Kodak Black‘s Florida drug possession charges have been dismissed, but the rapper will still remain in federal lockup for the time being.
According to The Associated Press, the charge was dismissed on Friday (February 9), after Judge Barbara Duffy told prosecutors that they couldn’t confirm, or refute, whether the rapper (real name Bill Kapri) had a prescription for oxycodone.
The drug, which was found in Kodak Black’s possession when he was first arrested back in December, was what prompted the initial arrest and subsequently caused his bond in a separate federal matter to be revoked.
Kodak Black’s attorney, Bradford Cohen, is trying to get his client’s separate tampering charge dismissed as well. Cohen also said that he hopes the dismissal of his tampering charge will prompt the Miami federal detention center to free his client.
