The Florida and “Tunnel Vision” rapper was in court filing documents to have his name legally changed.

YoungBoy project while Kodak is working on a new solo project due sometime in the near future.According to reports, Kodak Black wants to have his name changed to Bill Kahan Blanco.

South African poet and playwright Koleka’s rousing poem, “Water,” tackles issues of race and religion with a certain grace and vivid honesty. Putuma has now teamed up with Ecuadorian filmmaker Josè Cardoso to set the poem to visuals.
The video is a project of The InZync Poetry Sessions, a Cape Town-based collective that hopes to explore African poetry through multi-lingual and multi- genre performances. The visuals open with Putuma, sitting on a rock by the sea, with the sound of seagulls flying overhead and blue waves crashing against gray stone before she utters the words: “The memory of going to the beach every New Year’s eve/ Is one I share with cousins/and most people raised black”.
The video is the first release off InZync Poetry’s forthcoming InterVerse. The 8- track EP is due out 4 July and features selections from the UK grime poet Debris Stevenson, Namibian duo Wakambi and South African poets Pieter Odendaal, Koleka Putuma and Toni Stuart.
