The Bronx rhymer also noted the fact that Kodak Black is given credit on the song because “Bodak” was inspired by his “No Flockin” single.
“Oooo and for people who always be on dick, i never felt like had to give ya a explanation but i have and always gave credit to Kodak,” she wrote. “I mean if people use common sense the song is name BODAK YELLOW for a reason.”
“Bodak” is up against Big Sean’s “Bounce Back,” JAY-Z’s “4:44,” Kendrick Lamar’s “HUMBLE.,” and Migos’ “Bad and Boujee” for Best Rap Performance. It will also face off in the Best Rap Song category with Danger Mouse, Run the Jewels, and Big Boi’s “Chase Me,” “HUMBLE.,” Rapsody’s “Sassy,” and JAY-Z’s “The Story of O.J.”
