QB Lamar Jackson recently appeared in the music video of his childhood friend Kodak Black. The Baltimore Ravens QB appeared in the official MV for the rap song, “Bounty” by Loe Shimmy, featuring Kodak Black.

This marks Jackson’s first foray into the entertainment industry. In the released video, Loe has paid homage to the QB by showing the 25-year-old MVP’s signal-callers helmets and framed jerseys. We also see Jackson, with Kodak in a hotel room, wearing gold chains and an all-black outfit.

Jackson was hyped about his appearance in the MV. He shared it on his IG and mentioned, “Motion Boyz 🚀🚀”. 

The appearance was certainly even more special as Kodak and Jackson have been friends from childhood, growing up in Pompano Beach, Florida, and attending the same elementary school together. Kodak has also attended various Ravens games.

In fact, the bond between the two friends is close enough for the rapper to be allowed into the Ravens’ locker room for pictures. He even gave Jackson his “1800” chain.
