Wack 100 Says That Kodak Black Shooting Was Payback for His Remarks on Lauren London in 2019
Several people were shot outside of Justin Bieber's party in Los Angeles on February 11 including Kodak Black. A nearby scuffle prompted gunfire that struck the 24-year-old rapper, but he is now back on his feet and making a full recovery.
Wack 100, longtime music manager of Nipsey Hussle, believes the shooting was a result of Kodak's remarks about actress and model Lauren London, who was dating and had a child with Los Angeles native Nipsey Hussle at the time of his death in 2019.
“On some clout chasing shit,” Wack said while discussing the motive behind the shooting during a recent Clubhouse conversation. “Talking about, ‘What’s that shit you said about Lauren London? Get the fuck out of here!’ But Kodak got off!”
In April 2019, Kodak Black sparked outrage when he made inappropriate remarks about Lauren London being newly single, just days after Nipsey Hussle was shot and killed outside of his South L.A. Marathon Clothing store.
“She finna be out here single!” he was heard saying in a clip posted to social media. “She finna be a whole widow out here. I’ll be the best man I could be for her. I’ll give her a whole year, she might need a whole year to be crying and shit for dude.”
He added, “I ain’t trying to shoot at her. I’m saying, listen, she can do two, three years. I’ll try to be like a friend to holla, a shoulder to lean on. You can call my line.”
After apologizing (a year and three months after the incident, to be precise), Kodak still faced backlash from his peers. Nipsey's friend, Dave East, dropped him from his Survival album, while T.I. took down a painting of him from his Trap Music Museum in Atlanta.
“Me and Nip, it was deeper than rap,” East explained. “So anybody, I don’t care who it might’ve been, don’t speak on that man after that man gone if it’s not in a good light. Don’t speak on that man’s woman, that man’s kids. Don’t bring that man up.”
