Florida rapper Kodak Black is free at last, free at last, free at last. The hip-hop newcomer is breathing fresh air after serving three months behind bars.
According to reports, Black completed a voluntary life skills course which made him eligible for an early release.
Kodak was released Monday morning from Broward County Jail after serving 97 days of a 364 day sentence for violating house arrest. He's now back on house arrest for another year. He'll need to request permission from his probation officer and court if he wants to travel anywhere for work, even inside Florida. (TMZ)
In early May, news went viral of Black landing a year-long jail sentence following a court appearance.
"If you can find it in the kindness of your heart, your honor, I am asking you to give me a chance to prove my worth to the court. To be the person my community expects me to be," Octave told the judge. The judge ordered that Octave, 19, must complete an anger management/life skills course. If he completes the course successfully, his sentence will be commuted from 365 days to 180 days, with credit for time served. That means he could be back to making hits within weeks. (Local 10 News)
A few days prior, rap star Meek Mill spoke on Kodak's publicized case.
A week prior, Black's attorney Raven Ramona Liberty came forward to speak out on his publicized jail case.
"I have the utmost faith in God that he will be out on the fourth and will start the tour," Liberty said, adding that the rapper is only 19 years old. "Fortunately he has the money to pay for attorneys. But this happens all the time to young men in his situation. I don't think sitting in jail is the correct punishment." (Bossip)
