Kodak, in his IG live had said, "Lauren London that’s baby, though. She about to be out here single … She’s finna be a whole widow out here. I’ll be the best man I can be for her. I’ll give her a whole year. She might need a whole year to be crying and sh-t for him." DJ Justin Credible of Power 106 took to Twitter to announce that Kodak's music will not be played and in response to this comment, he tweeted, "We stand with the family of Nipsey Hussle and are appalled by the disrespectful and poor comments made by Kodak Black. With that, Power 106 will not support Kodak Black’s music."
According to a report in Page Six, the screenshot of the same was posted on his Instagram page as well. Kodak realized that he had gone maybe a bit too far after the hate he got on social media for his comments and he apologized to Lauren through an IG story. He wrote, "If I disrespected you, Lauren London, in any shape or form, I’m sorry. Even though I didn’t. And rest in peace to dude. Y’all already know what I said, dude encouraged me to do sh-t for the community. Anyhow, my bad to them two."
Nipsey Hussle was shot dead on March 31 in the Crenshaw neighborhood where he owns a clothing store. The rapper's death was a shock to his community and other rappers took to Instagram to share their shock over the loss. On Saturday, rival LA gangs called a truce to come together for a peace march in the same neighborhood in memory of the late rapper.
