Kodak Black is gearing up to release his forthcoming album, Dying To Live this Friday. Over the past few days, Kodak’s been on a heavy press run and clearly, there’s a lot to be discussed. He hasn’t done many interviews since his release from prison this summer. However, he recently made a pit stop at Hot97 earlier today. Things took a sharp left when Ebro brought up Kodak’s sexual assault case, prompting the Florida rapper to walk off. Now, Ebro has issued a statement on the extremely awkward interview, saying he wasn’t trying to ignore the serious allegations against Kodak.

Shortly after his awkward encounter with Kodak Black, Ebro took to Twitter to speak his peace on the interview. The radio host said that he was simply trying to have a conversation with Kodak without ignoring the fact that the Florida rapper is facing some serious allegations.

“I was tryna have a balanced convo with Kodak Black & not ignore the serious allegations against him but also not ask specifics to make his situation worse,” he wrote. “And he wanna get an attitude with me?? Nah….”

After catching flack from the Internet, Ebro reiterated that he was given an ultimatum by Kodak in the situation, but he still hopes that he’ll end up getting Kodak Black on the show. He described Kodak as a “smart guy” and said that the rest of the interview was “honest and balanced.”
