A music engineer, Scrilla, revealed that he worked with the rapper the night before his death, and they were scheduled to work on music the following day.
WizDaWizard wanted out of his contract
Last month, Wiz Da Wizard revealed that he was unhappy with his Sniper Gang label contract.
On Instagram Live, Wizard claimed that he did not have “beef” with Kodak Black but wanted to leave his record label.
Kodak Black, released from prison earlier this year, has also been feuding with his former record label artist Jackboy. The former friends had a heating shouting match on Instagram Live.
It is unclear whether WizDaWizard and Kodak Black resolved their contractual issues before his death. The rapper was reportedly 24 years old.
