Kodak Black, scheduled to be released in November of 2022, reached out to federal prosecutors himself in an attempt to reduce his prison sentence. The Florida rapper penned a letter to the feds, requesting early release from prison but his request was denied.
Kodak tried to explain why he should be released, writing:
With all due deference, I come in truth. I acknowledge my mistakes and I take full responsibility for my actions. I am not a evil or demented person. I am salvageble (sic) and I have the ability and potential to live a prosperous and positive life.Kodak Black
But the judge did not feel the rapper had made a clear enough case.
(Kodak Black) has not presented ‘extraordinary and compelling reasons’ supporting his request for release. Stated more correction, (Kodak Black) has not presented ANY reason supporting his request for release. He merely states he is not an evil person and promises to participate in community-based programs aimed at helping the ‘younger generation.’ That simply is inadequate pursuant to the statute.Assistant U.S. Attorney Bruce O. Brown
Kodak Black pleaded guilty in August 2019 to making a false statement to obtain a firearm. He was sentenced to 46 months, which is the minimum of the suggested sentence according to federal sentencing guidelines. He is currently incarcerated in USP Thomson Illinois. The Pompano Beach rapper has tried almost everything he can to get out early but he will remain behind bars for the foreseeable future.
