Kodak Black has been arrested and taken to jail in Florida after cops pulled the rapper over due to illegal window tinting, as reported by TMZ

After cops smelled marijuana coming form inside the vehicle, a search was immediately conducted, and officers claimed to have discovered 31 oxycodone pills.

Kodak was driving in a Dodge Durango when he was pulled over by law enforcement in Fort Lauderdale on Friday. 

Following a search of the SUV, police officers allegedly found not only large amounts of oxycodone, but also $74,960 in cash. 

Oxycodone is a narcotic drug prescribed to treat severe pain, and can be highly addictive. If taken in high doses, it could also possibly lead to respiratory issues and death. 

On the official records, Kodak had two charges consisting of possession of a controlled substance with no prescription and also drug trafficking of oxycodone.

After the search, Kodak reportedly was promptly taken to Broward County Jail in Ft. Lauderdale. 

According to TMZ, along with claims of illegal window tinting, sources also stated to the publication that the Super Gremlin singer’s license and tags were expired.  

The rapper is no stranger to having run-ins with the law, and was arrested earlier this year in January for trespassing in Pompano Beach, Florida.

The star has been arrested since 2015, and before then, was sent to a youth detention center. 

Kodak has faced charges on and off through 2019, such as robbery, falsifying information on legal documents, false imprisonment, violation of probation and one sexual assault charge. 

In 2018, he was sentenced to 364 days in prison due to possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and possession of marijuana. The singer was released in August 2018.

It wouldn’t be long until he was sentenced once again with 46 months of prison time due to lying on official government papers in 2020. 

While the rapper was serving time at the United States Penitentiary, Thomson, in the state of Illinois, President Donald J. Trump pardoned his sentence.

However, Kodak, whose real name is Bill Kapri, still faced criminal sexual assault charges. After a plea bargain, he was sentenced to 18 months probation.   

Earlier in January of this year, the ZEZE singer was arrested on a trespassing charge in his home state of Florida. 

The arrest occurred shortly after Kodak finished his 90 days at a rehabilitation center after failing a drug test. 

The rapper has released music detailing his prison sentence, including the song, Last Day In (2021). 

The tune describes the end of the star’s last day in prison after his sentence was pardoned.
