Hip-hop rejoices as its problematic prodigy, Kodak Black, has been released from custody. Originally arrested in Jan. on several felony charges including child neglect and firearm possession, Kodak was able to get many of the counts against him dropped while his exceptional behavior had his year sentence reduced to just 7 months.
Although jail is never a great place to be, Kodak seemed to have used this time to be as productive as possible. According to reports, Black legally changed his name to Bill K. Kapri and gained his GED while incarcerated, describing this experience as “a blessing in disguise.” Also, it seems like jail did not quench Kodak’s thirst to create. Black stayed active musically during his time away being featured on A$AP Rocky‘s “Calldrops” and is rumored to have linked up with producer, London on da Track, upon being released.
