Kodak Black Arrested, Charged With Possession of Ammo or a Weapon
Kodak Black has been charged with possession of a weapon or ammo by a convicted felon, possession of marijuana, and a couple traffic violations.
According to NBC Miami, police spotted him outside a building known for drug sales buying weed off two males. When cops pulled up, Kodak sped off, running a red light before finally pulling over. Cops claims they saw him throw a gun in a dumpster and booked him before later recovering the loaded glock 23 .40 caliber pistol. He's currently being held on more than $5,000 bond.
Kodak Black has apparently been arrested earlier today. You can see footage above of what looks like the Florida rapper being led into a police car while onlookers yell his nickname Project Baby.
18-year-old Kodak has been in and out of juvenile a couple times in his life, and in the past he's never been shy about posting his capers on social media. XXL caught up with lil' Kodak for our recent Spring issue to talk about what he's got planned for the future, including a new mixtape this June, perhaps Project Baby 2.
His music is a unique blend of soul and grit as he often talks about friends turning on him, girls breaking his heart, and police cracking down on him. Last year's Institution, while not housing highlights from previous tapes as big "Maneuvering" or "SKRT," was easily one of the most consistent projects of 2015. He's even been written about by The New Yorker as one of the pivotal young artists in pop music right now.
Recently, Kodak made headlines by proclaiming that he was better than 'Pac and Biggie. While he might not quite be at that level yet, some praised the youngen's brazen confidence, citing it as a necessary attribute for any young artist coming up in the game.
He's also got a rumored record deal on the table, though details still need to be worked out.
For now, keep it locked right here at XXL, as we'll be updating this article with more details when we learn 'em. We're hoping he gets out soon.
