Rapper Kodak Black, whose real name is Bill Kahan Kapri, was apprehended on Friday.
The rapper was charged with drug trafficking and opioid distribution. The Hollywood Reporter claims that Kodak was incarcerated on Friday in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, where he is presently awaiting a bond hearing.
The Florida Highway Patrol pulled the rapper up after determining that the tint on his car's windows "appeared to be darker than the legal limit," according to a press release received by CNN.
The Florida Highway Patrol claimed in a press statement that after smelling marijuana in the SUV, they searched it and found a small clear bag containing 31 white tablets and around $75,000 in cash.
"Never evaluate a case based on an arrest," the rapper's attorney Bradford Cohen urged in a statement.
Particularly in this case, there are certain facts and circumstances that give rise to a defence.
We agreed to a bond of 75,000 (dollars) and will proceed with finding a swift solution.
This year, Kodak Black's album Back for Everything debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart. His fifth album to reach the top five on the chart, it was.
Online police records claim that Kapri was later arrested for "possession of a controlled drug without a prescription" on Friday.
In November 2019, Kapri, a native Floridian, was sentenced to three years in prison after entering a guilty plea to making false claims with the purpose of obtaining firearms from a gun store in the Miami area.
Former US President Donald J. Trump later had his sentence commuted in January 2021.
