Kodak Black was raised in the projects outside of Miami Florida by a single mother. He was rapping and running drugs with some of the older kids on the block, but when he was 15 caught a life sentence that almost put him away for good. Luckily a producer thought he was worth investing in, paid off his lawyers, and signed him to the label Atlantic Records. Originally he was rapping under the monkier Lil Black but when he signed up to instagram he swapped out the lil for Kodak.
