Kodak Black recently left prison and has a new lease on life, and it appears he has little intention of screwing that up again. According to a new report, the Florida rapper has been turning down cash for live performances in order to focus all his energy into music.
TMZ exclusively reports:
Sources close to the “Roll in Peace” rapper tell us KB has become a hot touring commodity since getting sprung out of Broward County Jail early last week after serving 7 months. You’ll recall … he was doing time for 2 probation violations after being arrested in January.
Turns out, the 7 months did wonders for his going rate. We’re told a number of promoters have reached out to his camp with offers. He was asked to perform at a D.C.-area college for $100k, not to mention an offer from a venue in South Dakota for $105k and a weed festival in Oregon for a little more than $100k. He even turned down a Labor Day gig in Tallahassee for $125k!
Do the math — that adds up to well over $400k Kodak’s leaving on the table. Sources say it’s all because his priority is recording new music.
If Black can leave money like that in his rear-view, he’s either sitting on plenty right now or the rapper is about to drop some of the best material of his career. Stay tuned.
