Kodak Black is in a tangled web of legal troubles. It may have been in his best interest to stay out of trouble though because he was already dealing with legal issues stemming from a 2016 sexual misconduct case.
But unfortunately the Pompano Beach rapper was arrested during Rolling Loud weekend for allegedly lying on a firearm application in order to obtain guns. XXL reports Kodak has requested a judge grant him a supervised jail release so he can appear in a South Carolina courtroom to stand trial for a criminal sexual conduct case.
Kodak Black’s legal team requested that he is released under 24-hour surveillance to travel while he’s out on bond. But federal prosecutors think he’s a risk considering his criminal history, but Kodak’s lawyer argues they have no proof of that.
NBA YoungBoy was the target of an attempt on his life during a drive-by shooting that injured his girlfriend and cost a Hertz employee his life during Rolling Loud in Miami earlier this month. The Louisiana rapper and his record label, Atlantic Records, are offering to cover the funeral expenses for the slain man.
Sources tell us NBA and Atlantic Records want to cover the funeral expenses for 43-year-old Mohamad Jradi, who died earlier this month during an attempt on the hip-hop star’s life.
Jradi was a Hertz rental car employee who unfortunately got caught in the spray of bullets when the hip-hop star and his entourage were targeted while exiting the Trump International Beach Resort Miami on their way to the Rolling Loud Music festival.
Along with Mohamad’s death, three others were injured in the shooting, including YoungBoy’s girlfriend and a 5-year-old boy.
We’re told Atlantic and YoungBoy are “heartbroken” over Jradi becoming a victim, and want to do anything they can to comfort the family.
NBA YoungBoy is currently in jail for a possible parole violation after taking to social media to declare revenge over the shooting attempt.

Fans who had high hopes of watching Lil Wayne perform at the 2019 Rolling Loud Festival were sadly disappointed.
Weezy announced that he was no longer gracing the stage at the festival on Twitter because they made it mandatory that he gets searched and policed while being on stadium grounds. Tunechi’s argument was that he was there to work and shouldn’t have to endure feeling like a criminal just to do his job.
“To all my fans who came to see me at Rolling Loud, I’m sorry but I won’t be performing,” Tunechi tweeted. “The Festival Police (Not Rolling Loud) made it mandatory that I had to be policed and checked to get on the stadium grounds. I do not and will not ever settle for being policed to do my job and give you guys a great show.”
But he did end the tweet on a light note. “I will be at Story tonight for the afterparty and you kan katch me on tour with my bros Blink 182 this summer!” Weezy added in another tweet.
