Kodak Black, it seems, did not have an ideal start to 2022 as the rapper got arrested on New Year’s morning from Pompano Beach for trespassing. The Florida native, who is currently on probation in connection to his federal gun case, was taken into custody around 1.30 am near the 1600 block of Northwest 10th Drive.
According to the website Sun Sentinel, deputies for the Broward Sheriff’s Office revealed that they “made contact with Bill Kapri” in the early hours of the New Year’s. For the unversed Kodak Black, who was earlier known as Octave Dieuson, had recently changed his name to Bill Kapri. The ‘Dying to Live’ hitmaker, soon grabbed one of the trending spots on Twitter as social media users mocked the rapper for spending more time in jail instead of enjoying his freedom.

Why was Kodak Black arrested?

Kodak Black was held for trespassing at Pompano Beach, the area where he grew up. However, the controversial hip-hop artist was later bonded out. Further details on his arrest are still awaited. Hours after the news of the rapper getting arrested surfaced, he was spotted online on Instagram as he shared a random fan story on the photo-sharing app. Kodak Black had also shared a clip of him a day ago where he was seen having a gala time during a New Year’s bash. Speaking of him getting arrested, Kodak, refrained from commenting on social media.
Kodak Black was pardoned by Donald Trump in January after the rapper was sentenced to almost four years in 2019. He recently expressed his wish to see the former President back in the office. The ‘Feelin’ Peachy’ hitmaker was behind the bars for making a false statement to buy a firearm. Lil Wayne was another prolific rapper who was pardoned by Trump on the last full day of his job. Kodak Black got his sentence commuted for his support to underprivileged children. The rapper has had brush with the law several times ever since he shot to fame in 2014. He has sold over 30 million singles and is best known for hit singles like ‘Zeze’, ‘No Flockin’ and ‘Roll in Peace’ among others.

Rapper’s lawyer Bradford Cohen, told TMZ about his arrest saying yes he indeed was arrested but it was a bogus bust. He added that the arrest was based on a cease-or-desist letter from 4 months ago. Cohen added Kodak just went to his old neighborhood of Greenacres to chill with his buddies and also to pay off credit card debt for 5 families residing in the same area. However, the cops showed up there and took the rapper into custody saying that he was in violation of a letter issued by the local Housing Authority.


‘You not tired of going to jail yet?’

Social media users quickly logged into Twitter to mock the hip-hop artist. “Bro must like it in jail”, claimed one as another chimed in, “Now this just dumb of him.” One individual asked, “Like damn dude you not tired of going to jail yet?” While, another tweeted, “Kodak don’t care about freedom.” The next one mocked the rapper by saying, “Kodak stay out of jail challenge impossible.” One person shared, “I don’t think he got whooped hard enough as a kid”, as another claimed, “Dude loves jail.” And, one social media user concluded on a funny note saying, “Y’all need to realized Kodak actually lives in jail and comes out to visit us.”
