Arrest ordered for rapper Kodak Black in Florida

Rate this post

A Florida judge has issued an arrest warrant for rapper Kodak Black for failing a drug test while on bail on a drug charge, court records show.

The warrant was issued Thursday after Black, whose legal name is Bill Kapri, failed to appear for a scheduled drug test in early February and then submitted a sample days later that tested positive for fentanyl, records show.

Broward County Judge Barbara Duffy issued the order, writing that the rapper had violated the conditions of his pretrial release for a oxycodone trafficking charge of July.

Black had pleaded not guilty to the trafficking charge. His lawyer was not immediately available for comment on Sunday.

In January 2020, then-President Donald Trump commuted a three-year federal prison sentence held by the rapper for falsifying documents used to buy weapons. Black had served about half of his sentence.

Black is nominated as Hip-Hop Artist of the Year at the iHeartRadio Music Awards and has sold more than 30 million singles, with hits like "Super Gremlin" reaching number three on the Billboard Hot 100 last year.
