Kodak Black has just been released from prison and was in a giving mood when he promised to donate $1,000,000 toward charity if Donald Trump freed him from prison. But the Florida rapper deleted the tweet where he pledged to donate a million bucks.
Kodak tweeted on November 27 of last year,
If the president them free me, I’m gonna spend 1 million on charity within the first year I’m out. That’s on everythingKodak Black
The tweet was quickly deleted after Kodak and several music industry figures were pardoned by Donald Trump on his way out. Now, his lawyer is stepping into the arena, saying it was a legal move and nothing more.
I didn’t think I had to address this because it’s a non-story. A statement promising something for something in exchange is not appropriate, and although Kodak has always given charity his whole career and will continue to do charity, not in exchange for anything, some think this is a story. It isn’t.Kodak Black lawyer Bradford Cohen
The White House statement reads that Kodak has “committed to supporting a variety of charitable efforts, such as providing educational resources to students and families of fallen law enforcement officers and the underprivileged. In addition to these efforts, he has paid for the notebooks of school children, provided funding and supplies to daycare centers, provided food for the hungry, and annually provides for underprivileged children during Christmas.”
Kodak was indicted on a felony charge of first-degree sexual misconduct. The case was disrupted last year due to the coronavirus pandemic, which suspended jury trials. But prosecutors haven’t forgotten about it, especially since Black is no longer in federal custody.
