Drug Charges Against Kodak Black Dropped

Kodak Black Says He's Drake's Favorite Rapper | The Source

Kodak Black no longer has to answer for a drug charge placed against him in Florida. According to the Sun Sentinel, Black gets off on prosecution dropping the ball.

According to Judge Barbara Duffy, the prosecutors did not “refute or negate the material fact that the defendant had an oxycodone prescription filled by a pharmacy.”

To refresh your memory, Kodak’s car was searched after he was found napping inside. His attorney, Bradford Cohen, pushed for a dismissal, citing the rapper did not have cocaine on him.

“Motion to Dismiss @kodakblack new case for possession of ‘cocaine’ that was actually oxycodone….GRANTED,” Cohen wrote on Instagram. “I will leave that right here. We have moved to have his bond reinstated. With my friends for over 20 years, @skywriter.esq and Fred Haddad.”

Kodak Black's "Super Gremlin" Tops RapCaviar's Most Streamed Song List for First Half of 2022

Kodak Black will remain behind bars for at least another month. According to AllHipHop, documents reveal the rapper’s case needs more time for review by Judge Jose E. Martinez.

Martinez is reviewing whether Kodak Black’s supervised release should be revoked. The next hearing for the case will be Feb. 21.

Earlier this week, Black’s attorney, Bradford Cohen, asked to dismiss charges of possession of oxycodone, citing the rapper had a prescription. Black was charged in Dec. 2023 after an officer searched his car during a traffic stop, finding cocaine, but opted for oxycodone possession.

After the initial arrest, Black hit Instagram to provide a first-hand account on what happened.

“I was on lean, asleep in front of my family house, that’s it,” Black said.

In the same Instagram Live, Black admitted to using methamphetamine and Percocets. In response to cocaine he said, “I ain’t no baser. I ain’t no junkie.”

Kodak Black Affiliate Jackboy Addresses False Reports Of Being Rushed To Hospital 

Jackboy

Jackboy, known for his affiliation with Kodak Black, recently found himself at the center of false reports. Despite the alarming incident, the  Florida rapper’s upbeat response on Instagram Live left fans relieved and questioning the motives behind the false news.

‘CRITICAL WHERE?’

After news broke that Jackboy had been rushed to the hospital for gunshot wounds, the rapper quickly took to social media to set the record straight, revealing that it was his younger brother who had been the victim of the shooting. 

The incident occurred early on Dec. 13 on the 11000 block of SW Stockton Pl. in Port St. Lucie, Florida. Jackboy, wanting to clarify the misinformation circulating, took to his Instagram Live later that day. He lifted his shirt, showing no visible wounds, and defiantly exclaimed:

“CRITICAL WHERE?”

Motives

While Jackboy’s brother was immediately airlifted to Lawnwood Hospital, his condition has been described as “serious.” 

The suspect responsible for the shooting remains unidentified and managed to flee the scene in a getaway vehicle. It is unclear whether the false news of Jackboy’s shooting was intended to irritate potential retaliators or to create confusion among fans and the media.

Fans flooded the comments section with messages of condolences for his brother and relief that the rapper himself was unharmed. 

Many expressed their happiness that Jackboy had not been the one targeted, with one user commenting, “GLAD YOU UNTOUCHED.” Another added, “Nugga ain’t get shot.”

On The Contrary

On the other hand, in 2021, Jackboy went ahead with plans to build a hospital in his home country of Haiti. He teamed up with Lil Baby and reportedly went half and half on building a hospital after discovering patients sleeping outside at an already existing hospital in Haiti.

Who Shot Ya?

The incident serves as a reminder of the gun violence plaguing the rap industry, with several recent cases involving siblings. It echoes the shocking shooting at a Lil Baby concert in Memphis in September 2023, where Young Dolph’s cousin, CEO Jizzle, was injured. Surprisingly, the shooter was identified as Jizzle’s brother.

Kodak Black Arrested On Cocaine Possession & Other Charges

Kodak Black

Kodak Black has once again found himself in legal trouble. The South Florida rapper was recently arrested for cocaine possession and other charges.

Kodak Black Arrested

Kodak Black, whose real name is Bill Kapri, is facing charges of possession of cocaine and tampering with physical evidence. This arrest adds to Kodak’s list of legal troubles and his recent saga of arrests, further fueling the controversies surrounding the artist.

On Dec. 7, the “Walk” rapper was arrested in Plantation, Florida, and was subsequently booked into the Broward County Sheriff’s Office. The specific details of his arrest have not been disclosed to the public at this time. 

Kodak’s Past Legal Woes

However, this arrest marks another setback for the rapper, who has made headlines for his previous brushes with the law.

The recent arrest is not the first time that Kodak has faced legal issues. In July 2022, he was arrested in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, on charges of possession of a controlled substance and trafficking oxycodone. His lawyer, Bradford Chen, had alleged that the arrest was a cover-up and sought a dismissal. 

Users on Twitter (X) reacted to Kodak’s arrest, with many not being surprised. One user named @Cejezy commented, “Bro can’t go a whole year without getting in trouble,” and one other user named @Troyse1 joked by commenting, “Trump is not coming to save him this time,” referring to former United States president Donald Trump pardoned him in January 2020.

Is Kodak OK?

On October 24, during an interview with Drink Champs, the South Florida rapper was seen exhibiting signs of being under the influence. His speech was slurred, and he appeared unable to sit still. Fans took to social media to express their worries, questioning why the hosts, N.O.R.E. and DJ EFN, decided to have Kodak on the show, given its promotion of alcohol and marijuana use.

‘Kodak Black Day’

On a more positive note, in November 2023, Kodak Black received an honor from Palm Beach County, Florida, as he was awarded his own “Kodak Black Day.” During the ceremony, he sported a blue jacket and hat featuring the slogan “Make America Great Again,” associated with former President Donald Trump. 

YSL Mondo Faces Drug Charges

Another rapper who recently faced drug-related charges is YSL Mondo. In August 2023, he was arrested in Georgia on multiple drug and gun charges after a search conducted at his residence.

Boosie Forgives Rod Wave, Plans Legal Action Against Kodak Black & YG In Recent Feud

Kodak, Boosie, Rod Wave

Despite recent back-and-forth disputes, Boosie has taken to social media to express his willingness to collaborate with Rod Wave. In addition to forgiving Wave, the Louisiana native revealed his intentions to pursue legal actions against fellow rapper Kodak Black. Boosie has also recently called out YG for the same situation. 

Boosie Rants On Social Media 

On Tuesday, Nov. 21, on his Instagram live, Boosie made it clear that he’s open to working with Rod Wave, hoping to resolve their disagreements through musical collaboration. 

However, this conciliatory gesture doesn’t mean the “Set It Off” rapper plans to back down in his legal battle against Kodak Black. To add to the mix, Boosie has now called out YG for his song, “Who Do You Love.” The Badazz rapper stated on his Instagram: 

“Check ya DM @yg MY G SO WE CAN TAKE CARE THIS ‼

Boosie continued:

 “I aint tryna break no nigga pockets. Im a business man. Im fair game. Just want my lil cut bro. Say he was gon get back at me. He aint hit me back yet. That was earlier this morning so hopefully he get back to me.

Before The Consensus 

Boosie previously aired his disappointment with Rod Wave for sampling his song “Long Journey” without authorization, adding him to the list of rappers he intends to sue. 

The Louisiana rapper didn’t stop there, pointing out that other artists had also used his music without permission. He emphasized the importance of proper compensation and recognition in the business of music. Boosie stated: 

 “Rod Wave Did it the best no cap…. Rod Wave ain’t the only one . Y’all better do y’all research. Rod Wave ain’t the only one. Lot of people got paper work on the way. It ain’t just Rod Wave. And it’s crazy cause all of em name it the same song.  Nah I ain’t in my feelings. I’m smiling. I ain’t mad. I love when they do that shit. When I hear people done took my shit and sang my shit and put it on records , they giving me my flowers you know. It’s just you gotta compensate me too. It’s a business you know? Just like you do everybody else. They supposed to reach out and be like “man we need to give you your writer’s share, your publishing on this record…”

Rod Wave Responds 

Rod Wave responded to Boosie’s claims, expressing his willingness to meet and resolve the matter without the need for a lawsuit. 

Wave made it clear that he respects Boosie’s talent and was even prepared to provide fair compensation. He further pleaded his willingness to do right by Boosie and took the plea to his Instagram stories. The “Turks and Caicos” artist stated:

“Man this shit got to stop. You ain’t got to sue no nigga like me man. Ima pull up. Fuck you talm bout suing me. I’ll pull up in you bro. Tell me a number. Tell me a real number though. Ima pull up to make sure you straight. You don’t got to sue me…. “ On my momma boosie big bra I fw ya tell me a real number yeen even gotta do all dat tell me a number ima pull up and bring it to you!!” 

However, Boosie wasn’t convinced and defended his decision to take legal action, highlighting the business aspects at play. He responded to Wave via Twitter(X), and stated: 

“How is it foul? Its buizness n you know that. You aint go do that to no other major label without compensating them with they splits why do it to a ni*** you looked up too. U expect me to let u take my kids publishing gtfoh stop playing victim my ni*** is u go sample no limit.”

Boosie Goes In On Yak 

In addition to his disputes with Wave, Boosie called out Kodak Black for sampling his song “Let Me Ease Your Mind” without permission. Boosie voiced his disappointment on Twitter, lamenting the lack of fair business dealings between them. The “Set It Off” rapper stated: 

“DAM @kodakblack EVEN THO WE FELL OUT WE COULDA DID FAIR BUIZNESS”

Although Kodak has yet to respond, Boosie’s intentions to pursue legal action are crystal clear.

Fans have eagerly weighed in on the situation. One fan (@fyee.ang) on instagram stated, “ Definitely should’ve got that figured out w Boosie first not wait til you get caught up. Mfs just have no respect yall want boosie to spare rod but rod ain’t spare Boosie dropping dat shit and aint pay no dues especially when u up no excuse.” 

Another fan (@j.holiday4) stated, “I mean Boosie ain’t told no lie. That’s just like yall go Gucci and pay the price but then as your friends for a discount. It’s the principle not even the money. If he wouldn’t do it to Diddy or Michael Jackson then why do it to Boosie. He know how business work and still decide to sample without the proper protocol and this is coming from a die hard Rod fan.”

Rod Wave’s Unoriginal Flow?

This wouldn’t be Rod Wave’s first time swiping lyrics and Melodie’s. 

One user (@RealTwanBrown) on Twitter(X) called out Wave for also swiping Jay-Z’s lyrics from “Song Cry” into his “2019.” The user stated, “See Boosie was one thing but now I think it’s time for legal action lol son card getting pulled cmon Rod Wave.”

In addition, Rod has also taken lyrics from artists such as Drake and Tupac.

Before The Lawsuit

Seems like Boosie may have a bullseye on Yak’s back. Boosie had aimed at Kodak Black in a diss track titled “Ungrateful.” In the song, the Baton Rouge rapper criticized Kodak for working with someone he considers a “snitch,” referring to 6ix9ine’s cooperation with law enforcement in his 2018 RICO case. 

Boosie vs Torianna Hatch

Boosie is no rookie when calling others out. In August 2023, Boosie dropped a diss track that addressed the deteriorating relationship between him and his daughter. The track came after a recent social media war in July 2023, where the Louisiana rapper took back the pink Benz he had gifted his daughter for her birthday, sparking a wave of backlash.

GloRilla Faces Lawsuit For Unauthorized Sample

On a similar note of facing a lawsuit for unauthorized use of music, New Orleans rapper Ivory Paynes had filed a lawsuit against Memphis rapper GloRilla and producer Macaroni Toni, alleging that they used “key elements” from his 1994 song “Street Of The Westbank” to create GloRilla’s hit song “Tomorrow” without permission. Paynes had named Collective Music Group (CMG), Warner Chappell Music, and Sony/ATV Music in the lawsuit.
