Kodak Black Grateful For J Cole's Mentorship

Florida rap powerhouse Kodak Black just named one of the people that give him the greatest avice, and its not who you might think. Kodak is all about taking on new challenges in the industry, and making his voice heard. Recently, he’s revealed that J.Cole is one person who gives him great advice when things get rocky and he needs guidance.

At the American Music Awards (AMA), the southern artist caught up with Hip Hop DX and spoke about the lyrics on J Cole's 2019 hit, Middle Child.

“J. Cole, I rock with him tough,” Kodak Black said. “He gives me great advice, and he wanna see me win.” He continued, explaining how Cole’s advice is different from others because of his delivery. “Some people will try to hold information back, he give it to me raw and stuff like that.”

Naturally though, we know Kodak Black’s words were a response to J. Cole’s verse on “Middle Child,” where he expresses his thoughts that Yak needs “more guidance,” while speaking on his ties with multiple generational Hip Hop artists such as JAY-Z and 21 Savage.

I’m dead in the middle of two generations/ I’m little bro and big bro all at once/ Just left the lab with young 21 Savage/ I’m ’bout to go and meet Jigga for lunch/ Had a long talk with the young n-gga Kodak/Reminded me of young n-ggas from ‘Ville/ Straight out the projects, no fakin’, just honest/ I wish that he had more guidance, for real,” Cole raps on the track.
