Kodak Black Ordered To 30 Days In Drug Rehab



On Tuesday a Broward County Court judge Barbara Duffy ordered Bill Kahan Kapri better known as the rapper Kodak Black to a drug rehabilitation facility for 30 days after he tested positive for fentanyl while awaiting trial on a drug trafficking charge.

Kodak violated bail conditions by failing to submit to a drug test on Feb. 3. When he finally submitted a sample on Feb. 8, it came back positive of fentanyl. A warrant was later issued for his arrest.

During Tuesday’s hearing, his attorney, Bradford Cohen, argued that a “star-struck” private lab technician may have mixed up the urine sample or paperwork with someone else’s. The tech who collected the sample testified in court that it’s possible the lab made a mistake.

The judge suggested a hair test, which is used to detect drug use over the past 90 days, but Kodak declined not to. On Instagram, Cohen said that the Pretrial Services Program of the Broward Sheriff’s Office doesn’t provide hair sample services.

Kodak told the judge he didn’t deserve to be in jail. “All the good deeds I do, all the good things I do, it never goes as viral,” he said. “I don’t know why they are so hungry to see me in jail.”


Broward County Judge Barbara Duffy allowed the rapper to begin rehab on March 7 so he could perform at Rolling Loud California this weekend. Kodak said he would donate a portion of his earnings to his scholarship fund.
