Michael Rapaport has a habit of dropping commentary on every single Hip-Hop moment that seems controversial to the culture. Most of the time, his input is unwarranted and dispensable due to his commonly unruly approach even if he has a specimen of a point. The actor has been on a roll recently, especially when it comes to new age rappers, and they always come right back at him with warlike remarks. Last time Rapaport indulged in this act was with Meek Mill, and now he’s been addressed by Kodak Black.
Over the past couple of weeks, the “ZEZE” rapper has been throwing out random outbursts with an offensive effect, starting with the exposure of controversial lyrics towards Young MA, the disrespect of his own rap forefather, Lil’ Wayne, where his wished a grave site upon the Young Money icon, and not to mention, his alleged fist throw at Sticky Fingaz of iconic Hip-Hop group Oynx. Most recently, Black placed himself on the pedestal of Hip-Hop making claims that he is better than Biggie, Tupac, and Nas and ultimately insulted the legacies of the two slain legends stating their deaths are the foundation of their famed impact.
It did not take long for Rapaport to step into the scene and drop his two cents. The 49-year-old actor took to Instagram and blasted the 21-year-old Florida rapper for his comments by dismissing his rap skills and ultimately repelled him as being a top 10 mumble rapper.
“You’re not a dope rapper. You have no skill set. You have no flow. You have no vernacular,” said Rapaport. “Without the face tats, the wild hairdo, and the short stint in prison, you’d be working at UPS…. Comparing yourself to those dudes is a guy playing basketball in his backyard shooting air balls comparing himself to an NBA player. You’re not even a top 10 mumble rapper.”
Well, Kodak did not take the nature of Rapaport’s response lightly. On Saturday night (Mar. 23) during a performance in San Francisco at The Warfield, he decided to respond to the Higher Learner actor.
“I love my crackas, now,” he began. “But y’all tell this dumb ass cracka stop playing with me, man. For real, stay out of Black folk business for one. Then tell him go listen to my album. Then after he go listen to my album tell him suck a baby dick.”
It seems like Black is more upset about the fact that it was Rapaport that dropped his two cents and not an actually Hip-Hop authority. Perhaps, if someone in the likes of Diddy or even a golden era legend like Rakim stepped into the scene to check him accordingly, Kodak may reconsider his initial past remarks. This is without a doubt a perfect opportunity for the real Hip-Hop OGs to step in and correct this modern day error.
