According to a report from Page Six, Kodak Black was slapped with a three-year sentence in federal prison after pleading guilty to weapons charges regarding his arrest in May of this year, shortly before one of his scheduled concerts.
The 22-year-old rapper, Black, admitted before the court that he falsified information on federal forms for the sake of purchasing guns at a Miami-area gun store. He reportedly did it on two different occasions. Moreover, Black has been charged with other charges in different states, including sexual assault, in addition to charges for weapons and drugs.
Mr. Black, née Dieuson Octave, hails from Florida and had Haitian-American parents. He now uses the name, Bill Kapri. Kodak Black was apprehended by authorities back in May during a Miami hip-hop festival where several violent altercations had occurred.
Kodak Black is perhaps most famous for the tracks, “Roll in Peace,” in addition to “ZeZe.” Fans of the rapper know that he has found himself in controversial situations before, including after the death of Nipsey Hussle on the 31st of March.
Reportedly, Kodak Black shouted out to the widowed girlfriend of Nipsey Hussle, Lauren London, after the death of her boyfriend and father of her child. Black stated that he was willing to give Lauren a full year of “crying and s**t,” before he made his move on her.
Following the outpouring of criticism against him, Kodak Black apologized to her, although, albeit in a half-hearted manner. The rapper said he was sorry for “disrespecting her,” even though he “didn’t.” After Kodak made his remarks, Justin Credible from the Power 106 station in LA, tweeted that they would no longer play his music.
Furthermore, Andre Berto, the former welterweight championship boxer, said to TMZ that it would best serve Kodak to stay out of LA in the meantime because he might lay a beating on him. Following Nipsey’s death, there was a large memorial service for the Victory Lap artist, Hussle.
Unfortunately, multiple outlets reported violence at the LA Staples Center event.
