Florida’s favorite “Super Gremlin” Kodak Black has become a hot commodity following his appearances on Kendrick Lamar’s latest album — foreshadowing a successful year for the “Big Stepper” as he snags another huge collaboration right after.
Three years after their track “Lower Level,” Memphis emcee Moneybagg Yo reconnects with Yak for an ice-cold single titled “Rocky Road.”
A soulful sample complements fluttering piano keys as Moneybagg and Kodak go back and forth telling anecdotes from their come-ups and the success that followed. The video for “Rocky Road” exemplifies the riches that the duo flexes in the song as they surround themselves with designer clothes, jewelry and super cars.
“Don’t know who killed Nuski, we just know it’s a opp
Every n—a claimin’ the body just want clout and some props
Found out where they been put up, tryna put ’em on FOX
Dosed off and had a dream I paid an M for the drop
I been all around the world, but still, my ear to the skreets
Put restrainin’ orders on me, that ain’t P, that’s police
Hard to get from out that water when you dive in too deep
I been running with some gremlins, yellin’, “K-T-B,” glee”Moneybagg Yo — “Rocky Road” featuring Kodak Black
Kodak must have let Moneybagg Yo know about his recent appearances on Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers, seeing as this track got an unorthodox Monday release. This release also comes a week after DaBaby tapped the “Wockesha” rapper for “WIG,” a menacing single with fast-paced spitting from both rappers.
Joining Apple Music for an interview, Moneybagg revealed that he will be dropping one more solo track before his next album, saying “I’m coming with a little surprise project. It’s gonna be full length and then I’m gonna come back later on.”
Leaving fans with the implication of not one but two full-length projects this year, it seems like fans of the Memphis emcee will be eating good in the coming months.
