Kodak Black Freed From Prison, Releases New Song “There He Go”
19 year old rap up and comer Kodak Black was one of the more promising of his generation, but a variety of legal issues put his career on hold.
In August 2016, he pleaded no contest to charges in Florida such as possession of a weapon by a convicted felon, possession of cannabis, and fleeing from officers, armed robbery and false imprisonment.
Under a plea agreement, he was to be placed on house arrest for a year, have five years probation, perform community service as required, and take anger management classes. He would also be permitted to tour internationally.
But that wasn’t the end of his troubles. Kodak was then extradited to South Carolina to face additional charges, this time for sexual battery.
He was finally able to post a $100,000 bail though, and just this week is (for now) a free man on a mission to clear his name and change the rap game. If found guilty though, he faces up to 30 years in prison.
Once released, he thanked everyone that helped him through this tough time, and showed his enthusiasm to be back in the game.
I'm happy to finally be going home to my family and friends. I look forward to clearing my name in the very near future. I want to thank God, my family, my team (Vanessa, Phatboy and James McMillan), Atlantic Records, my lawyers and all of my fans for your continuous love and support. I can't wait to get back to doing what I love most – working at being the illest rapper alive.
As with every artist that is able to make their way into the free world, Kodak Black’s first move? Release new music of course. ere is “There He Go” that’s gotten almost 1.5 mil plays in less than 24 hours. You can expect tons more material from him, to make up for lost time.
