Florida rapper Kodak Black wants more than letters from fans. The jailed hip-hop artist has made a special request for anyone reaching out to him.
Black went to his Instagram page Friday (March 2) to alert his 5.2 million followers he needs visuals to go with anything written and mailed his way.
Earlier in the week, the Florida native appeared in court donning a new hairstyle and making a plea for his freedom.
Appearing in Broward County court without his distinctive dreadlocks; Black, whose real name is Dieuson Octave, entered the not guilty pleas for possession of cannabis and possession of ammunition. Last week, Octave had charges against him of possession of a weapon or ammunition by a delinquent, grand theft of a firearm, and child neglect dropped by the State of Florida. (Local 10 News)
Last week, buzz developed about Kodak having three charges dropped from his recent house raid arrest.
The State of Florida dismissed one charge each — for possession of a weapon or ammunition by a delinquent, grand theft of a firearm, and child neglect … according to Kodak’s attorney, Bradford Cohen. Kodak’s still facing other charges, including marijuana possession and possession of ammunition. He’s still in jail for a probation violation. (TMZ)
Recently, reports surfaced about Kodak’s weapons and drugs case judge getting dismissed.
Broward County senior Judge Joel Lazarus accidentally spoke into a hot microphone over a live internet broadcast January 19 while preparing for first appearance hearings and told a prosecutor that he would “double the bond to those that take place in my neighborhood.” He then elaborated and said, “Closer to my house, the higher the bond. That was always the Lazarus rule.” He later claimed to be joking, but the Broward County Chief Judge barred Lazarus from presiding over first appearance court in the future, and also from anything involving criminal court over the “clearly inappropriate” statement.
