Rapper Kodak Black had hopes on being released sooner than later. According to federal prosecutors, his request has been denied. It’s been said that there is no reason for his release to be granted. Following that, there was no legal action to back it. Black wrote a compassionate letter stating why he should no longer be behind bars.
“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.”
Assistant U.S. Attorney Bruce O. Brown has this to say regarding the denial.
“(Kodak Black) has not presented ‘extraordinary and compelling reasons’ 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.”
Back in August 2019 the rapper plead guilty to making a false statement to acquire a firearm. The judge sentenced him to 46 months. Bill Kapri which is Black’s legal name is currently incarcerated in Thomas, Illinois at USP and is not due to be released until November 2022.
