These three high-profile R&B/rapping aficionados collaborate talking about the perks that come with being famous. They can drink until drunk, smoke weed until high, and get the women they want.

VinnyxProd produced the instrumental put to the background of Kodak Black’s freestyle hit. Black thought an instrumental could not do this freestyle track justice, but he was surprised to discover how well VinnyxProd’s work attuned to Black’s overall vision.

He was the first rapper to refer to weed as broccoli on his tracks. Black utilized the term in his first single. Other rappers started using the reference, too.


Kodak Black opens the song by talking to a girl he is currently breaking up with. He kept telling her that they are done in their relationship, but she does not understand. Hence, he demonstrates he is escaping a situation he does not want to endure because “skrt” is the sound of his tires when driving away from a tough situation.

While released in 2014, “Skrt” became more popular in 2015 when Drake co-signed the song on OVO Sound Radio and shared the song on his Instagram.

Codeine Dreaming Featuring Lil Wayne

Roll In Peace Featuring XXXTentacion

XXXTentacion is another rapper hailing from Florida that helped with the “Roll In Peace” single for Kodak Black’s Project Baby 2 mixtape. The lyrics highlight how both have had different instances of breaking the law.

Kodak Black expresses that he feels he cannot be at peace because of how often the media highlights his fame and details about his legal run-ins. While he tries to enjoy life for its simplicity, it’s difficult to do because these two elements from the media are begging for his attention.

Pimpin’ Aint Easy

Pimpin’ Aint Easy

Kodak Black discusses how being a pimp is harder than some people may believe. Interestingly enough, the slang term “strap” has two meanings.

He highlights a recent jail sentence because of a weapons charge. Black mentions how he is ok with going to federal prison if it comes that far. The life of a pimp is surely thrilling and dangerous as with the explicit lyrics.


Kodak Black flashes his lavish lifestyle showing his preferred modes of luxury transportation, how much money he gets from rapping and side hustles, and his access to guns and drugs at his leisure. The color themes throughout the video are orange and cyan to represent his support of the Florida Gators football team.

Reading between the lines of the lyrics shows that transporting could also refer to Kodak Black’s drug dealing history. Recently, he was ordered to serve 30 days in rehab after it was discovered fentanyl was in his system after a recent drug trafficking charge.

Patty Cake

“Patty Cake” is a music video set in a high school setting during senior week. Kodak Black is shown as a cartoon rapping his song about his flashy lifestyle and not caring what his haters have to say about him.

He mentions a metaphor where he “claps” down his enemies in the streets to how quickly a child can clap their hands when playing the traditional game with friends.

Eventually, Kodak shows up to the prom night at the end of the video. This could be a rendition of what he would have liked to do if he was famous during his high school senior days.

Killing the Rats

“Killing the Rats” is about his everyday life thugging. The video shows him feeding live rats to his pet snakes and spraying Raid on his blunts to help kill off roaches.

He released the song back in 2021 during a time when he was seeking therapy to tame his suicidal thoughts during a probation sentence from a prior offense. He temporarily deactivated his social media accounts to focus on getting himself better.

Doing what he did to these animals in the video may have been a way to help him cope with his suicidal thoughts.
