Where does Corrlinks and JPay come from?
"Corrlinks and JPay" on his debut album Painting Pictures in March, 2017. The title refers to the companies CorrLinks and JPay, which provide email and money-transfer services between people in prison and their loved ones, families, and friends.
Kodak Black's reference to these prison services might be the best known, but it is not novel, with rapper E-40, for instance, incorporating both Corrinks and JPay into the lyrics of his 2016 "What It's Gone Be."
The chorus of "Corrinks and JPay" simply repeats those names, implying that a life of drugs and crime only culminates in a dependency on the service for contact with loved ones and survival behind bars. As Kodak Black sums it up in his second look: "For all my niggas waitin 'on some pictures through the Corrlinks / I know your people is not keep it real like they supposed to be / Go send your niggas some money through JPay so I can eat. "
And, Kodak Black can speak to Corrinks and JPay from experience, as he was sentenced to prison term just a year after his popular album dropped.
While "Corrinks and JPay" did not chart on Billboard, other singles like "Tunnel Vision" from Painting Pictures did.
