Welp. The ashen troglodyte known as Kodak Black (born Bill K. Kapri) has been arrested on weapons and gun charges.


Per TMZ:

Cops say Kodak and 2 others attempted to enter the U.S. at the Lewiston-Queenston International Bridge in a Cadillac Escalade with a temporary California registration. They say Kodak was the driver, and officers discovered weed on him ... after further inspection of the vehicle they also found a Glock 9mm pistol which was undeclared by anyone in the Escalade.

There was also a Porsche traveling with Kodak’s team with 3 other individuals. The driver of the Porsche copped to having 2 loaded handguns and a third was found in the trunk ... aaaand more marijuana. A law enforcement source described one of the weapons as an “AK-style handgun with a 30-round magazine. It looks like an AK, but it’s a handgun.”

Stetson President and Madarrow Smith were both arrested for criminal possession of a weapon ... Jeantony Saintmelus — who was driving the Porsche — was booked for criminal possession of a weapon and possession of marijuana.

Kodak was coming from Canada with the intention of stepping back onto America’s soil when U.S. Customs Agents halted him. Kodak is currently in custody on a $20,000 cash bond or $40,000 bond.

The 21-year-old rapper recently angered fans when he missed a show in Boston. It looks like this big arrest caused the abrupt scheduling conflict.


According to XXL, Kodak released a diss track against T.I. entitled “Expeditiously” after the rapper originally known as The Rubberband Man chastised him for his highly inappropriate comments about Lauren London following Nipsey Hussle’s tragic killing.

In addition to these new charges, Kodak is facing a first-degree criminal sexual conduct charge involving a teenage high school student in South Carolina.

I am an old so this is the first I’ve ever heard of this person. Did he purposely style his hair like Bart Simpson?
