He was raised by his mother Marcelene Octave in a low-income neighborhood of Pompano Beach.

In 2015, he released his first mixtape “Project Baby” which was met with great success and gained him recognition from major hip hop labels like Atlantic Records and Warner Bros. Records. This led to him signing a deal with Atlantic Records and releasing two more mixtapes that same year: “Heart of the Projects” and “Institution”. The latter featured singles such as “Skrt” which peaked at number 92 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and landed Kodak a spot on the XXL Freshman Class list for 2016.

In 2017, he released his debut album Painting Pictures which debuted at number three on the US Billboard 200 chart and earned him two Grammy nominations for Best Rap Album. He has since released a further two albums, Dying to Live (2018)  and Bill Israel (2020). Kodak Black has also collaborated with artists such as Offset, Gucci Mane and Lil Wayne among others.
