According to TMZ, the Mahalia Jackson Theater for the Performing Arts is increasing security and social media monitoring ahead of Kodak Black’s performance on Thursday.

The added security measures are being taken after Kodak took to the mic at a recent show in Miami calling Lil Wayne a “fuckin’ maggot” when he apparently felt slighted that Wayne failed to show up to the performance. “You should’ve died when you was a baby,” Kodak continued.

Wayne’s daughter Reginae Carter defended her father, saying, “You new lil rappers need to start giving props and respect to the Goat. My father don’t bother nobody,” in a now-deleted Instagram post. She went on to trash-talk Kodak’s album Dying to Live saying, “This n***a whole album sound like my daddy old shit. Gtfoh.”

The isn’t the first time that Kodak has had issues with Wayne. In 2016, Kodak tweeted that he was a better choice for Best Rapper Alive, a claim he repeated during a Breakfast Club interview that went viral.

Kodak went on to say that at 36, Wayne was “too old,” and at one point, challenged the other rapper to a fight.

In a follow-up to Reginae’s response, Kodak jumped on Instagram and doubled down on his comments regarding Wayne’s age.

When she saw the clip, Reginae’s mother Toya Wright had a very simple response:


The New Orleans Police Department is reportedly helping the theatre with security concerns.
