Kodak Black Says He Will Donate $1 Million to Charity If President Trump Pardons Him
On Friday (Nov. 27), the incarcerated rapper offered yet another plea for his freedom to Trump, who is on his way out the door as POTUS. Kodak claims he'll donate a hefty sum of money to charity if Trump helps him.
"If The President Them Free Me , I’m Gonna Spend 1 million on Charity within The First Year I’m Out. That’s on Everything," Kodak tweeted.
This is Kodak's latest plea to President Trump regarding the rapper's prison time. Back in September, the South Florida rapper had his lawyers reach out to Trump about getting his sentence commuted, citing an unfair sentence and alleged abuse from prison personnel.
"It details why we feel it would be appropriate in his situation," Kodak's lawyer, Bradford Cohen, said of the petition at the time. "We still have the pending case in Washington DC against the BOP and the one in Miami against the US Marshall Service."
Back in April, Kodak requested an in-person meeting with Trump. "Tell Donald Trump to pull-up on me, I got a brilliant idea," Kodak wrote in an open letter to No. 45 that was posted on Instagram. "I thought of something back in Miami but I dismissed it ['cause] I be thinking I b crazy sometimes. This shit keep following me tho! This ain't got nothing to do with my wrongful conviction, come see me I got my corona mask on."
According to the Federal Bureau of Prisons, Kodak is scheduled to be released on Nov. 3, 2022, after serving three-and-a-half years on federal firearms charges. However, his lawyer believes he could be released to a halfway house as early as next year.
Also, Kodak Black faces another legal battle stemming from 2016. The rapper, born Dieuson Octave but changed his name to Bill K. Kapri in 2018, is accused of raping a woman on Feb. 7, 2016. The accusations against him include pinning down and biting the alleged victim, described as "an adult-age high school student," in addition to rape while in a hotel in Florence, S.C.
"According to investigators, on or about February 7, 2016, Octave is alleged to have engaged in the sexual battery of the victim at a hotel located at 2120 West Lucas Street, Florence, SC," South Carolina's Florence County Sheriff's spokesman Major Michael Nunn said in a statement in August of 2016.
A trial was scheduled for spring 2019, but has since been continued. No new date has been set.
