Kodak Black wants a word with NBA YoungBoy manager Alex Junnier as he accuses him of borrowing his idea for a tour without permission.
The claim came from the rapper while taping an Instagram Live earlier this week. It seems that he intentionally made the Live a few days after the announcement of YoungBoy’s tour with Quando Rondo. The tour, which is expected to cover at least 30 cities across the United States, is set to begin in Chicago.
The place may have been well thought out by the YoungBoy team since it is the home base of the “Life Support” rapper’s rivals Lil Durk and King Von, who was shot dead following a an altercation with the Quando Rondo team in November 2020.
The location of the first performance was not lost on Kodak Black, who said he was the first to come up with the idea of making Chicago the first stop on the tour. Kodak added that NBA manager YoungBoy used to hang out with him so he was well aware of his plan. Junnier was once Kodak’s manager, so his accusations might not be so far-fetched.
“They know this is my kind of shit. ‘Oh yeah, they can’t come here? First stop!’ … There might be some smoke, but you won’t tell an *** a that he can’t come anywhere because I have to collect the checks here,” he added.
Of course, Kodak and YoungBoy Never Broke Again have been in something of a cold war since 2017, with the two shooting indirect blows at each other. Things recently came to a boil when the “No Flockin'” rapper called out his YoungBoy fans on Twitter. He called them irritating after he started posting “YB Better” comments and hashtags in all his posts.
The Baton Rouge rapper fired back almost immediately with a veiled response, posting, “Ps. you don’t like my fans, I don’t like you ‘pussy’ #TLS,” while promoting he was promoting from the Last Slimeto album on Instagram. Again, not a direct shot, but fans knew who the comment was aimed at.
Regarding Kodak’s claims, he may be referring to his 2019 Dying To Live Tour, which saw him perform on 32 stages across the United States as he promoted his album, which featured the same name as the tour. His long tour started in New Orleans, which some fans interpreted as a message to NBA YoungBoy.
It’s sad to see the two still going as not too long ago Kodak Black seemed to be a fan of the rapper as he even offered to have the pair do a joint tour which he thought he might have gotten around twenty million for.
However, hip-hop fans know that this beef can drag on for a while.
