It’s amazing how fast an artist’s career can ascend in just a few short years.
That statement is definitely true for Kodak Black, because in 2014 most people outside of his Pompano, Fla. area probably never heard of him. But now he’s headlining his own major tour this fall, and he’ll be visiting a bevy of U.S. cities.
After releasing a collection of mixtapes like Project Baby, Heart of the Projects and Institution, the Southern rhymer began his climb up the hip-hop ladder of success. But he would skip several rungs in 2015 when Drake posted a video of himself dancing to his song “Skrt." You can see that famous clip here.
Kodak got pretty big pretty fast after that but not just because of Drizzy. The Florida native has a clear talent for painting vivid lyrical pictures in his songs, not to mention he possesses true star quality.
He’s clearly connected deep with his fanbase as well, since his shows are always packed, most of his songs on SoundCloud have millions of streams and he currently has over 4 million Instagram followers.
The Project Baby Tour will support Kodak’s Project Baby 2 mixtape that he dropped in August, and he’ll hit venues such as Michigan’s Royal Oak Music Theatre on Nov. 5, Echostage in Washington D.C. on Nov. 12 and New Haven, Conn’s College Street Music Hall on Nov. 14
