You heard that right. Being one of the 73 fortunate individuals that was granted an executive pardon, Broward County icon Kodak Black is now officially a free man.
After receiving a federal firearms charge from his May 2019 arrest just prior to performing at the Rolling Loud Miami Festival, Kodak Black‘s prison release date for November 11, 2022 was finally cut short. Receiving a pardon from the former president, Kodak was formally released from his incarceration on January 20, 2021.
The Pompano artist served just about half of his 46-month sentence. He claimed he was brutally mistreated, denied medical treatment, and even drugged. After being freed from enduring such abuse, Kodak and his team have since dropped the charges previously held against his conspirators at the Federal Bureau of Prisons.
In his brand new post-prison single “Last Day In”, Kodak Black reflects upon his recent imprisonment and speaks on coming back home. Us at CitrusRap have been diligently awaiting this news, so you already know we’re keen to see what’s next up Kodak’s sleeve.
Up-and-coming Carol City, FL rapper PlayThatBoiZay has crash landed onto the CitrusRap’s radar with his latest moves. Ever since his feature on “P.A.T.”, the final song from Denzel Curry‘s most recent ZUU album, PlayThatBoiZay has been steadily gaining major traction.
Coming as the intro single to his newly released EP, Girls Love Vampires, the booming and dark production of “LESTAT” matches his energy perfectly alongside this thrilling video to pair with. PlayThatBoiZay is certain to soon have the wide recognition his work deserves, so be sure to tap in ASAP. “LESTAT”, along with the rest of his project, Girls Love Vampires are out now and available to stream here.
Rest assured, Florida’s very own seeyousoon is here to stay. The diverse, nine-person creative entity has once more gone above and beyond, this time bringing us their newest content in the form of a cinematic masterpiece. With this new cinematic thriller for their single, “Every Time I Die”, seeyousoon brings us on a life-like journey, channeling true horror film aesthetics.
Seeyousoon brings their impressive cyphers while giving vibes reminiscent of other revolutionary groups such as Odd Future and BROCKHAMPTON. Nonetheless, the crisp attention to detail while in their element is what truly separates this group from others.
Ultimately, “Every Time I Die” truly captures the raw and distinct energy that seeyousoon is all about. With their debut album, “VIDÉ” recently achieving significant media attention (The FADER, Clash Magazine, Pigeons & Planes, etc.), it is necessary you get familiar with them quick, and stream their new motion picture of a music video as linked above. Expeditiously.
Lately, Broward County’s rising talent Mikey More has not been letting up with the steady content. Just a week after dropping his newest EP Chooseemup, he’s back and active with even more excellence.
MikeyMore has once again joined forces with his fellow 430 Ent member Robb Bank$; bringing us the long-awaited visual for their track “Perfect Cell”. An energetic banger like this requires an equally vivid music video to complement it, and director Carlos Velasquez was able to accomplish just that.
Coming as the last song off of Mikey More‘s Da Beast album, “Perfect Cell” has precisely the energy we’ve all needed. This dynamic duo continues to leave their fans satisfied, and as always, we’ll be impatiently awaiting their future releases. Make sure you check out the music video for “Perfect Cell” linked up above.
