Rapper Kodak Black can’t seem to catch a break. The Florida native was arrested on firearm charges over the weekend just before he was set to take the stage at Rolling loud Festival in Miami.
The 21-year-old “ZEZE” rapper, real name is Bill K. Kapri, was taken into custody Saturday for alleged state and federal firearm violations, according to Roberto Gonzalez with the US Marshals Office of the Southern District of Florida.
US Marshals teamed up with Miami-Dade police and federal agents from the US Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to arrest the young rapper. His arrest comes after an “extensive investigation,” the Miami Herald reported, citing US Marshals.
His arrest comes just one month after he was arrested on gun and drug charges near Niagara Falls, New York, while trying to enter the US from Canada.
Following Kodak’ arrest on Saturday, rapper Lil Wayne took to Twitter to announce that he would not perform at the festival.
“To all my fans who came to see me at Rolling Loud, I’m sorry but I won’t be performing,” Wayne said in a series of tweets. “The Festival Police (Not Rolling Loud) made it mandatory that I had to be policed and checked to get on the stadium grounds. I do not and will not ever settle for being policed to do my job and give you guys a great show. I will be at Story tonight for the afterparty and you kan katch me on tour with my bros Blink 182 this summer!”
