Where does Z shit come from?

Kodak Black / Genius

The expression Z shit comes from the song “ZEZE” by Miami-based rapper Kodak Black featuring Travis Scott and Offset. It was released by Atlantic Records on October 12, 2018. The song debuted at #2 on the Billboard charts. Fun fact: it is the highest-charting song to begin with the letter Z.

The song features steel drums, nodding to Kodak’s Haitian Creole heritage. The lyrics reflect the artist’s gangster life in Miami, including drug use, flashy cars, and run-ins with the police. After listing all this (and more), Kodak Black sings in the catchy chorus: “This that Z shit”.

What “that Z shit” means exactly is unclear. It’s possible that it refers to the Miami Haitian street gang Zoe Pound that Kodak has been affiliated with. It’s also possible that the Z shit refers to the slang zombiealso known as lean or purple drank, which are made of Codeine-based cough syrup and drunk recreationallythat Kodak also mentions in the song.

Fans of Kodak Black use the expression Z shit often in relation to the song. It’s also used generally to refer to gangster behavior or Haitian Creole culture.
