious juxtaposition between his social media antics and the astute observational prowess of his lyrics, Kodak Black remains a riddle wrapped in an enigma. While the young rapper has amassed his fair share of critics due to a few off-the-cuff remarks and a sordid legal past, it's hard to deny the raw talent that Kodak Black brings to his music. His recent album Project Baby 2, for example, featured an enjoyable mix of bangers and introspective character development. In short, it helped elevate Kodak from his peers, who aren't nearly as lyrically gifted as the drawl-heavy rhymer.
Now, it would appear that Kodak has decided to keep his momentum alive, dropping a new single on Youtube. "1000s" finds Kodak going in over a beat that sounds like something mid-two thousands T.I. might have hopped on, and Kodak makes himself at home over synthesized fanfare and southern trap drums. While the overall mixing is somewhat questionable, Kodak comes through with some energy and comical punchlines, likening himself to a "vampire" version of "Quagmire." Unfortunately, he also busts out the cringeworthy Fred Flintstone-"bed rock" line, which has been used so many times it should probably be retired by now.
Ultimately, this track is not going to win Kodak Black any new fans. It may, however, satisfy those who want to see the rapper hop on a straight up banger, especially after Project Baby 2's more personal direction. Check out the track now, and be thankful that Kodak's being so musically generous. It seems like Kodak as entered full on beast mode where his work ethic is concerned, so it's only right that we reap the benefits as they come.
I be ten toes down like an empire
I don't ever turn down I'm a vampire
I get game with your girl call me Quagmire
For my n*ggas I'm gon ride like a damn tire
