The inspiration behind Cardi B‘s smash-hit “Bodak Yellow” has been widely understood to be Kodak Black, an influence whose presence is felt right there in the title. So it seems only natural that Cardi would enlist the Project Baby-rapper himself for an utterly fire new remix of the track. Stream it below via Spotify.
Cardi B’s “Bodak Yellow” is among the year’s biggest releases, reaching the top three on the Billboard Hot 100. It is the first song by a solo female rapper to attain such a lofty ranking since Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda,” and it is also the first debut track from a female rapper to climb so high since Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy” back in 2014.
Meanwhile, Kodak Black isn’t having such a shabby year himself. Despite being under house arrest, the rapper has managed to have a prolific few months, releasing the mixtape Project Baby 2 and humorously making the most of his homebound-incarceration with his most recent music video “Black Cat.”
Revisit the OG version of “Bodak Yellow” below.
