Why Is Kodak Black Caught Up in a Legal Case?

Yak’s status conference is related to his June arrest for skipping out on a drug test, which violated the conditions of his pretrial release. He was subsequently released on $175,000 bond.

The 26-year-old rhymer was initially arrested on July 16, 2022, on charges of trafficking in oxycodone and possession of a controlled substance without a prescription in addition to driving with an expired driver’s license and tags. He was released on $75,000 bond. Then, back in February of 2023, a warrant was issued for his arrest after he failed a drug screening. A judge allowed him to spend 30 days in a drug-rehab facility.

Although Kodak is enjoying himself in Italy, it appeared he suffered a medical emergency last week.

On Aug. 3, TikTok user ashmillernarian posted a video on the platform that shows EMTs rushing the “Zeze” rhymer into a hospital on a stretcher. In the clip, Kodak appeared to be conscious and has one arm covering his eyes and one leg lifted up. He is pushed through the entrance past nearly a dozen people. “Y’all Pray for Yak,” is written over the video, which is captioned with the hashtags, “#OD #KodakBlack #Prayers #Fyp #BrowardHealth.”
