Authorities in South Florida say rapper Kodak Black was detained on a trespassing allegation on Saturday.
The Broward Sheriff’s Office has confirmed that Black was brought into custody early Saturday morning in Pompano Beach, his hometown. The reason for the arrest was not immediately made public by the authorities.
The publication said that Black was freed after posting bail. His publicist and attorney did not respond to a request for comment sent through email within minutes.
Before leaving office in 2020, President Donald Trump decreased Black’s federal prison term of 3 years for fabricating documentation to purchase guns from a Miami gun shop. About half of his sentence had already been served.
Afterward, he was sentenced to probation for abusing a minor in a hotel room in South Carolina last April. Initially, Black was accused of rape, but he accepted a plea bargain and pled guilty to assault.
Throughout Kodak Black’s career, there have been times of popular success and public controversy. Throughout the late 2010s, he was involved in a number of legal issues, which started in middle school. Black was sentenced to almost 4 years in federal prison in 2019 after being caught for firearms possession. Bill Israel, his third studio album, was released while he was jailed (2020).
In elementary school, Kodak Black began rapping and recording music in a nearby trap house. Reading thesaurus and dictionaries helped him to expand his vocabulary as a child. With his companions, Kodak Black was regularly involved in fights and break-ins. For fighting, he was dismissed from school in the 5th grade, and for vehicle theft, he was arrested in the eighth grade. It was said that there were only two possibilities available to him growing up: “sell drugs with a gun on his hip or rap.”
