Kodak Black Targeted By Hitmen In Shooting, Southside Investigated: Report
Kodak Black addressed the masses on Instagram Live on Tuesday afternoon, telling his fans that the targeted shooting against his entourage was not fueled by rap beef. Just days before, Kodak was going back-and-forth with Miami-based music producer Southside, who took offense to the rapper singing his baby mama Yung Miami's government name. While Kodak might be trying to stray away from the narrative that his shooting was industry-rooted, Southside is reportedly being investigated for threats he made against the rapper according to the latest report from TMZ.
The most recent news regarding the shooting of Kodak Black's security guard comes via the publication, which writes that Kodak was targeted by hitmen who were making threats against him earlier. Cops are reportedly looking into the threats that were made against Yak's life, specifically those that came from 808 Mafia producer Southside.

"You still a b*tch. We can bump too. I'll be back in Miami in a week, pull up wherever, we could bump, don't bring no security," warned Southside in a message tagging Kodak over the weekend. "N***as wanna die in Miami," he sang in another clip, mimicking Kodak.
The investigation remains ongoing and no suspects have been named in the shooting. Southside is not facing any charges.
