Kodak Black wants to speak to NBA YoungBoy manager Alex Junnier as he accuses him of loaning his idea for a tour without permission.
The claim came from the rapper while he was recording an Instagram Live earlier this week. It seems he did the live on purpose 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 US, is scheduled to begin in Chicago.
The location may have been well thought out by YoungBoy’s team as it is the home base of “Life Support” rapper’s rivals Lil Durk and King Von, who were shot dead after an altercation with Quando Rondo’s crew 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 tour’s first stop. Kodak added that NBA YoungBoy’s manager used to hang out with him, so he’s aware of his plan. Junnier was once Kodak’s manager, so perhaps his accusations aren’t that far-fetched.
“You know that’s my kind of shit. “Oh yeah, they can’t come over here? First stop!’ … There might be smoke, but don’t tell An***a he can’t get anywhere because I have to pick up checks over here,” he added.
Of course, Kodak and YoungBoy Never Broke Again have been in a kind of cold war since 2017, with both indirectly shooting at each other. Things came to a boiling point recently when the “No Flockin” rapper addressed his YoungBoy’s fans on Twitter. He called them irritating after they started posting “YB Better” comments and hashtags on all of his posts.
The Baton Rouge rapper almost immediately hit back with a veiled response, writing: “Ps. you don’t like my fans, i don’t like you ‘pussy’ #TLS” while promoting the album Last Slimeto 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 hit 32 stages across the US when promoting his album, which shared the same name as the tour. His extensive tour started in New Orleans, which some fans interpreted as a message to NBA YoungBoy.
It’s sad to see the two are still around because not so long ago, Kodak Black appeared to be a fan of the rapper, even suggesting the couple do a tour together, which he thought they might do could get about twenty million for.
However, hip-hop fans know this beef may drag on for some time yet.
