Kodak Black has responded to Rich Homie Quan‘s collab request after the Atlanta rapper called him the “hardest” lyricist outside of the ATL.
Rich Homie Quan was sitting down with Akademiks for a chat on his Off The Record podcast and was asked to share his thoughts on who he’d collab with outside of his hometown.
“I already know this on the back of my mind they’re gonna think I’m crazy,” Quan said. “Hardest n-gga outside of Atlanta, the most talented of this younger generation: Kodak Black.”
He continued, “This n-gga so dope man. He probably don’t even fuck with me man. Cause we be DMing and stuff, but I ain’t gonna lie as far as like different flows, versatility, that n-gga hard, boy. Listen when I’m telling you, like, me and Yak get in there. I think that shit would be harder than ever. It gonna happen in the future but..no young n-gga ain’t fucking with Yak man. Million dollars on Yak.”
Ak reposted this clip to his own Instagram, and Timbaland was spotted in the comments agreeing with Quan’s take.
“He ain’t lying,” Timbaland wrote.
Kodak Black inevitably got wind of Rich Homie Quan’s comments and took to his Instagram Story to tell the “Flex” rapper that he would be down to step into the booth with him.
“Now u kno we gotta make this happen,” Yak replied, tagging Quan.

Rich Homie Quan recently returned with a new single called “Risk Takers,” and a few weeks ago announced the start of his new independent label Rich Homie Entertainment, which he launched with industry veteran Troy Carter and Venice Music.
“For my last 10 years in the game, I have learned independence is the lane for me,” Quan said in a statement. “I am blessed to meet Troy and his team and I’ve been impressed with their work to help RHQ Ent excel.” The Atlanta native added, “I am grateful to God for this alignment. I look forward to working with Venice and my managers at Stronger Together for many years to come.”
As for Yak, he also returned with new music on Friday (September 16), dropping off two new tracks titled “Walk” and “Spin.” He’s also set to perform alongside Moneybagg Yo and Nicki Minaj at a pair of Powerhouse events set to take place next month. Powerhouse 2022 announced its live music event will return to Philadelphia and New Jersey this October 28 and 29 respectively, and Kodak is set to perform at both renditions.
“We’re thrilled to celebrate the biggest names in Hip-Hop and R&B again this year at Power 105.1’s Powerhouse,” Thea Mitchem, Executive VP of Programming at iHeartMedia New York’s Power 105.1. “This will be an unforgettable show that fans will not want to miss!”
