KODAK BLACK FACES COCAINE CHARGES AFTER FLORIDA ARREST
Plantation, Florida – Renowned rapper Kodak Black, born Bill Kahan Kapri, is facing charges of cocaine possession and evidence tampering following a Thursday arrest in southern Florida, as reported by the Sun Sentinel.
The 26-year-old artist, known for hits such as “Super Gremlin,” was apprehended in Plantation, Florida, and is currently in custody awaiting a court appearance.
Kodak Black previously faced legal troubles in July 2022 when he was accused of trafficking oxycodone in Fort Lauderdale, reportedly carrying a substantial sum of nearly $75,000 in cash. A warrant for his arrest was issued in June after he failed a drug test, a condition tied to his release on bail.
This is not the first time the rapper has tangled with the law. In 2019, he faced weapons charges in both April and May. However, Kodak Black received a reprieve in January 2021 when then-President Donald Trump commuted a three-year sentence connected to the latter charges.
In 2021, Kodak Black received a sentence proclamation in Broward County for his voluntary community service, which included financially supporting the education of two children of FBI agents who lost their lives during a raid. The rapper also made a contribution to a local law school.
Commissioner Mark Bogen expressed disapproval of the honor bestowed upon Kodak Black, given his previous criminal conduct, particularly pleading guilty to assaulting a teenage girl in 2016. Bogen stated, “Our commission needs to honor people who have done things that are special and worthy of being honored. I do not believe Mr. Black is worthy of that honor.”
In response to the controversy, Kodak Black briefly shared a recording online that appeared to be an apology from Commissioner Bogen. However, it’s worth noting that both parties must consent to a recorded conversation in Florida.
In 2022, the rapper demonstrated a philanthropic side by assisting 28 West Palm Beach families facing eviction, contributing to rent payments, according to reports from local station WPTV.
