For the most part, his fans seem to be taking his message positively, especially since there is a growing divide among the US population regarding the wearing of masks and their effectiveness.
“Thx Kodak for looking out,” one fan applauded.
“Sorry to hear that. My condolences to his family!! And yes this sh*t is so real and these folks think it’s a dam* joke,” another supporter added.
The “Feelin Peachy” rapper was one of the celebrities who had publicly advertised the wearing of masks in light of this pandemic. The artiste was the first to receive a diamond-encrusted Sniper Gang mask from famous jeweler Johnny Dang. The mask was rumored to be worth US$30,000. Johnny Dang & Company, based in Houston, TX, is known for making diamond-covered chains, bracelets, watches, pendants, grillz, and other accessories that rappers flock to in droves.
