Kodak Black Walks Out of Interview After Sexual Assault Question
Kodak Black is not quite ready to share his testimony.
While promoting his new album Dying to Live on Hot 97’s “Ebro in the Morning,” the rapper was questioned about his controversial past. Fifteen minutes into the interview, Ebro brought up Kodak’s sexual assault case before things quickly went south.
“We take sexual assault here serious and we can’t get into details, but we hope to have you back so we can have a deeper conversation about that,” said Ebro.
His co-host, Peter Rosenberg, tried to change the subject and discuss the moon landing, but Kodak wasn’t having it. “What the fuck y’all talkin ’bout?” said a flustered Kodak.
Things got even more awkward from there. After going silent, Kodak demanded that the hosts change the subject or he would leave. “I feel sometimes when ni**as like me goin’ through shit, y’all be entertained by bullshit,” he said. “So change the subject or I’m finna walk out.”
When Ebro offered to end the interview, Kodak got up and left. “People don’t tell me what to talk about on my show,” said Ebro as Kodak exited the studio.
The 21-year-old rapper was indicted on sexual misconduct charges in October 2017 after being accused of sexually assaulting a teenage girl in a hotel. Prosecutors claim he physically attacked her before forcibly having sex with her. He faces up to 30 years in prison if convicted.
