There’s another entry in rapper Kodak Black’s comprehensive bookkeeping of legal problems. The artist was arrested in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on Friday after dozens of oxycodone pills were discovered in his vehicle during a traffic stop.
The 25-year-old rapper was driving a Dodge Durango in Fort Lauderdale when police pulled him over for a suspected illegal window tint. Police claimed they smelled marijuana, which resulted in a search of his truck. This turned into 31 bullets and $74,960 in cash.

The license and tag of the vehicle had also expired. Black was taken to the Broward County Jail, with charges pending. According to a report by TMZ.
Black, born Dyson Octave and who later changed his legal name to Bill Kahn Capri, has had several run-ins with the law. He is known for hits such as “No Flockin'” and “Roll in Peace” and has sold over 30 million singles since 2014.
Earlier this year, Black was identified as one of three men shot outside a Justin Bieber after-party in West Hollywood, according to law enforcement officials and various media accounts. Black fled the spot after the incident, but later called the police from one place. He was shot at a location nearby for reporting. President Donald Trump commuted Black’s three-year federal prison sentence for falsifying documents used to buy weapons at a Miami gun store on his last day in office in 2020. At the time, Black had served half. his punishment. In April, Black was sentenced to probation for assaulting a teenage girl in a South Carolina hotel room. He accepted a deal to dismiss the original rape charge and pleaded guilty to first-degree assault. He was also charged with trespassing on Fort Lauderdale property earlier this year.
