Dieuson Octave, popularly known as Kodak Black, is a rising rap star. Most of his songs are about criminality, but he is not praising nor condemning it. It is more about reporting the facts of street life. Hence, people say that he portrays the real reflection of America’s poverty. But because of his rap songs, Kodak Black’s net worth has reached $300,000.
Kodak Black’s Early Life
Kodak Black was born on June 11, 1997, in Pompano Beach, Florida. His parents are Haitians. His mother raised him in a housing project in Pompano because they were very poor. He started stealing to provide for his family because his father wasn’t around. After multiple run-ins with authority, he began focusing on music.
Kodak Black’s Music Career
Although Black was a thief as a teenager, it did not stop him from becoming a musician. In 2009, he started joining small rapping groups. Black then released his first mixed tape, “Project Baby” in 2012. In 2014, he launched another mixed tape called “Heart of the Projects,” where he started developing his niche.
However, he only caught the attention of people in 2015 when Canadian rapper, Drake, posted his dance video to the tune of Kodak Black’s songs. In just a few weeks, Black signed an agreement with Atlantic Records.
Black’s fourth mixed tape, “Lil B.I.G. Pac” was launched last year. Soon enough, his song had hit the 49th place on the US R&B/Hip-Hop charts. His smash hit, “Tunnel Vision,” was in second place on the US Rap charts, third place on the US R&B/Hip-Hop charts, and eighth place on the Billboard Hot 100.
Although he has many mixtapes, Kodak Black’s first studio album, “Painting Pictures” was released on March 31, 2017. This album features fellow rappers, such as Young Jeezy, Future, and Young Thug. The record includes a 25-minute documentary called “Project Baby.”
Black’s Troubled Life
As mentioned earlier, Kodak Black was in the streets robbing and stealing before he started making music. He was in and out of prison due to several cases. Atlantic Records stepped in to file a plea in the Florida court to set him free for a period of time so that he could start his tour. The court accepted the request, but he had to be on a house arrest, and he had to do community service in exchange for his freedom.
However, Kodak Black violated his parole, so he had to go back to prison and was released shortly after. Despite these problems, he still manages to earn a net worth of $300,000, mainly through features and show money.
