Power 106 has permanently banned rapper Kodak Black's music from the station's airwaves after he made insensitive comments to rapper Nipsey Hussle's fiancee actress Lauren London, 34.

Hussle, 33, was gunned down outside his clothing store in Los Angeles last Sunday.

Kodak, 21, apologized to London after he remarked on her current relationship status, noting that he would be the "best man" to replace Hussle in her life.

"She finna be out here single! She finna be a whole widow out here,” he said in an Instagram Story on Saturday. "I'll be the best man I can be for her. I'll give her a whole year. She might need a whole year to be crying and s-t for him."

When an associate told Kodak that it was "too soon" to pursue London, Kodak snapped, "I ain't trying to shoot [my shot] at her! I'm saying she can do two, three years. But, I'll try to be like, if you need a friend to holla or a shoulder to lean on... you can call my line."

After challenging rapper T.I. to a fight, Kodak backed down only when Power 106 announced his music was banned late Saturday.

"We stand with the family of Nipsey Hussle and are appalled by the disrespectful and poor comments made by Kodak Black," tweeted Justin Credible. "With that, Power 106 will not support Kodak Black's music. #LongLiveNip".

Kodak offered a halfhearted apology to London in an Instagram Story video.

"If I disrespected you, Lauren London, in any shape or form, I'm sorry, even though I didn't [do anything wrong]," he said.

On Monday, the radio station declined to lift the rapper's ban after reviewing previous disrespectful incidents by Kodak towards female artists, a source said.

Last month, Kodak sexually harassed stud lesbian rapper Young MA, reminding her that she was a female and suggesting he would turn her straight.

Young MA, who prefers to dress in stereotypical masculine clothing, responded by affirming she is a female who is attracted to other females. She was visibly upset in an Instagram Story video.

Kodak, who was born Dieuson Octave, is awaiting trial in South Carolina for raping a 14-year-old girl and inviting an associate to have sex with her in 2016.

12th Circuit Solicitor Ed Clements told The State newspaper the rapper faces 30 years in prison if convicted on all charges.

Clements said Kodak met the high school student at a concert in February 2016. He took her back to his hotel, forced her onto a bed, then the floor where he committed sexual battery, although she repeatedly told him to stop.

He also bit the girl on the "neck and her right breast," according to Kodak's arrest warrant. He was arrested and released on $100,000 bond.

He is expected to go to trial in the summer or early fall of 2019.

Journalist Ivie Ani pointed out the hypocrisy of rappers T.I., The Game and Gillie Da Kid remaining silent on the rapper's rape charges.

"1. Kodak Black's rape charges were public for yrs.," she tweeted on Sunday. "His peers stayed silent 2. Men being vocal after his Lauren London comments show women are only cared for bc of their proximity to men as a wife/mother/friend. They responded out of respect to another man, not to her as a woman".

    Goodt! Get that thang off the airways and push that roach back underground where he belongs.

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    That coat alone should be a charge! It has to be a knock off. Does Gucci and LV collaborate. You can tell folk who aint neva had nuffin! This ridiculousness is a farce!

  • LeeSeeCee

    How about you ban his azz because of the STATUTORY rape charge and not for reckless words that don't mean anything?? Priorities people, priorities...

  • Guess Who

    Yuck...Kodak Black looks like the Leprechaun from that movie, "Leprechaun" had a love child with Buckwheat. UGLY, crunchy, runt ass roach.

    BTW, that Ivie chick is RIGHT and made excellent points.

  • Guess Who

    THANK YOU!

    Preach Ivie ?

  • MJF

    Education and environment are two determining factors of who a person becomes in life. I'll assume this poor kid lacked in both of those areas. I said what I said.

  • jazmine

    Y’all so damn dramatic. The boy said in 2-3 years he would be a friend or whatever she need. That’s what’s so disrespectful to y’all??? Yea oh k. She not Nipssy property.

  • Coy little wink

    Chile...

  • Coy little wink

    He's the inspiration for bodak yellow that's pretty much it...

  • Yoni7

    Shoulda been done long time ago. Ban anything that praises the killing of each other, the degrading of women and hell, for the most part, anything we CAN'T decipher with the listening ear.....bka MUMBLE rap. I sound old for this, but something's gotta give. Our CHILDREN are in danger.

  • MJF

    I guess you missed the part where it said he's under investigation for rape. Or you only saw the Lauren London part? Oh ok. He's a problem all together.

  • LYRICS

    Is his real name pronounced like "Dyson" the vacuum? In any case, his name fits his face.....

  • Gowns. Beautiful Gowns

    that jacket is a eyesore

  • LYRICS

    That lil' rachet faced midget terrified me!!????

  • Ni Ni

    These record labels should receive backlash for continuing to work with artists like this.

  • Anunnaki, in A twilight Zone

    Sandra how do women like M.A feel about cramps and their cycle every month just curious..?

  • lovelygamour

    STOP LETTING YOUR UNDERAGE CHILDREN TRAVEL ALONE! kodak looks somewhat retarded/slow. he looks like he will slap you, even though he was a teen why would a 14 year old be alone with him. why are parents letting their 14 year old go to hotels by them self. everyone needs to be held accountability.

    his peers are probably waiting for his trial to wrap up before they say anything. you guys do remember "civil rights""everyone has their day in court". in private they have probably discussed the case.

    Im not a fan of kodak black but its a good idea to ban his music because you dont want a crazy person getting offended.

  • KcoolMuziq

    Lauren London(whom I worked in her movie "This Christmas") was an interesting gig to add to my resume.

  • RespectSelf

    lol you must of missed the part where they are only doing this because of the Lauren London part. And for that part--- folks are being dramatic. They should of been did this if he's been a problem.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Somebody needs to tell Kodak... when your body is soft and tubby-looking, you probably don't need to be posing bare-chested on the red carpet.
    #justsaying

  • LYRICS

    That was our question when he first rocked it! Consensus: issa knockoff b/c till this day, there was no collab b/w said designers, nor can said jacket be found ANYWHERE!! I've played w/ the idea that maybe the designers custom made it for him, but that makes 0 sense b/c y wouldn't they have done it b4!? He's not the best model! It actually looks more knockoffish on him!

  • Yup, I said it

    Good! We as a society need to start banning and ignoring this destructive attention seeking behavior. Its gotten out,if control. Remeber how they used to tell us as kids "If you ignore it, it will go away?"
    This dummy just pisted a video about lol Wayne being an "old head" and he don't like "old folks." Well dum dum, Lauren is,in her 30's like Wayne and she's his bm. This just proves that Kodak is just saying outrageous shit for the views.. He has no substance.

  • Yoni7

    He even said he was better than Tupac and Biggie. I can honestly say, IDK not one song of his. I've just heard his name and see pics of him here and there. Somebody said you should know he came from a trash ass home, his mama is only 32.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Tubby chile .... rofl .... he did that video with Bruno and Gucci and felt dem man titties have arrived ...... Chile Not !!!!!!! I was straight laughing at that clown in that video rofl or is that the same guy? https://media1.giphy.com/media/GpyS1lJXJYupG/giphy.gif

  • RespectSelf

    I really be wondering where folks team be at while they are posting foolish stuff online. The media is really playing this one out. I wish folks would keep this same "respectful" energy across the board.

  • Yoni7

    Isn't he the one that said he doesn't want to date a black chick because he doesn't want his kid's to come out black like him? Or that he'd rather have a light skin chick so he could "break her down". Or did he say dark skin chick? I can't remember off top.

  • Rayscoty

    I still can't understand how these 14 years old girls are leaving concerts with these grown men..

  • tintin

    social media, the internet , all of it ruining these stars lives.

    just stop talking. Better yet stop recording everything

  • joel adams

    What that is?
    Lmao

  • Yoni7

    Standing there looking stupid right along with him. I always wondered what was the job of an entourage. Like what do ALL OF YALL do exactly?

  • jazmine

    No I ain’t miss that part at all I haven’t missed it for years but Noooobody in the music industry seemed to give a damn about his problems until he disrespects Nipsey

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Amen !!!!!

  • Coy little wink

    A joke that went over your head apparently

    have you heard of google? Its free to use...

  • Tammie Reed

    So I wonder what will happen if he is on songs with other artists... Hmm? He about an ignorant something, lawd!

  • Chicagowise

    They pulled his "music?" He can't sing. He couldn't play dead in tune, let alone an instrument. I hardly considered his offerings music.

    Back in the day, entertainers had conduct clauses in their contracts. They weren't allowed to brazenly tarnish their record labels and production studios. Nowadays, all bets are off. They more disgusting the behavior, the greater the reward.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Probably the same chile ...... they be hurting too ..... rofl !!!!! Anunnaki gon rofl .... https://media2.giphy.com/media/65ODCwM00NVmEyLsX3/giphy.gif

    _______________!!! I can't today!

  • J’aime Sucer

    So the alleged rape of a 14 year old was insufficient to getting his music banned but dissing Lauren London is what did the trick? Smdh

    Right! Where were the parents?!

  • Yoni7

    It is!

  • TheWildChild

    ?? TRUTH You just took the words out of my mouth ???

  • Rere

    As I said on a different post, we need to stop picking & choosing which disrespect to accept ?? all these rappers etc show disrespect in their music etc everyday but we pick & chose who to stand up against

  • tia

    That's all I was trying to say... the same thing. Should have been cancelled and muted. This fool , BEEN out of order and STAYS out of order. He has a reckless mouth and he really does act kinda of "slow."

  • imright

    ban Kodak ?? they draggin it

  • Indies beauty

    He's from Florida and his music plays all over here. I dont think them banning his music will work in the south. One thing most people dont know about Florida is that we are a very ratchet and hood state in some cities. There's about 1000 other Kodaks. Go to a hood club in florida and you will see...

  • imright

    he said he doesnt like dark skin. like a lot of dark skin men.????? preference

  • Ni Ni

    I really believe you.

  • LeeSeeCee
  • MsPam

    KB and Tracy Morgan looks like they can be related. That’s all I have.

  • Coy little wink

    YUP...its hypocritical isn't it

  • MJF

    Ok "Respect Self"

  • datjerk

    Hes disrespectful all around. Especially to women. ...but he gets canceled for disrespecting a favorite rappers "widow" and he gets cancelled? Like that's what it took?

  • Renee26

    Ani is spot on.... I been sayin this troll is a rapist. That isn't even the first case his ugly ass caught. Little dusty mf feels entitled... Other people see it now cause he's been trolling folks online lately... I saw his entitlement a long time ago... He takes da puzzee cause he thinks it belongs to him.

  • YouWontSayItButIWill

    No one cares if his music is banned from ONE radio station. It wont stop him or his disrespectful comments. He has been disrespectful for a very long time. Why did it take this? This guy has put his hands on women before..........and you just NOW want to ban him. Naaaa.............

  • Yoni7

    I knew it was something like that.

  • joel adams

    What they be doing at google? Is they hiring or naw

  • Renee26

    I believe it...I'm considering moving to FL and I already saw that the black men down there are not my cup of tea... I will be looking to go interracial

  • Rere

    Yes, very hypocritical

  • Renee26

    Being fast sadly... She obviously lacked guidance somewhere.

    When we went to concerts as a teen one of our parents were there. At teen events we were dropped off and picked up by an adult promptly afterwards and sometimes before the event ended.

  • Renee26

    Blunt rollers and bag carriers

  • Renee26

    Can't nobody tell dat mf he ain't sexy

  • Yoni7

    No much skill required, huh? I'm in the wrong profession.

  • Coy little wink

    Google it ?

  • Renee26

    Fugg her... Who smelled better Chris or Idris??

  • Renee26

    Probably curse the whole time.... Or take meds to stop it

  • Renee26

    He called dapper dan for the hook up

  • Panther Charleston

    He really needs to keep that torso covered, that mouth shut, and that phone off.

  • Renee26

    I'm too ambitious to settle for that job

  • Indies beauty

    Lol I feel you... I love living here, we definitely have some good stuff going on. We got some fine professional brothers as well, And its easy to go interracial here..they love black girls from my experience.

  • Anunnaki, in A twilight Zone

    Lmaooo, oh,

  • Fire & Ice

    Sad to say! There are a lot of kodaks running around Florida. Jacksonville, Tampa, Orlando, and South Florida takes the cake (Belle Glades, Ft Lauderdale, and all of Miami Dade County). They take pride in being ghetto, ratchet, ignorant and disrespectful!

  • HelloToni

    But they did not ban his music for the alleged rape of a woman?

  • HelloToni

    And don't forget rape!

  • Bossy704

    Kodak Black has admitted he is a serial rapist and can't help himself. He needs to get help or get off the streets.

  • Yoni7

    I mean, shiidd, easy money! Eh.

  • Youcan’tbanmesucka

    So you lumping all the black men in Florida in one category? ? kinda like saying all sisters are loud and ghetto, that's why we likem light, white and bright!!

  • 11pink123

    Good job Power 106 which is really Power 105.9.

    I hope 93.5 and 92.3 need to back them up and do the same. But I don’t think they ever even played that junk to begin with now that I think about it.

  • The Chosen 1.

    I don't know why Kb made a fool of himself. As you can see, he isn't even LL's type of guy.

  • 11pink123

    You can’t get mad at them for not speaking out on his rape charges. I doubt any of them know anything about him, the only reason he caught they attention was because he was speaking on Nipsey.

    I don’t even know anything about him, what he sing or who he is.

    They probably ain’t never paid any attention to him until this week.

  • Dowoop

    Wonder why it's taking 3 years to take his ass to trial.

  • Dowoop

    I certainly never paid any attn to him. Didn't even know he had a rape case.

  • Dowoop

    Think it's Dyson like the vacuum. Pbly cuz he sucks.

  • Dowoop

    Yup she put them in the "not her type" category

  • Dowoop

    Like are their parents not attending with them?

  • Trace da Ace

    I can't stand to hear this little trolls songs...when they come on the radio...I change the station.....do they actually call this rap???? All it sounds like to me is a bunch of no skills having kids....singing off key and semi rapping.....its trash...all of it...TRASH.....

  • Dowoop

    She 32 right now?

  • Dowoop

    Not when the voices in his head tells him he is

  • Youcan’tbanmesucka

    Has it occurred to her that those niccas in the Dade don't want her ass either? She could have one leg and saggy lopsided tits!

  • Yoni7

    Someone made the comment (on IG) that she was. IDK nothing about this dude nor his mama.

  • smartchickfl

    I can't with you today Renee??

  • xxxgracious

    Ummmm LL definitely had a kid with lil Wayne. Wayne and KB look like second cousins lmao. She upgraded when she got with Nipsey tho. Hes definitely my type. Tall light skin and rugged lol.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Well pardon me all the hell...yew mean tew tell me they band his musik because his insensitive comment about Lauren London but allowed his musik to play while he was allegedly accused of being a serial rapist and a domestic abuser

    This speaks to his character more than he realizes and he should have had more common sense and decency than to say these things publicly even if he had these things in his brain ..

  • Dr. C

    The prosecutor was just granted the order for KB's DNA. They had a match based on a hit from a database in another state, but for legal reasons, the state needed a sample since it wasn't taken at the time of his arrest.

  • Dowoop

    Ty... This is the first I've heard about this and 3 yrs seemed like a long time.

  • Marissa Mia Williams

    So we dont ban his music because of a rape case, and we dont ban the music of strippers who admit they drugged and robbed men, but we ban him because of a mention of a dead rappers gf?? Wow. The industry is pititful with all of them being cokeheads and rapists.
