Cardi B‘s “Bodak Yellow” emerged as the anthem of the summer, and has been making a slow, but steady ascent up the charts. Recently, she was asked where its title came from, and she explained that Kodak Black‘s flow on his 2014 hit “No Flockin'” inspired her to flip it and make it her own. In the “Ed Lover Show” studio, a heated debate was going on about whether that ruins the validity and originality of the track and the success she is garnering for it.
Ed Lover and Monie Love explained that, based on the traditions of hip-hop, this factoid about Bodak Yellow doesn’t make the song any less original- and the same applies to some artists before her. Check out this exclusive video to hear more of this fascinating conversation in this behind the scenes clip from the “Ed Lover Show.”
