FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Rapper Kodak Black finds himself in trouble with the law once again, as he has been arrested in South Florida on charges of possessing cocaine, according to jail records. The Broward County jail currently holds Bill Kapri, known by his stage name Kodak Black. The records indicate that the Plantation police have charged him with various offenses, including improperly stopping or parking his vehicle, cocaine possession, and tampering with evidence.
This is not the first time Kapri has had a run-in with South Florida law enforcement. Last year, he faced charges of trafficking in oxycodone and possession of a controlled substance without a prescription. After posting a $75,000 bond, he was released, with regular drug testing being a condition of his freedom.
In February of this year, Kapri missed a mandatory drug test and subsequently tested positive for fentanyl a few days later. Consequently, court records show that he was ordered to spend 30 days in drug rehabilitation. However, even after these setbacks, in June, an arrest warrant was issued for Kapri when he failed to appear for a scheduled drug test on June 9.
Although Kodak Black’s legal troubles have been well-documented, he did receive a stroke of luck in January 2021. Then-President Donald Trump commuted his three-year federal prison sentence for falsifying documents used to purchase firearms. At that point, Kapri had already served approximately half of his sentence.
Recognized by his stage name, Kodak Black has achieved remarkable success in the music industry. With hit singles like “Super Gremlin,” which reached number three on the Billboard Hot 100 chart last year, he has sold over 30 million records.
Efforts to reach Kapri’s lawyer for comment have been unsuccessful thus far. As the legal proceedings unfold, the rapper’s future remains uncertain.
