Kodak Black has released a brand new single called “Haitian Scarface,” continuing his run of fresh music in 2022 — listen to it below.
The Florida rapper, who delivered his most recent album, Back For Everything, in February, has been dropping off singles all year, including “I Wish” and “Usain Boo” from his latest LP, and the Platinum certified “Super Gremlin.”
On “Haitian Scarface,” Kodak claims he’s constantly targeted by law enforcement because of his success. Adopting a Tony Montana persona to help him get his point across, he even uses some vocal samples from the Al Pacino-starring film at both the beginning and end of the track.
He also alerts listeners to the monkey on his back and reveals that he’s been taking Percocets daily to combat the stress of his high-profile lifestyle.
“I’ma set up a booby trap in the trap house just in case they raid it/ I’ve got a lil’ monkey on my back, I’ve been taking Percocets daily/ You need people like me, I shoot skrate and I don’t do no faking,” Kodak raps over the chattering backdrop.

In other Kodak news, the rapper was arrested in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida on Friday (July 15) after police discovered 31 Oxycodone pills and at least $50,000 in his Dodge Durango. Responding officers said the rapper’s tags and license were also expired.
Just hours later, Kodak Black was able to bond out after posting $75,000 on Saturday morning (July 16).
In a video posted by NBC 6 reporter Ryan Nelson, the 25-year-old rapper was led out of Broward County Jail by his security team and refused to talk to anyone asking him questions about the arrest. However, as Kodak climbed into the black SUV awaiting him, someone shouted, “Flavor Flav! What’s up! Boyyyyyyy!”
According to a report by Radar Online, Yak wants his lawyer to be allowed to check the drugs allegedly found in his vehicle during his arrest. Bradford Cohen, Kodak’s attorney, filed a motion to inspect the evidence by a third party in the criminal case.
“It is impossible … to explore a defense on behalf of [Kodak] without being able to inspect, weigh, and independently test the substances,” Cohen said in a statement regarding the new motion.
Kodak’s team is arguing the drug test by a third party is “essential to ensure his right to a fair hearing, his right to confrontation, his right to prepare a defense on his own behalf, his right to effective assistance to counsel, and due process of law pursuant to the protections afforded to him by the Sixth and Fourteenth Amendments to the United States Constitution and the Florida Constitution.”
