Now sitting at #24 on YouTube’s Trending for Music since its release, Kodak Black’s ‘Maffioso’ has been watched more than one million times. In the music video from the ‘Haitian Boy Kodak’ project, the unique-haired rapper-crooner eats with his friend and gets the good news about an opp’s death. Then, with his security guard after dinner, he talks a walk outside to the trunk of a car and places the body in the trunk.

Subsequently, the self-directed video ends. Kodak Black’s sing-rap delivery is often rare and catchy, and that’s what keeps us coming back.

Pompano Beach-native artist, known for putting his Haitian pride on display, celebrated a birthday on June 11. Also, on his birthday, the state of Florida honoured him with a day of his own for his charitable work. So if you’re in Broward County next year, you can observe Kodak Black Day.
