Kodak Black Quotes
“I have a huge drive. I was born with nothing. So, I was always brought up like: go get it. No matter what. Even if it’s scoping and poking. Rapping and trapping. You know, I did it. I switched my whole grind up from doing that, from scoping and poking, to just getting in a booth and just doing my thing.”
“I will just be doing me. I don’t listen to no rappers, but if it’s a good song I’ll listen to it. But I don’t really look up to nobody.”
“But I feel like I have enough knowledge to get me by in life. Obviously, I don’t know everything, but I feel like I have enough knowledge to get me through.”
