Kodak Black is at the center of controversy yet again, as he was arrested at the U.S.-Canada Border with the charge of possessing a weapon and marijuana. According to a report from the Buffalo ABC affiliate WKBW, the Florida rapper, real name Bill Kapri, was detained with three other men by border officials before crossing the Lewiston-Queenston Bridge. Police found a Glock 9mm and marijuana in the car he was driving in with a number of weapons found in the second car. The charge led to criminal possession of a second-degree weapon and unlawful possession of marijuana and Black was sent to Niagara County Jail on a $20,000 cash bond or $40,000 bond. He managed to post bail with a scheduled court date later next month (May 8).
A spokesperson for the Customs and Border Portal released the following statement:
“On Wednesday, two vehicles occupied by U.S. Citizens were encountered at the Lewiston-Queenston Port of Entry. During the initial inspection, the U.S. citizens admitted to being in possession of marijuana and firearms. During a secondary inspection, it was revealed that the weapons were possessed unlawfully in New York State and subsequently the marijuana, firearms and subjects were turned over to the New York State Police for further processing. U.S. Customs and Border Protection Office of Field Operations continuously works in collaboration with our law enforcement partners, which include federal, state and local agencies.”
Kodak was scheduled to perform yesterday at the House of Blues in Boston, in which he no-showed the event due to his arrest. Fans in attendance were upset as they waited for over an hour until it was announced he wasn’t going to perform. This adds to a litany of incidents involving the “ZEZE” rapper as his 2016 sexual assault case still looms over him.
The Project Baby artist found himself in hot water last week after making comments towards Lauren London, offering to “give her a whole year” in grieving for the late rapper, Nipsey Hussle. The remarks drew criticism from T.I., in which the two also gone into a war of words, culminating in Kodak releasing a diss track towards the Atlanta artist.
