Kodak Black is the greatest to ever grace the mic, according to Charlamagne Tha God.
On Saturday, January 28, The Breakfast Club host released the latest episode of his long-running Brilliant Idiots podcast with comedian Andrew Schultz on YouTube. During their conversation, Charlamagne takes a few minutes to salute the Florida rapper, who had an outstanding year in 2022. He begins his ode to 'Yak by asserting that he's the G.O.A.T. and that he views the "Super Gremlin" rapper "the same way" he sees Kendrick Lamar.
"Kodak is the G.O.A.T." Charlamagne began at the 5:50 mark of the show.
"I was watching that video and I was thinking to myself like, man, do people realize how dope Kodak Black is, yo?" he continued. "Not just as a personality, but as a rapper, as a artist."
"You know these true hip-hop heads will be like 'Ah, man, you’re talking about Kodak Black,'" he continued. "I look at Kodak Black the same way I look at Kendrick Lamar. I’m not even joking. I feel like they’re both two different levels of prolific. They’re telling similar stories, just from different places. They’re just two different versions of the same kid from the hood."
CTG's words come months after Kodak appeared on Kendrick Lamar's critically acclaimed album Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers. After he hopped on "Silent Hill" and did some narrating on the album, the Pompano Beach native has been receiving a lot more praise for his artistry. K. Dot even brought out 'Yak to perform their song for the first time together during his headlining set at Rolling Loud Miami last year. Kodak was flattered by Charlamagne's words and responded in the comment section of an Instagram blog's post about the video.
"Appreciate everybody," he wrote according to XXL. "Means soooo much to me."
