Kodak Black Won’t Be Performing “Super Gremlin” Anymore As Part Of His Sobriety Journey

Kodak Black is taking his sobriety very seriously by denouncing future performances of his hit single “Super Gremlin.” The Florida rapper took to Instagram recently to deliver the news to fans, as the decision has much to do with him quitting drugs and once being “scared to be sober.”

“I’m about to stop performing ‘Super Gremlin,’ period,” he said during a live stream. “I hate that lil’ sh*t. I’m sober for the most part and I say this, like, around my people them so they know… that [it’s] serious. I could talk about it now. You feel me? For the most part bro I be sober, brother.”

“Like Batman, I couldn’t have waited ’til, like, Saturday [to take drugs],” he added. “Now, I can wait a few days… I’m proud of myself. I ain’t saying I couldn’t have; it was just like a ni**a was scared to be sober.” He then encouraged other substance abusers to quit, saying, “That’s motivation for ni**as to feel like if the Gremlin could do it, y’all could do it.”

Last week, Kodak opened up about his challenges with pills during his concert. He told fans how much he regretted rapping about taking “perocets” in “Super Gremlin.” The line in he spoke of goes: “I knew the Perc’ was fake, but I still ate it ‘cause I’m a gremlin.”

“It’s sad though, bruh, because it’s like that sh*t — the bar came to mind so quick,” he told the crowd. “I’m like, ‘Damn, I don’t wanna say this sh*t, but I know this bi**h gon’ go in.’ But we ain’t gon’ play like that, bruh. When I was at my stage, chewing on them Percs, I ain’t gonna say I popped them bi**hes.”

He then admitted to his old habit of chewing “100 Percs a day” and being grateful that they weren’t fake — which he felt if they were, he could “have been dead.”

“I swear to God and my ni**as will vouch — I was chewing 100 Percs a day, man. Average like 40. Average! If I was f**king with them fake sh*ts, bruh, I’d have been dead. Bruh, I say that, I’m explaining myself now. I don’t want y’all to hear that and take that and feel like it’s okay to do that sh*t, ya feel me?”

Last year, Kodak was arrested and later dismissed on cocaine charges. Following the incident, he spoke out about getting sober.

“I remember a point in my life when I was chewing a lot of Percs,” he said in April during an IG Live session. “Bro, I’m proud of myself. I’ve never been this happy in my life, bro. I don’t know where this came from. What the f**k going on?”

He went on, “I ain’t even going to say I’m anti-Perc. Like, I never took a Perc since I been home. But bro, my dosage so low that I can’t believe it myself. Man, I’m telling y’all, bro.”
