The recent collaboration between Kodak Black and 6ix9ine, titled "Shaka Laka," has caused quite a stir, leading to a series of consequential events that have left the music world buzzing with discussions and debates. Released just last week, the track immediately caught the attention of fans and critics alike, triggering a myriad of reactions.
On 6ix9ine's end, he couldn't resist taking another shot at what he perceives as industry blackballing. In a move to prove a point, he shared an Instagram post with his fans, proudly showcasing that the music video for "Shaka Laka" garnered as many views as Travis Scott's latest hit.
Notably, Travis Scott's song, "K-Pop," was a monumental collaboration with two of the biggest names in the music industry - The Weeknd and Bad Bunny. The surprising disparity in views left many fans puzzled, especially considering the massive number of streams Scott's track was generating on Spotify.

As for Kodak Black, the controversy surrounding his collaboration with 6ix9ine stemmed primarily from fellow rappers who seized the opportunity to criticize him for associating with someone who has been labeled a snitch.

Thought that little ni**a wasn’t like that, bro. Ni**a ain’t no street ni**a, at all. D**n. F**ked me up” he said. He went on to say that Kodak has “no morals” and “no principles.”
Responding to Boosie's criticism, Kodak Black initially posted a simple message for the rapper on his Instagram story. However, it seems that he couldn't resist sharing his thoughts again, this time by reposting a video that criticized Boosie's behavior. In a clear show of solidarity with the video's sentiments, Kodak captioned the post with a clown emoji, subtly implying that he considers Boosie's actions to be somewhat comical.
