Kodak Black recently criticized Jay-Z’s Made In America festival in Philadelphia because he was denied a stage after arriving late for his performance. On Saturday night, September 3, Kodak Black released a video to his Instagram Stories in which he criticized the Made In America festival’s organizers for preventing him from performing because he arrived late.
At the Liberty Stage earlier that evening, the South Florida rapper was due to perform at 6:45 p.m. “Aye, Made In America, man I don’t know what’s going on. This the first show ever a nigga lil late too, and a nigga can’t perform. No money, none of that shit,” he lamented. “Jay-Z, whoever running this shit. Roc Nation, Live Nation, whatever the fuck. Y’all do better. This the first show a nigga a lil few minutes late to, and bitch what the fuck?”
As a result of how he was treated at the festival, Yak later posted a bitter message to the MIA organizers. For emphasis, he used capital letters throughout.
According to a source with direct knowledge of the incident, Kodak showed up eight minutes before the scheduled end of his set, according to XXL. The next set had to be played in order for the organizers to stay inside their curfew requirements. Kodak had no chance of fitting his performance in.
