Kodak Black placed under house arrest after being taken into custody in Florida

Kodak Black was placed under house arrest Thursday after appearing before Florida Southern District Judge Jonathan Goodman via conference call and posting bail on Wednesday.

The rapper, whose real name is Bill Kapri, was arrested at a traffic stop in South Florida last week and charged with trafficking in oxycodone and possession of a controlled substance.


The Florida Highway Patrol said they stopped him because his window tint was too dark. After allegedly smelling marijuana, they said they searched the SUV and found a bag containing 31 oxycodone tablets and nearly $75,000 in cash.

According to court records, Black is required to remain indoors (with 48 hours notice) except for medical reasons, court duties, and concert and event appearances. No studio events are allowed and Black has to undergo regular drug tests.

Black’s attorney, Bradford Cohen, told XXL Magazine that his client has been prescribed the pills by his doctor for chronic pain since he was shot during Super Bowl weekend in Los Angeles.

“Never judge a case on the basis of an arrest,” Cohen told XXL. “There are facts and circumstances that warrant a defense, particularly in this case. We have negotiated a $75,000 bail bond and will resolve the matter quickly.”

Black’s representatives immediately responded to the Times’ request for comment.

In 2019, Black was sentenced to 46 months in prison for falsifying gun application information. In 2021, his sentence was commuted by President Donald Trump, and Black was released under supervision until 2024.

Earlier this year, Black made several appearances on Kendrick Lamar’s album Mr. Morals and the Big Steppers.” Black was featured on “Rich – Interlude” and rapped a verse on “Silent Hill,” which peaked at #7 on the Billboard Hot 100.
