After rapper Nipsey Hussle was tragically shot and killed, Kodak Black made some shocking remarks regarding his girlfriend, Lauren London.
According to Black, he would be a perfect “replacement” for Hussle in London’s life, and he would be the best man for her in the current situation.
Black added that he would probably give London a year to recover from the incident before making any moves, however.
Black initially tried to walk back the comments after getting bashed left and right.
He stated: “Man, listen. I said what I said. Y’all tryin’ to misconstrue what I said…I don’t give f*** what y’all talkin’ about…T.I., man, I don’t care. I’m in Georgia right now,” the “ZEZE” rapper said in an Instagram Live session on April 6. Kodak did attempt to apologize to Lauren the next day…well, sort of. “If I disrespected you, Lauren London, in any shape or form, I’m sorry…even though I didn’t…Rest in peace to [Nipsey], if I disrespected Lauren London in any way even though I know I didn’t, my bad.”
And when T.I. came out to defend his friend’s honor, Black suggested that he probably wanted London too. The tense exchanges went on for days.
This does not seem to have gone over too well with T.I. himself, who wanted to clarify the situation and explain his side.
According to the rapper, he is not trying to call “dibs” on the girlfriend of his deceased fellow entertainer, nor does he have any intentions of this sort in the first place.
He sounded disappointed over the statement made by Mr. Black and did not hold back his feelings when responding to his new nemesis.
T.I. also added that he believed Hussle would agree with him if he were still alive.
He stated: “I see myself in this. And I only wanna handle him the way I feel that he would handle me. That’s it…If a muthaf***a were to speak out and say something out of line about my old lady after my untimely demise, I feel like he ain’t just gon’ speak up — he gon’ pull up.”
He added: “I owe him that same respect. I owe him that exact same respect, so I’ma go hard. Hey, Kodak Black: You outta pocket, *****. Fix that s**t — quickly, expeditiously. If I see you, I’ma say it to your face. You outta pocket, *****. Get your motherf***in’ self together.”
The rapper saw the incident as an attack on Hussle’s girlfriend, something which he did not want to tolerate, and felt the need to step up and say something.
Many have commented on the situation afterward, pointing out that the behavior displayed by Black is indeed disappointing in the overall context of things.
The passing of Hussle has had a shocking effect on the entertainment community, and in some cases, it is easy to see how shaken up some celebrities are and how deeply their own lives have been impacted.
