Kodak Black Artist Syko Bob Gets 5-Year Prison Sentence For Gun Possession
Authorities just sentenced Syko Bob, signed to Kodak Black's Sniper Gang collective, to five years behind bars. Moreover, the Florida rapper (real name Cambrel Smart) pleaded guilty to a charge of gun possession back in December of 2022. While not many details surrounding this case came out, it followed a January 2022 traffic stop at around 3:00 a.m. During this pull-over for speeding on I-75 in Collier County, Florida, a Florida Highway Patrol trooper found a bag of marijuana and a loaded gun.
Furthermore, HipHopDX discovered jail record copies showing alleged charges of a DUI, carrying a concealed gun, possession of a controlled substance without a prescription, possession of more than 20 grams of marijuana, and possession of a weapon or ammo by a convicted felon. As of writing this article, Kodak Black has yet to respond to these developments on social media. However, given their close collaboration, hopefully the label boss is supporting his artist in any way possible through this tough time. Unfortunately, it's not the most dangerous headline Syko's had to face.
Syko Bob, Kodak Black Signee, Sentenced To Five Years In Prison
To elaborate, Bob was one of a few targets of a drive-by shooting in April of 2021, which assumedly targeted them directly. According to reports from The Sun Sentinel, police claimed the 29-year-old and two other men drove around Lauderhill, Florida at the time of the attack. Then, a black BMW drove close by and shot at the group. Car crashes ensued as both vehicles tried to move quickly, with someone in Syko's car allegedly shooting back. What's more is that the vehicles disappeared by the time police responded, and so they went to see the three victims in the hospital, who were rushed there by bystanders.
According to Lt. Michael Santiago, Syko and his crew "refused to cooperate with the investigation and provided no details on the events." The Sniper Gang MC took to Instagram Live to let fans know he survived unscathed. "Please stop talking about 'get well' when s**t ain't wrong," he expressed. "Don't send me s**t about no 'get well' no more when s**t ain't happen to me." Regardless, log back into HNHH for the latest news and updates on Syko Bob and Kodak Black.
