Kodak Black Is A Free Man

By on January 22, 2021

After Kodak Black received a commutation of his prison sentence by former President Trump earlier this week, the Florida rapper has officially been released from prison.

According to the Bureau of Prisons inmate database, Kodak was released from USP Thompson federal prison in Illinois on Wednesday (Jan. 20). Following his official release, his attorney, Bradford Cohen, has offered an update on the 23-year-old rhymer’s current status.

“He is out and has been out. His plans are to decompress for a period and take it all in. He is appreciative to the president and his team for giving him this chance,” Cohen told XXL on Friday (Jan. 22).

Kodak is still being sought after by prosecutors in South Carolina for his 2016 rape case.

Kodak Black being released from federal custody comes about two weeks after reports surfaced online that Trump was considering pardoning Kodak and Lil Wayne. Before this, Kodak said he’d donate $1 million to charity if he was pardoned and his wish was granted a couple of months later.

On Wednesday (Jan. 20), the White House announced that Kodak was among 70 other people who had their prison sentences commuted before Trump officially bid the Oval Office farewell.

After news of Kodak Black’s shortened sentence became public knowledge, he expressed his gratitude for the former president via social media.
