Charlamagne Tha God calls Kodak Black the G.O.A.T.

Charlamagne Tha God has come out in support of Kodak Black, describing the South Florida rapper as one of the all-time greats and comparing him to Kendrick Lamar.

The comments were made during the latest episode of Charlamagne Tha God and Andrew Schulz’s Brilliant Idiots podcast. At one point during the show, the pair started chatting about Kodak Black, with Charlamagne lavishing praise on the artist.

“Kodak is the G.O.A.T.” Charlamagne said. “I was watching that video and I was thinking to myself like, man, do people realize how dope Kodak Black is, yo? Not just as a personality, but as a rapper, as a artist.”

He continued: “You know these true hip-hop heads will be like ‘Ah, man, you’re talking about Kodak Black.’ I look at Kodak Black the same way I look at Kendrick Lamar,” he added. “I’m not even joking. I feel like they’re both two different levels of prolific. They’re telling similar stories, just from different places. They’re just two different versions of the same kid from the hood.”

Kodak Black has since responded to Charlemagne’s kind words, writing in the comment section of an Instagram blog about the podcast: “Appreciate everybody. Means soooo much to me.”

Not everyone’s in agreement with Charlamagne, with one Twitter user writing: “Charlamagne definitely pop a prec for that comment love #KodakBlack but he gotta build up his catalog to be on #kendricklamar level. I see two [goat emoji] but in different lane.”

Another wrote: “Charlamagne been talking dumb shit for a minute now. Comparing Kodak to Kendrick is straight disrespectful. All Kodak black do is mumble rap. Fk outta here. Kendrick is a grandmaster with this music St!”
