Kodak Black Drug Possession Charges Dismissed

The good news for Kodak comes after a hearing was held to address the rapper’s motion to have the charges thrown out on Feb. 9. Judge Barbara Duffy sided with Yak’s legal team on one count and has dismissed the charge of possession of Oxycodone, XXL confirmed via the Broward State Attorney’s Office.

Kodak Black was initially arrested on Dec. 7, 2023, in Plantation, Fla. after cops saw him illegally parked and claimed he tried to conceal a white powder they initially claimed was cocaine. The South Florida rapper was charged with cocaine possession, evidence tampering and a traffic violation for double parking. A week later he was taken into custody for possibly violating his probation. Tests later revealed the white substance was Oxycodone, which Kodak is prescribed to have. The cocaine possession charge was later changed to Oxycodone possession and has now been dismissed altogether.

XXL has reached out to Kodak Black’s attorney and the Federal Detention Center in Miami for comment.
