Last Thursday, August 10th, Pompano Beach rapper Kodak Black stepped on stage to a roaring ovation for the first time since being arrested for violating the terms of his house arrest. After putting his ice on, Kodak grabbed the mic and proceeded to perform banger after banger for two hours in front of the hometown crowd at the University of Miami’s Watsco Center. Performing hits from his mixtapes Project Baby, Institution, Lil’ Big Pac and his debut album Painting Pictures, Kodak’s First Show Out was one of the best concerts I’ve attended this year.
Kodak’s show was full of highlights. The first being a surprise appearance from PNB Rock. The two performed “Too Many Years” off of the Lil Big Pac mixtape followed by PNB Rock setting the foundation for the rest of the show by performing his featured parts on YFN Lucci’s “Everyday We Lit”. Ya favorite trapper’s favorite trapper Jeezy The Snowman also made a guest appearance during the concert. He hit the stage to perform one of my favorite songs of Painting Pictures “Feeling Like”.
The climax of the show came when Kodak began performing the songs that helped catapult the rapper to the front of his class. Songs like the chart topping “Tunnel Vision”, “Lockjaw”, and “Hollywood”.
No song got the audience lit like “No Flockin”. Once the beat dropped the entire arena began rapping the song bar for bar. I don’t even think Kodak said a word on the mic.
In case I haven’t said it before, Kodak’s First Show Out was LIT AF. It had a real early Hip-Hop vibe to it. The rapper, his Dj, and 1000 people on stage in the background. You can really tell that Kodak was simply just happy being back on stage performing his music for his hardcore fan base. There were a few instances where he would be vibing on stage to some 90’s and 2000’s R&B. This came back to bite him in the ass *PAUSE* at the end of the concert when the whypipo cut the show at eleven o’ clock on the dot.
If you’re a fan of Kodak, I highly recommend checking him out when he comes to your city.
