This past weekend kicked off to a rocky start for Kodak Black, as authorities arrested him on Friday for allegedly having 31 oxycodone pills in his possession.
The arrest occurred during a traffic stop in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, just south of Kodak’s hometown.
While speaking with TMZ, law enforcement officials said the rapper driving a purple Dodge Durango, was stopped on suspicion that the vehicle’s window tint was too dark. It was also uncovered that the car’s registration had expired.
The Florida Highway Patrol officers say they smelled cannabis upon approaching the car. After searching, authorities allegedly found 31 oxycodone pills and $74,960.
As a result, Kodak Black was booked into the Broward County Jail and charged with possessing a controlled substance without a prescription, as well as trafficking oxycodone.
“Never Judge a case based on an arrest. There are always additional facts and circumstances that give rise to a defense, especially in this case. We will get him a bond today and move forward with resolving the matter quickly,” Kodak’s lawyer, Bradford Cohen, tweeted the morning after the rapper’s arrest.
The 25-year-old rapper ultimately posted bond and was released on Saturday, with Cohen telling CNN, “We negotiated a bond of $75,000, and we will move forward with resolving the matter quickly.”
Once the rapper was out of custody, he began referencing the situation on social media — sharing that he’s “Gotta Take The Wrap Off The Maybach Kuz Ion Wanna B Followed,” which was accompanied by a hashtag reading, “#RUNTHISTAG.”
He also joked about his arrest by uploading a video that was meant to replicate a news report, as the voice-over said, “Broward Sherriff’s Deputies arrest a man who they say has ‘more p***y than he can handle.'”
The mother of Kodak’s child also spoke on the “Tunnel Vision” rapper’s arrest while he was still in custody, tweeting, “If I was in the car wit bd I would of shoved them [pills] up my [vagina] that go for anybody I fw fr.”

It’s currently unclear when the rapper’s due back in court.
It’s worth adding that this situation went down just a week ahead of the Rolling Loud Festival in Miami, where Kodak is scheduled to perform this upcoming Sunday.
