Kodak Black has been sentenced to 46 months in prison and three years of supervised release on federal weapons charges. The 22-year-old, who had a US number one album last December, admitted falsifying information on background forms to buy four guns.
He was arrested before his set at Miami’s Rolling Loud festival in May. On Instagram he wrote, “Hold It Down While I’m On Lock. Calling Shots From The Box #Literally.”
In August, Black pleaded guilty to making false statements on federal forms when he purchased firearms at a weapons store in January and again in March.
“Young people do stupid things,” U.S. District Court Judge Federico Moreno told Black. “But the problem is that you’ve been doing stupid things since you were 15.”
While behind bars last month, Black was involved in a prison fight at Miami’s Federal Detention Center that left one guard hospitalized. He allegedly attacked a corrections officer, who must undergo surgery after Kodak grabbed his testicles.
