10:22 AM PT — Big Boy from 92.3 the REAL just came down hard on Kodak Black, saying he won’t tolerate disrespect like this toward royalty in Nipsey Hussle and Lauren London. BB says hip-hop culture has a tendency to look the other way on moments like this, but he argues that has to change … and that people from the community have to hold one another accountable, including Kodak. It doesn’t sound like Big Boy is committing to not playing Kodak’s music on the airwaves like Justin Credible did, but he does say he hopes this helps change minds going forward about ya say about who.

I won’t disrespect my timeline posting a pic of Kodak Black. However, I will say this, I’m not here for the blatant disrespect and fake ass apologies. To disrespect the King Nipsey and The Queen Lauren, is where I draw the line. Hip Hop has been very disrespectful lately. Not only is this disrespectful to Hip Hop, but this is disrespectful to a beautiful human being, spirit and a legacy. Sometimes I feel a certain way, but I don’t publicly speak out. I just don’t fuck with the person, place or thing. This one, I can’t just keep it on a personal chill. I’ve been a child of Hip Hop for a looooooong time. Hip Hop raised me and I’ve raised Hip Hop. I’m not new to this or fake with this. I’m a soldier!!!! I’m not just Phone Taps and funny interviews. Check my pedigree. I will not stand by and let Kodak Black come between an allegiance I have with dear FRIENDS. Nipsey’s honor can’t be disrespected like this. We must put a shield around @LaurenLondon and his ENTIRE Family. We can’t allow these things to happen. Nipsey wouldn’t. We look the other way and forgive too easily. I’m a black man first and I love all that deserve my love. I’m with unity, however, we must discipline our own as well. This isn’t about radio or dropping records, that’s been done. This is about protecting a LEGACY and holding people accountable. This may not change Kodak Black now, but I pray it changes his or someone’s future. For all those out there that wanna disrespect and play with royalty, I advise you to think “THRICE”. Long live the spirit, knowledge and wisdom of Nipsey Hussle. This has to be the standard FOREVER!!! The Marathon continues 🏁🏁🏁🏁 (I’m blocking the bullshit from now on. Try me)

Kodak went on IG Live Saturday with his mea culpa, though somewhat half-hearted. He said he was sorry for disrespecting her, “even though I didn’t.”
As you know … on Saturday a video circulated of Kodak calling Lauren “that baby” and “whole widow out here.” He went on to say he was willing to give her a year of “crying and s***” before making a move on her.
Justin Credible from Power 106 in L.A. tweeted the station was “appalled by the disrespectful and poor comments” and they would no longer play his music.
Former welterweight championship boxer Andre Berto told us Saturday in Bev Hills, what Kodak did was super disrespectful, because Nipsey Hussle’s murder was so fresh, and Kodak would serve himself well by staying out of L.A.
In Kodak’s “apology,” he did say Nipsey inspired him to do more in his community.
As we reported, there will be a huge memorial service for Nipsey — who was murdered a week ago Sunday — at L.A.’s Staples Center.
