Platinum Rapper Kodak Black Sentenced to Over 3 Years in Federal Prison on Gun Charges
The 22-year-old Black admitted in August that he falsified information on federal forms to buy four firearms from a Miami-area gun shop on two separate occasions.
Black also faces drug, weapons and sexual assault charges in other states.
Black is a Florida native who was born to Haitian American parents as Dieuson. He now goes by the legal name of Bill Kapri.
He was arrested during a Miami-area hip-hop festival in May that was marred by several violent incidents.
The rapper is known for songs such as “ZeZe” and “Roll in Peace.”
