Florida rapper Kodak Black is expected to spend the next six months behind bars. The hip-hop star has avoided a lengthy bid in exchange for doing a little time on a probation violation.
On Tuesday, Black had gun and marijuana possession charges dropped from his case but still received hard time.
Octave, who has been in jail since Jan. 18, entered an open plea in court today to previous charges of violating probation while driving with a suspended license and associating with people engaged in criminal activity. He was sentenced to 364 days in jail, with credit for time-served. Octave will now be released from jail in six months. (Local 10 News)
Recently, reports surfaced about Black possibly getting placed in protective custody.
Protective custody is usually reserved for high profile incarcerated people like celebrities, informants, former cops/lawyers, and also sex offenders who are at risk of being accosted in jail or causing a ruckus otherwise. While the prospect of being in a jail’s general population setting would be daunting for some, Kodak has been incarcerated before and would likely feel a better peace of mind in the social setting than being isolated, as unorthodox as that sounds.

In March, a report emerged about KB getting released from solitary confinement.
Kodak (born Dieuson Octave) and his lawyer objected to the move, and countering that the artist should at least be able to see his tutor and have access to his laptop, which he’s using to study for his GED. Evidently it was decided that Kodak could instead be released early back into the general population, and a prison official confirmed to XXL on Monday that he’s no longer forced into solitude.

Recently, a message went to Kodak’s Twitter page saluting R&B singer Chris Brown for blessing him with a financial hookup.
Fresh out the bing… that boy @chrisbrown just dropped 10 racks on my books, that’s love.
