Kodak Black Turning Down Tons of Performance Offers to Focus on Recording

EXCLUSIVE

Kodak Black is free to keep building up his hip-hop empire now that he's out of jail, but the dude's turning down tons of cash to focus on something more important ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to the "Roll in Peace" rapper tell us KB has become a hot touring commodity since getting sprung out of Broward County Jail early last week after serving 7 months. You'll recall ... he was doing time for 2 probation violations after being arrested in January.

Turns out, the 7 months did wonders for his going rate. We're told a number of promoters have reached out to his camp with offers. He was asked to perform at a D.C.-area college for $100k, not to mention an offer from a venue in South Dakota for $105k and a weed festival in Oregon for a little more than $100k. He even turned down a Labor Day gig in Tallahassee for $125k!

Do the math --  that adds up to well over $400k Kodak's leaving on the table. Sources say it's all because his priority is recording new music.

Kodak was in solitary for a majority of his jail stint, and had a lot to get off his chest in song.

In other words ... look out for new Kodak tunes soon.
