Kodak Black had fans questioning his behavior when he was filmed grabbing his mother’s rear and trying to kiss her on the mouth during his brother’s Miami birthday party earlier this month. But according to Yak, he doesn’t see anything wrong with it. In fact, he sees it as a sign of ultimate respect to show his mother how beautiful he thinks she is. On Saturday (October 23), video of Kodak addressing the viral clip started making the rounds but only seemed to make matters worse.
“When I see my mama, homie, I adore her, homie,” Kodak said. “I kiss her feet, homie, what you talkin’ bout boy… Some of you n-ggas don’t even holla at your mama. Some of you n-ggas don’t even call your mama, homie. Some of you n-ggas don’t even spend time with your mama, homie. She ain’t trippin’. I don’t give a fuck what you talkin’ bout, n-gga. I grabbed my mama because I treat my mama like my lady, n-gga. That’s my queen, n-gga.”
But then things got a little stranger when he added, “I don’t fuck my mama, we ain’t doin’ no crazy shit. I grab her, like I make her feel real beautiful. I remind my mama, ‘You beautiful, I’m fucked up bout you ma, I’m in love with you.’”
Naturally, the comment section blew up with remarks such as, “This made it worse” and “Worst thing to say ever,” as people grappled with trying to make sense out of Kodak Black’s explanation.
In the original video, Kodak’s mother, Marcelene Octave, looks noticeably uncomfortable as her son tries to kiss her on the mouth as they take a spin on the dancefloor. Although she attempts to laugh it off, other people noticed she seemed to maneuver away from him. As one person wrote on Twitter, “That video of Kodak black grabbing his mom on the ass and tryna kiss her on the lips is disgusting. She even looked uncomfortable when he was tryna do that.”
Top Dawg Entertainment president Terrence “Punch” Henderson was particularly bothered by the strange interaction. He wrote in two since-deleted tweets, “Man, I don’t know the context of that video nor do I need to. That young man Kodak is sick for touching his mother that way, and he needs help. Seriously. I hope I got that video completely wrong and it’s not what the internet is saying it is.”
Judging by Kodak’s recent response, it doesn’t look like he understands why the internet was so shocked. Check out the clip below.
