Kodak raps about XXXTentacion's senseless murder on new song "Malcolm X."
Kodak Black just released his sophomore album last night called Dying to Live which features 16 tracks and guest appearances from Juice WRLD, Travis Scott, and Lil Pump. While fans are busy digesting the new body of work, there’s one track already making some noise, and that’s track #9, “Malcolm X,” where he addresses gun violence, racism, and the late XXXTentacion, among other things.
In fact, Kodak appears to compare human rights activist Malcolm X to XXXTentacion, both of which who were fatally shot by some haters. Kodak references XXX’s senseless death, rapping about his location of his death at the bike shop and not carrying a gun on him.
X was tryna buy a bike and he got gunned down
X was tryna change his life, but he got burned down
X wasn't ridin' with no pipe so he got gunned down
Listen, do as I say, don't do as I do
Nine out of ten, it ain't gon' end up lookin' good for you
Kodak recently spoke about the death of his friend XXX, saying he didn’t believe his death at first. He said he was in his prison dorm when he first heard someone say, "He ain't dead,” before learning that the news was sadly true.
Kodak and XXXTentacion have previously worked together on "Roll in Peace," which appeared on Kodak's 2017 effort Project Baby 2. Listen to the song "Malcolm X" and the rest of Dying To Live right now on HNHH.
