Kodak Black, born on June 11, 1997, is an American artist known for his work in singing, songwriting, and rapping. He has gained notoriety due to various legal issues, including charges related to firearm and marijuana possession. Despite his controversies, he has achieved popularity through hits like “Zeze” and “Roll in Peace.”
In 2020, he once again grabbed headlines due to his confrontations with fellow rappers or rivals while incarcerated. Additionally, he unveiled the title of his upcoming track, “Kill Bill,” which is set to drop in the near future.
Body Size, Appearance & More
He embodies the classic American rapper aesthetic, adorned with tattoos that cover his entire body—his arms, chest, neck, and even his face. Among these tattoos, three distinct crosses stand out, with one gracing his forehead and the other two on his cheeks. Kodak Black stands at a modest height of 5 feet 7 inches (1.7 meters) and maintains a weight of 66 kilograms.
At times, he can be spotted donning glasses, perhaps for vision correction or simply as a fashion statement. His hairstyle is quite unique, and when he used to go out, he would adorn himself with extravagant watches, chains, and clothing.
Childhood, Parents, Siblings & Education
In the late 1990s, a man immigrated from Haiti to the United States. There, he entered into a relationship, and on June 11, 1997, Kodak Black was born when his mother was 22 years old (as of 2019). Kodak’s father, who was Haitian, left him and his mother when he was just a young child.
Black was raised by his mother in Pompano Beach, Florida, United States, alongside his younger and older brothers, with his elder brother going by the name John Wicks.
During his time as a young boy, Kodak found himself associating with a troubled crowd. While attending Blanche Ely High School, he unfortunately became involved in drug sales, often carrying a firearm. He faced numerous run-ins with the law, including arrests for theft and burglary.
Kodak Black’s Controversies, partner and children
In his late teens, he was in a relationship with a girl named Maya, and they even had a child together. However, conflicts arose between them, leading to instances where they attempted to tarnish each other’s reputation. Kodak once disclosed that Maya prevented him from seeing their son.
In 2017, he found himself in a Washington hotel alongside a group of men. During this time, he went live on Instagram while appearing to be under the influence, and the group of men engaged in inappropriate sexual behavior with a woman. This incident stirred significant controversy. Subsequently, he issued an apology for his actions via a Tweet.
He has encountered legal issues involving drug-related charges, including possession of drugs such as cannabis and marijuana. In 2015, he faced one charge, and in 2016, he faced two separate charges, resulting in him serving time in prison on two occasions.
In March 2020, he was convicted of possessing firearms that were seized by the police at the Canadian-American border. Currently, he is incarcerated and may potentially serve a prison sentence of up to seven years.
