Kodak Black, also known as Bill K. Kapri, is facing more legal trouble after allegedly violating the terms of his probation agreement twice this month. The South Florida rapper is now wanted by police in Broward County, Florida, after allegedly failing a drug test earlier this month. TMZ reported that Kodak missed a random drug test on February 3 and failed to submit a sample on that day. On February 8, he submitted a sample that allegedly came back positive for traces of fentanyl.
A judge signed an arrest warrant for Kodak on Thursday, February 23, which was filed in Broward County court on Friday, February 24. If arrested, the rapper would be held without bond until his next hearing in July 2022, where he faces a felony drug case. In that case, Kodak was arrested in July 2022 after police found over 30 Oxycodone pills in his car during a traffic stop. He was later released from jail after posting a $75,000 bond.

Kodak's attorney, Bradford Cohen, has confirmed that the Oxycodone pills his client had when he was arrested in July 2022 were prescription pills he was told to take by a doctor for chronic pain resulting from being shot earlier that year. Cohen also stated that the rapper still deals with pain from an alleged beating by prison guards in 2020. It is unclear if these incidents will have any impact on the current warrant.
XXL has reached out to Kodak's representative and attorney for comment regarding the recent arrest warrant. The rapper has had multiple legal issues in the past, including weapons charges and sexual assault charges. He has served time in prison and faced house arrest as a result of these charges.
Kodak Black first gained popularity in 2015 with his mixtape "Project Baby." He has since released several albums, including "Painting Pictures" and "Dying to Live," which both debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200 chart. Despite his legal issues, Kodak has remained popular in the hip-hop community and has collaborated with several other artists, including Lil Wayne and Cardi B.
It remains to be seen how this latest legal issue will affect Kodak's career and personal life. The rapper has faced criticism in the past for his legal troubles, and some fans have expressed concern for his well-being. However, Kodak has also received support from others in the hip-hop community, who believe he has been unfairly targeted by law enforcement. Regardless of the outcome of the warrant, Kodak's legal troubles are likely to continue to be a topic of discussion in the hip-hop world.
