When music business mogul Master P took Florida rap tenderfoot Kodak Black under his wing, we were nearly certain that the results would turn out in both of their favors considering that one is a music executive, and the other, a rising hip-hop star.
But after business turned bad and their advisory-turned-adversary relationship quickly dismantled, which P dished on with The Breakfast Club, the Project Baby has a rebuttal for the No Limit Records boss’s claims.
The 20-year-old hopped on Instagram Live responding to P’s claims that Kodak is totally in the dark with respects to his career and the contract binding it together. According to Master P, not only is Kodak ignorant to the clauses of his own contract, he’s not even sure that he’s actually seen a contract.
He can now be rest assured that Kodak has, however, after the “Tunnel Vision” emcee flashed the purported contract in question via the ‘Gram for everyone else to see. Kodak insisted that he “owns his sh**,” denouncing P’s commentary on his industry ignorance.
“Don’t get on the Internet and try to bash a n**ga like a n**ga dumb or some sh**,” he said. “I ain’t never asked a n**ga to be my manager. I don’t even want no manager.”
Kodak demonstrates to his Instagram Live viewers more evidence of his music business savvy by way of two books, respectively titled All You Need to Know About the Music Business and HBR’s 10 Must Reads On Managing Yourself. He suggest that it’s P who is misguided, recalling that the 47-year-old told him that Kodak’s current management team had been pulling wool over his head in terms of finances for years. The problem with that claim, Kodak said, is that time hasn’t permitted them to do such a thing.
“I ain’t even have this n**ga for years,” he said. “I ain’t even have Theo Sedlmayr for a whole year, so stop trying to bash a n**ga.”
For the sake of business, and no more bad blood, let’s hope the contract’s discovery will move closer to settling the misunderstanding soon.
