Kodak Black puts his method acting skills to the test.
Last night, Kodak Black dropped off Dying To Live, which featured the stream-trolling single “Gnarly,” featuring everyone’s favorite frequent urinatorLil Pump. Though Kodak went on record saying he essentially did the collaboration for the numbers alone, he clearly decided to go all out for the cause; today, he came through with a full-fledged music video, which finds Pump coming through for an in-the-flesh appearance. In the JD Films-directed clip, Kodak dons the outfit of the beloved “Suburban Dude,” and proceeds to put his method acting to the test.
The clip is humorous in nature, a further glimpse into Black’s childlike sense of humor; though we might lament the inclusion of such out-of-character attempts at mainstream play, they do serve to provide a bit of character development for the young rapper. Seeing him dress the part of “Suburban Dude” speaks to a self-awareness his critics may not be privy to. Unfortunately, the song itself is among the album’s more forgettable cuts, but it’s likely that Kodak’s team played a role in pushing the “Gnarly” blitz.
Still, the video is enjoyable, if a little mindless. Check it out now, and support Kodak’s new album here.
