Kodak Black Banned By LA’s "Power 106" Over Lauren London Comments
The comments Kodak Black directed towards Lauren London yesterday have caused him to lose support within the LA radio circuit. Just yesterday, the Florida-born rapper jumped on Instagram Live in a session where he unabashedly flirted with Nipsey's widowed lover, in poor taste no less. Unsurprisingly, his remarks were met with pure and utter disgust by the greater hip-hop community shortly thereafter.

"Lauren London that's baby, though. She about to be out here single. She’s finna be a whole widow out here," Kodak can be heard raving in the now-infamous Instagram Live session. "I’ll be the best man I can be for her. I’ll give her a whole year. She might need a whole year to be crying and shit for [Nipsey]."
As a result of his poor judgment, Kodak Black's presence and his music are no longer welcome at Power 106 in Los Angeles. The radio's decision to ban the Calabasas-transplant wasn't issued by way of a press release but handled internally, with LA Leakers co-host Justin Credible delivering the message at the behest of his colleagues.
"We stand with the family of Nipsey Hussle and are appalled by the disrespectful and poor comments made by Kodak Black," Justin Credible posted late last night. "With that, Power 106 will not support Kodak Black’s music."
Otherwise, Kodak Black is facing another form of aversion concerning his poor judgment. State prosecutors are steadfastly looking to speed up the process on his impending rape trial. If found guilty on all the counts he currently faces, Kodak could wind up spending up to 30-years behind bars.
