KODAK BLACK GETS A PARDON FROM TRUMP

Thanks to our former President Donald Trump, rapper Kodak Black was pardoned and released from prison. Incase you forgot, the 22 year old rapper pleaded guilty to gun charges back in 2019. He was sentenced to more than three years in federal prison. He also fessed up that he fabricated information on federal forms to buy four firearms from a Miami-area gun shop on two separate occasions.

“I think it’s time for us to give some tough love in this case,” said Bruce Brown, assistant US attorney. “I just don’t see how and when he’s taken these things seriously.”

Black is a Florida native who was born to Haitian American parents as Dieuson Octave and who now goes by the legal name of Bill Kapri.

“Before his conviction and after reaching success as a recording artist, Kodak Black became deeply involved in numerous philanthropic efforts,” the White House’s official statement read. “In fact, he has committed to supporting a variety of charitable efforts, such as providing educational resources to students and families of fallen law enforcement officers and the underprivileged.”
