Jail’s not going to stop Kodak Black from releasing a brand new mixtape. The rapper, who’s behind bars for charges ranging from alleged robbery to supposed drug possession, dropped “Lil B.I.G. Pac’ on June 12. Click to listen!
Kodak Black may be behind bars, but jail didn’t prevent the 19-year-old rapper from paying tribute to his heroes – Biggie Smalls and Tupac Shakur – with a new mixtape. While Kodak deals with his latest legal problems, his fans can blast his new music. They better enjoy it, because this could be the last they hear from him for a while.
Kodak dropped “Lil B.I.G. Pac’ on June 12, according to Urban Islandz, while he’s still locked up on a variety of charges. The mixtape’s cover art depicts Kodak as a baby, very much to Biggie’s debut album, Ready To Die. Kodak also gave love to Tupac by posing in a bandana similar to the one Pac would always sport while he was still alive. If Biggie and Pac were still around, they may appreciate how Kodak wasn’t letting the authorities silence his creative voice.
Sadly, Kodak won’t be able to perform any of these tracks live – not at the moment. He was arrested and taken to jail in Broward County, Florida, on May 18, according to The Boom Box. He faces eight criminal charges, including robbery, false imprisonment, marijuana possession and driving without a driver’s license. Most of these charges stem from 2015, according to the Sheriff’s Office, and Kodak (real name Dieuson Octave) was taken into custody reportedly due to open warrants.
Kodak keeps finding himself in trouble with the law. He was just busted in April 2016 on marijuana and weapons possession charges after police allegedly witnessed him purchase the drug. Busted! Prior to that, he was arrested in Oct. 2015, allegedly after police discovered he was driving with a suspended license. It seems those legal troubles weren’t just going to vanish.
Maybe Kodak can get some advice from Gucci Mane, 36. He (along with Boosie Badazz, 33) made a guest appearances on Kodak’s new mixtape. Gucci just got out of jail himself and he dropped “First Day Out That Feds” one day after getting out of prison. He also joined Big Sean, 28, Travis Scott, 24, and others on the first single from Kanye West’s, 39, Cruel Winter compilation. If there is anyone who can help Kodak out with “tha feds,” it would be Gucci.
