EDITORS’ NOTES

On this sequel to his 2013 mixtape, Project Baby, Kodak Black’s doom-ridden rap style is as grimly compelling as ever. Rhyming over a mournful, jazzy trumpet that could've been snatched straight from the ‘20s, the Florida MC references the real-life threat of a jail sentence on “Roll in Peace,” while “Don’t Wanna Breathe” finds him contemplating suicide after a bad breakup. His gruffly melodic voice remains a disarming weapon, too, as evidenced by his poignant, bluesy croon on “Need a Break.”

About Kodak Black

An MC who broke out of Pompano Beach, Florida when he was just 18 years old, Kodak Black (Dieuson Octave) attracted listeners with a sound that harked back to the Dirty South of the '90s. In 2013, he introduced his Lil' Boosie-influenced snarly vocals to the world, but what surprised the audience was his Master P-like music and his heavy, often dark lyrics, both of which seemed odd coming from a then-16-year-old. Recording demos in the back of a drug house and repeated visits to juvenile court gave weight to his violent lyrics and stories of inner-city life -- two things that fueled his 2014 mixtape, Project Baby. The mixtape Heart of the Projects followed in 2015, featuring "SKRT," a hit track that got massive exposure when superstar Drake shared it on the Web and played in on his OVO Sound Radio show. After signing a deal with Atlantic, his third mixtape, Institution, appeared at the end of the year. In 2016, Kodak Black appeared on French Montana's hit single "Lockjaw" before releasing his fourth mixtape, Lil B.I.G. Pac. The following year he put out his debut studio album, Painting Pictures, which featured guest spots from Jeezy, Future, and Young Thug. Kodak quickly returned with Project Baby 2 later in 2017, the fifth mixtape and sequel to the 2014 Project Baby release. ~ David Jeffries
