Florida rapper Kodak Black isn’t sweating bullets and hoping fans come through for him. Instead, the jailed hip-hop artist has urged supporters not to push for a petition to get him from behind bars.
On Saturday, a message posted to KB’s Instagram page telling followers not to get behind a petition.
Kodak is expected to spend the entire summer in jail.
Kodak Black is gonna have to make himself at home in a Florida jail cell, ’cause he’s gonna be there at least until September … according to the judge in the federal case. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … the judge ruled Wednesday, saying Kodak must remain behind bars until his trial gets underway. (TMZ)
Black is accused of falsely filling out federal docs to purchase multiple weapons in the Sunshine State.
He received three of those — a 9mm handgun, a .380-caliber handgun and a semiautomatic Mini Draco weapon — one of which was left at the scene of a recent shooting in nearby Pompano Beach, Brown said. The rapper, whose current legal name is Bill Kapri and who was born Dieuson Octave, was arrested before his scheduled festival performance. Authorities are investigating three unrelated shootings in the Miami area with possible connections to Rolling Loud, two of them fatal. No arrests have been made. (Sun-Sentinel)
Earlier this year, Black made headlines after getting nabbed by the feds.
Black was arrested by federal agents from the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, U.S. Marshals and Miami-Dade’s Northside gangs unit. The rapper is also facing separate weapons charges in Miami-Dade state criminal court. As a convicted felon, Black is not allowed to own a gun under Florida state law. (Miami Herald)
