Kodak Black isn’t happy with D.R.A.M. and Lil Yachty. The Pompano Beach MC, who is currently out on $100,000 bond, released an Instagram video on Wednesday (Dec. 14), dissing the “Broccoli” collaborators.
“What the f*ck, man? Who these ni**as is, choppin’ my lil’ swag, man, talking about broccoli, man?” asked Black. “From now on, man, I don’t smoke broccoli no more. I smoke cantaloupe, since these square-ass ni**as trying to steal my lil’ swag.”
Yachty responded promptly with a video of his own, giving credit to Kodak while denouncing any “square” label.
“Anytime before I perform the song ‘Broccoli,’ I say ‘shouts out to that ni**a Kodak. That ni**a Kodak said, ‘I told the teacher I’m a healthy kid, I smoke broccoli,'” Lil Boat explained, citing “No Flockin'” lyrics. “Ni**a, I give all my credit. Second off, I don’t even smoke broccoli. I don’t give a fuck about weed. I ain’t ever been no square-ass ni**a.”
In the past, D.R.A.M. has also given Kodak credit for his usage of broccoli. “Broccoli is a general term,” he told Genius. “I only smoke OG Kush, that’s all I smoke, but broccoli is just trees. I didn’t know that this wasn’t a much-used term. We used vegetables [as words for] weed but broccoli went off for me. Kodak Black was one of the first guys I heard refer to weed as broccoli and I just thought it was a thing. I didn’t know it was that rare for broccoli to be considered a term for weed.”
While Kodak, Yachty, and D.R.A.M. offer credit to Kodak for the slang term broccoli, it’s actually been used for decades. According to Genius, E-40 might have been the first MC to use it as slang for weed back in 1994 on “Practice Lookin’ Hard,” where he rapped about a “baggy full of broccoli.”
In 1998, 40 Water also unleashed a song titled “Broccoli” about weed. “I don’t need no doctor,” he rhymed. “I don’t need no shrink / All I need is broccoli and a 40-O to drink / Smokin’ that broccoli now.”
“Broccoli” is D.R.A.M. and Yachty’s biggest record to date. Released as a single from Big Baby D.R.A.M., it peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100.
