Kodak Black ordered into rehab following positive drug test in federal gun case
Florida rapper Kodak Black, whose legal name is Bill K. Kapri, has been ordered to spend 90 days in a residential drug treatment program for violating his federal supervised release in the form of a positive drug test, recently filed documents reveal.
Kapri, 24, appeared in court via video conference on the 27th, where he learned his stay in the treatment program would be extended. It wasn’t clear which specific drug the rapper tested positive for, and documents say he’s already in the program.
Kapri was sentenced in 2019 to about four years behind bars after he pled guilty to one count of making a false statement in connection with the acquisition of a firearm. Court papers reveal he admitted to completing ATF form 4473 at Lou’s Police Distributors, a federally licensed gun dealer and police equipment distributor in Hialeah, Florida.
On the form, Kapri falsely claimed he was not under indictment in an unrelated matter and said he had never been convicted of a felony — both of which disqualify him from being able to purchase or possess a gun.
In January of 2021, Kapri’s sentence was commuted to time served by former President Trump. The “Tunnel Vision” rapper was out of jail, but his three years of supervised release still remained, which eventually culminated in the drug violation seen earlier this week.
Kapri recently announced that he and his girlfriend are expecting a child, who will arrive later this year or in early 2022. The rapper has released three projects since he got out of jail and plans to go on tour with NBA Youngboy, who is staring down a federal gun case of his own.
