Calling Lil Yachty and D.R.A.M. out for "stealing" his "Broccoli" slang (December 14)
While Kodak was locked up, a little song called "Broccoli" by D.R.A.M. and Lil Yachty tore up the charts. After hearing it upon his release from jail at the end of 2016, Kodak had some questions.
"Who these n*ggas is jocking my lil swag, man, talking about "broccoli?", he asked in a video posted to Instagram. "You n*ggas don’t smoke broccoli."
Kodak fans will know that the rapper drops the slang in his song, "No Flockin," where he raps, "Told the doctor I'm a healthy kid, I smoke broccoli."
While he doesn't necessarily approve of rappers using his slang, Kodak conceded that he'll just have to change up his nickname for weed. "From now on, man, I don’t smoke broccoli no more," he said. "I smoke cantaloupe since y’all square ass n*ggas tryna jack the swag. I smoke cantaloupe now."
Yachty would later suggest that he always gives Kodak credit for the term, while E-40 kept the peace by reminding the young'n's he's been using "broccoli" since the 90s.
