Rapper Kodak Black arrested during traffic stop in Florida; 31 oxycodone tablets found, police say

Rapper Kodak Black was arrested during a traffic stop in Florida, authorities said Friday.

Black, whose real name is Bill K. Kapri, was driving a purple Dodge Durango with an expired license when the Florida Highway Patrol spotted the car with window tints “that appeared to be darker than the legal limit,” police said in a press release. Also, during a records check, it was found that the vehicle’s license had expired.

As police searched the car, they found nearly $75,000 in cash and a small bag containing 31 white oxycodone tablets, according to the release. Oxycodone is a type of opioid pain medication that can become highly addictive, according to the CDC.

Black, 25, was taken to the Broward County Jail, where online records show he was in custody Saturday morning.

CNN has reached out to Black’s attorney and record label for comment.

Black grew up in Pompano Beach, Florida. His hit was “Tunnel Vision”, which became his first top 10 song on the US Billboard Hot 100 charts.

In November 2019, Black was sentenced to more than three years in prison on gun charges after pleading guilty to knowingly making false written statements when he attempted to obtain firearms from a federally licensed firearms dealer.

On his final day in office, former President Donald Trump commuted Black’s gun sentence, calling the rapper an “outstanding artist and community leader,” in a statement released by the White House.
