February 3 was the catalyst in the latest of the rapper's legal transgressions that include rape and posession and trafficking of drugs.


Kodak reportedly failed to show up at his assigned drug test facility for a required test that day, TMZ said.

The following week of February 8, the star supposedly submitted a sample that tested positive for fentanyl use, the outlet said.

Should authorities catch Kodak, there is a possibility he will be held without bond until the hearing for his previous oxycodone charge in 2022.

Last July, Kodak was taken into possession of authorities for controlled substance without prescription in addition to trafficking.

Ft. Lauderdale police reportedly found 31 pills in his car.

Kodak met his $75,000 bail for this, and was let go under the caveat that he would refrain from illegal drug use.


Kodak first turned to the rap industry while in elementary school during his childhood in Florida's Pompano Beach.

But, during his school years, he often got caught up in fights, got expelled, and spent time in youth detention centers, The Fader revealed.

Hip-hop star Kodak hit the limelight following his debut hit “Skrt” which featured on Drake’s Ovo Beats 1 radio station when he was just 18.

In October 2015, cops arrested him on suspicion of assault, robbery, kidnapping, and false imprisonment, the Miami New Times reports.

He was accused of forcing several people into his car because he thought someone had broken into his home back in Broward County.

Kodak was also found to be in possession of marijuana and driving on a suspended license.

He spent his 18th birthday behind bars as he waited to be released on bail.

It came just months before cops in St Lucie County charged the young star with possession of 20 grams or less of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia, according to XXL magazine.


In 2016, Kodak was accused of attacking a fan in a hotel room after a concert in Florence, South Carolina.

She said that the rapper bit her on the neck and breast, and continued despite telling him to stop.

The girl, who was in high school at the time, reported the attack to the school nurse who called the cops.

He was initially indicted on a felony charge of first-degree criminal sexual conduct.

Ed Clements, the 12th Circuit Solicitor in Florence County, told TMZ that Kodak admitted in court he bit the woman and said he apologized.

Black said: “I apologize this happened and I’m hopeful we can all move forward.”

The rapper was handed a 10-year suspended prison sentence and placed on 18 months of supervised state probation.

He was not required to wear an ankle monitor but was ordered to inform officers about his movements.

Kodak was ordered not to drink or take drugs as part of the terms issued by the court.


In September 2016, the rapper was sentenced to 120 days in jail after pleading no contest to two misdemeanor drug charges, according to the Sun-Sentinel.

He was sentenced to one year of house arrest and five years’ probation.

He pleaded no contest to a charge of possession of 20 grams or less of cannabis, and another misdemeanor charge of use or possession of drug paraphernalia.

In November, Kodak was extradited back to South Carolina where he faced the sexual assault charge.

After posting a $100,000 bond, the rapper said online that he was looking forward to “clear his name” in the future.


Kodak was further embroiled in legal troubles as in May 2017, he was accused of grabbing his anger management counselor.

She apparently threatened to call the cops when he wouldn’t leave a session, according to the Miami New Times.

She claimed he intentionally disrupted the session, alleging that he “burped repeatedly.”

He was sentenced to 364 days in prison after being found guilty of breaching the terms of his house arrest.


Throughout his career, Kodak has produced around 50 music videos, 35 singles, and three studio albums.

His 2018 song “Zeze” peaked at number two and appeared among the US Billboard Hot 100.

He used his album Haitian Boy Kodak to address his beef with the rapper YoungBoy Never Broke Again.

In his song Dirty K, Kodak rapped: “My lil brother Youngboy told me he look up to me. I don’t know why but he be feeling like it’s f**k me now.

“Bout to call him, tryna see what all the fussing bout (sic).”

Kodak accused Youngboy of working with the authorities when he was in jail on firearms charges back in April 2020, Complex reported.

The rapper was sentenced to 48 months in prison in June 2020 on federal weapons charges in 2019. 

He confessed to lying about purchasing several firearms in background check forms. 

Police later found two firearms linked to the rapper at crime scenes. 

The rapper was due to serve a lengthy prison sentence that was expected to end in November 2022. 


Kodak Black was pardoned by Donald Trump on the last day the ex-president was in office.

The official White House statement addressing Kodak Black’s pardon acknowledged the support he has received from fellow musicians including Gucci Mane, Lil Pump, and Lil Yachty.

It continued: “Before his conviction and after reaching success as a recording artist, Kodak Black became deeply involved in numerous philanthropic efforts.

“In fact, he has committed to supporting a variety of charitable efforts, such as providing educational resources to students and families of fallen law enforcement officers and the underprivileged.”

In June of that year, Kodak previously said he’d like to see Trump returned to office.

And on his Instagram profile, he shared an image from his archives that showed a signed MAGA hat.


Kodak was arrested for trespassing less than one year after his pardon.

The rapper's lawyer, Bradford Cohen, confirmed to TMZ that Black was arrested on a misdemeanor trespassing charge - but insisted it was based on a cease-or-desist letter from four months ago.

He claimed that Kodak went to his old neighborhood to see pals and to pay off credit card debt for families in the area.

Cohen claimed that cops arrived and took him into custody – alleging that he was in violation of a letter issued by the Housing Authority.

The outlet reported that the letter was initially sent in response to the rapper delivering AC units to people in the area in September.

Cohen told the outlet that it was warranted because the cease-or-desist reportedly never made its way to the rapper meaning it "wasn't served properly" as it was instead sent to his record label and not him personally.


Kodak was caught up in gunfire that erupted in West Hollywood in the early hours of Saturday during a fight outside The Nice Guy bar.

The shooting came hours after Bieber had performed in WeHo at the Pacific Design Center.

The party featured a star-studded guest list including Drake, Leo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Kendall Jenner, and Khloe Kardashian, TMZ reported.

The outlet said Kodak Black, Gunna, and Lil Baby were on the street outside the venue when a fight broke out; shots reportedly started ringing after the rapper took a swing at someone.

The rapper's team told TMZ that someone in his entourage got jumped as they exited the club and Kodak stepped in, swinging at the assailant before a gunman opened fire.

Kodak was shot in the leg, and police estimated there were around 10 shots fired.

All four shooting victims were treated at the hospital and released.


In a few instances, Kodak made headlines for online happenings.

During an Instagram Live video, Kodak took his fans in the shower with him.

The attempt to give fans a close look at his life took a turn into too close for comfort when when the phone dropped face up and the naked rapper bent down to retrieve it, Gossip On This reported.

Stills of the accidental nudes began to go viral.

During a recent roleplay mod of Grand Theft Auto V, Kodak made his character hold another at gunpoint.

In the clip, he said while gaming with friends: "I don’t want them jeans, fam. Okay, that boy butt naked.

"Take them boxers off, take them boxers off, homie. Let me see how big that d*** is, fam. Let me see if you’re a man, homie.”
