|What Happened To Kodak Black?|
Rapper Kodak Black is back in police custody. Records show he violated probation for charges stemming from a May arrest that include strong arm robbery, false imprisonment, possession of a firearm by a delinquent and fleeing or attempting to elude law enforcement. He is currently being held at Broward County Jail without bond. According to the warrant for his arrest, Kodak violated probation by “failing to remain confined to his approved residence except for one half hour before and after approved employment, public service work, or any other special activities approved by the officer on various times and dates, as evidenced from the pictures on video showing the offender at various places that were not approved.”
Kodak has had legal troubles before. He was arrested in 2015 for possession of a weapon and weed among other charges. He had a similar charge in 2016 in Florida. Recently, the Miami new times asked "is he the product of larger societal problems, having been raised on a steady diet of misogynistic rap lyrics?"
It is a fair and tough question. Should rap music be about something bigger than merely living the bling bling gangsta rap lifestyle? Should rap dare to tackle societal issues especially in our current age of Trump?
