Kodak Black deletes his Instagram account after calling out a basketball coach going viral for his dance to NBA YoungBoy.
Kodak Black may be a changed man since gaining his freedom from prison, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t going to sit back when he feels that he’s been insulted. He was only released in January, and even when he was in jail, he was getting under people’s skin. For example, he and T.I. had a public spat after the Atlanta rapper called him out for his comments about then newly widowed Lauren London. He went on to apologize for that one. Another feud that seems to have been brewing for a while is now taking center stage, and that’s with NBA Youngboy.
About a year ago, the two went at it via social media. As far back as 2017, the two traded insults following Kodak’s track “Time Never Mattered,” which most fans felt was aimed at YoungBoy. Then in 2019, rumors began to circulate that NBA YoungBoy also dated Kodaks ex-girlfriend Dej. Last year their issues were once again highlighted after Yaya Mayweather, NBA YoungBoys ex-girlfriend, stabbed YoungBoy’s other pregnant girlfriend.
Fast forward to 2021, and Yak is once again going after YoungBoy, this time claiming that the Baton Rouge rapper is one of the many young rappers that he believes are not giving him his proper dues for inspiring them.
Kodak took offense after DJ Akademiks shared a video of a basketball coach dancing in the locker room. The dance was to NBA Youngboy’s “Right Foot Creep,” which was apparently a hit in the locker room as everyone enthusiastically encouraged the couch.

Akademiks posted the video and wrote, “#kodakblack points out the coach doing his dance. Y’all think the coach know kodak as Project Baby or Bill Kapri the suburban kid.” Kodak reacted and posted, “But They Doing My Dance Tho,” alongside a laughing emoji.
While his beef with NBA Youngboy is long-standing, he has been taking shots at young and upcoming artists who he believes have not put enough respect on his name. Earlier this month, he went after Megan Thee Stallion, who he earnestly believes stole his style with her ‘drive the boat’ slogan. He also went after Pooh Shiesty, who he said did the money spread without giving him the proper credit for inventing the gesture.
