It is conceivable that Kodak Black is the perfect example of an entertainer who is bent on ruining his professional career by saying things he shouldn’t say and doing things he shouldn’t do. The American rapper has a very strong bond with trouble. He has abundant legal issues hanging around his neck and, has severally made himself an object of public scorn because of the controversies he stirs.
To cite an instance, not long ago, the rapper went about proclaiming that he doesn’t like the colour of his skin and that he prefers light-skinned women to those who are dark and black. Of course, Mr Black was excessively grilled for the remark. Even, Amber Rose shared that the comment left her sad. But Kodak wouldn’t apologise for the insensitive thing he said. Instead, he reiterated that he doesn’t like black bitches, “I like yellow hoes,” he maintained.
Sometime in October 2015, Kodak was arrested in Pompano Beach, Florida and slammed with 9 charges which include battery, robbery, false imprisonment of a child and possession of cannabis. He was freed but would again be arrested the next year for similar crimes. He almost escaped being jailed until it emerged that he’s wanted for other crimes including criminal sexual conduct. The rapper was eventually jailed but for only four months.
