Since being released from jail in June, Kodak Black has been busy working on new music. The controversial rapper is preparing his next mixtape, Project Baby 2, and shared its cover art with fans on Tuesday (July 25).
The project will serve as a sequel to his 2013 mixtape, Project Baby . Further details, including any tracklist, features or release date, weren’t given. However, Kodak did preview a collaboration with producer Murda Beatz.
The above clip features Kodak rhyming about his current legal troubles.
“If you love me, you would understand my situation/’Cuz you already know I’m on probation/Everybody telling me they miss the old me/But the how fuck I’m finna change and be the old me?” he raps.
Project Baby 2 will be the Florida rapper’s first release since his Painting Picturesalbum, which dropped in late March. Although 2017 has been a rough one for Kodak, he still has much to celebrate like being nominated for Best New Artist at this year’s MTV Music Video Awards.
