There have been rumors swirling around for months now that the outgoing United States President Donald Trump would be pardoning Kodak Black, as well as other rappers like Lil Wayne.
Eventually, that is exactly what Trump did as in one fell swoop, Kodak and Wayne’s Federal charges were completely wiped clean.
Kodak had been going through a rough patch in prison, and a commuted sentence was to be his big savior. He’d earlier shared a few words on his Twitter account thanking the former president.
“I Want To Thank The President @RealDonaldTrump For His Commitment To Justice Reform And Shortening My Sentence,” the rapper wrote on Twitter.
According to paperwork obtained from DJ Akademiks. In the image below, it states that Kodak Black, real name Bill K Kapri, was released on Wednesday, January 20th.
However, Kodak is still dealing with a sexual assault charge in South Carolina, and authorities want him detained there until trial.
This is bad news for the artist especially since this is a state-related crime, whereas Trump’s pardons were for Federal offenses.
