Kodak Black didn’t have the best time when it came to Super Bowl week in Los Angeles last week. After suffering a gunshot wound to his leg, the “Super Gremlin” rapper was hospitalized and got right back on the road.
Not one to lay down and reflect on bad situations, Kodak took to Instagram on Saturday (February 19) to show off how he decided to bless the number one woman in his life – his mother.
“Minor Incident Over The Weekend But All Praise To YAHWEH I Wasn’t Too Late To Put A Smile On Momma Face,” he began, highlighting some of his mother’s gifts, including a purse, a bouquet and balloons. “Soon I Landed I Bought Her A New Mansion Fa 3’Million Dollars All Cash. The Realtor Was Real Enough To Get Us In There Within a Week !!!”
The gifts weren’t only for his mother. Kodak chose to bless his crew with five figures as well.
“Gave My N-ggas 15 Bandz a Piece Even Tho That Loyalty Priceless … & 3 New Rolex’s Kuz They Always On Time Fa a N-gga!” he exclaimed. “Everytime I Make Some Mo Money Ima Buy The #ZQueen A Bigger Crib & I Snapped With This One , She Jus Came Back From Haiti To A New And Bigger Hize !!!”

Kodak even remarked how he lost money on the Super Bowl after betting $30,000 on the Cincinnati Bengals. The Bengals lost the big game to the Los Angeles Rams, 23-20.
On the same day as gifting his mother her expensive new home, Kodak decided to jump on Instagram Live and give fans a first-hand glimpse of his wounds from the shooting.
“Whatever, n-gga take his licks,” he said in the clip while counting stacks of cash. “At the end of the day, n-gga ain’t hidin’.” He then points the camera toward his leg, which is bandaged up and settled in a brace.
Kodak’s lawyer, Bradford Cohen, told NBC News the shooting started with an “unprovoked attack” on someone Kodak was hanging around with at the time. When Kodak and security came to their aid, “several shots were fired at them by an unidentified assailant.”
Cohen added, “Kodak was struck in the leg. It was not life-threatening, he will make a full recovery, and he is in stable condition.”
