Kodak Black is receiving backlash after making insensitive and offensive comments about Lauren London in the wake of Nipsey Hussle’s untimely death.
The rapper took to his IG live telling his followers of his plans to give London “a year to grieve” before shooting his shot with the actress.
“She finna be a whole widow out here!,” the rapper joked, ”I’d be the best man I could be for her.”
Even as his own boys seemed to warn him against the tone of his frank conversation, Kodak spoke of his plans to try and woo London by becoming more like Nipsey by “doing great things in his community.”
The rapper seemed to be tone deaf to both the timing of his comments and the insensitivity he showed those mourning the great loss of such a well-loved and well-respected member of the hip hop community.
Celebs like T.I., The Game, Tank, and Big Boy made comments via social media advising Kodak Black to show respect for the late rapper, his legacy and his grieving family.
T.I. responded to Kodak’s comment in a video post on Instagram and suggested that he apologize “expeditiously.”
Trust and believe the responses did not stop there. The Game, who was very close to late Nipsey Hussle, also expressed how he felt about the disrespectful comments.
Nipsey Hussle was more than just a rapper. He cared about his community and wanted to provide more opportunities. Justin Credible of Power 106 was also not feeling Kodak either. He went to Twitter and tweeted, “We stand with the family of Nipsey Hussle and are appalled by the disrespectful and poor comments made by Kodak Black. With that, Power 106 will not support Kodak Black’s music.

Power 106 took to their Instagram and agreed with the DJ’s decision to not support.
Big Boy also spoke about his dear friend and how he will not tolerate the disrespectful comments towards, Nipsey, Lauren London, or to Hip-Hop.
Kodak Black is no stranger to making offensive comments or disrespecting women. The rapper has a history of controversy and controversial comments towards black women. Not to mention his pending sexual assault charges.
In February, the rapper made comments about a picture of Nicki Minaj and Young M.A. and how they could “both get it.” When some fans of the M.A. reminded Kodak that, Young is openly gay and not into men. Black seemed to begin a bizarre campaign to prove that he could seduce the New York rapper despite her widely known sexual preference, even repeatedly name dropping her in his song “Pimping Ain’t Easy,” prompting Young M.A. to respond by calling Kodak “weird.”
When members of both the LGBTQIA community and some straight fans took notice of his disrespectful comments, which promoted “rape culture” no major artists in the hip hop community said a word.
Kodak seemed so unbothered by the fact that Young M.A. was not interested that got on his IG live and harassed Young M.A. by asserting that he would set her straight.
“How you a girl but don’t want your pussy penetrated? How? Don’t be mad at me, ’cause I want you, baby. Don’t be mad at me!” Kodak’s commentary was repulsive and predatory and showed a deep-seated lack of both respect and boundaries-then.
But now, in the wake of his offensive comments towards Lauren London and Nipsey Hussle, LA station Power 106 has vowed to stop playing Kodak Black’s music.
The backlash has prompted Black to make a public apology, but the rapper still seems to stand by what he said and doesn’t seem to back down from his stance of telling other rappers to “come see him.”
