Half a year after his arrest for federal and state firearm charges, Kodak Black was sentenced to almost four years behind bars but it looks like he’s staying positive! The rapper had a message for his fans, telling them to ‘hold it down’ during that time.
Aside from the three years and eight months that he will be spending behind bars, Kodak Black was also sentenced to another three years of supervised release.
As you may remember, he was arrested back in May of last year just as he was getting ready to take the stage at the Rolling Loud Festival.
He’s been in prison ever since as one judge denied his bail request because he was deemed a ‘danger to the community.’
Not too long after his sentence was given, a new message for his fans appeared on the rapper’s social media.
‘Hold It Down While I’m On Lock. Calling Shots From The Box #Literally 🎯🤞🏾,’ he wrote.
Prior to his sentencing, Kodak accepted responsibility for what he did, telling the court that: ‘I’m sorry for the actions that led me for where I’m standing. I do take full responsibility for my mishap.’
The judge, as per the Sun-Sentinel, told him: ‘Young people do stupid things. But the problem is that you’ve been doing stupid things since you were 15.’
Not only that but the prosecutors also revealed that, while behind bars during this time, he was also involved in a really violent prison fight.
Assistant US Attorney Bill Brown stated that ‘He displayed disruptive behavior. He was involved in a fight on October 29, with another inmate.’
Apparently, one corrections officer sprayed mace on both the rapper and the other inmate to stop the fight.
He also beat up an officer so bad that he needed hospitalization after developing a hernia because of the violent attack.
Therefore, the prosecution wanted to sentence him to 8 years but the prison fight was ultimately not taken into consideration.
