According to some new reports, one member of Kodak Black‘s team has been shot and is currently recovering in the hospital. Here are the details!
Apparently, a shooting took place outside a Tallahassee, Florida McDonald’s and the rapper’s bodyguard was injured as a result.
This was first reported by TMZ, the news outlet mentioning that the attack happened only hours after he headlined the Cultur3 Fest music festival.
Allegedly, Kodak was ‘followed by several cars attempting to cut them off as they left a nightclub.’
The rapper and his entourage stopped at a McDonald’s and ‘blocked the entrance with a car,’ while Kodak went inside to pick up their order.
At that point, the scary shooting happened, the shooter reportedly being inside one of the cars following the man.
This resulted in his security guard getting shot in one of his legs and was rushed to the hospital since one of the bullets hit an artery.
As for Kodak, he was taken away from the scene in an armored car, unharmed.
His attorney, Bradford Cohen, told TMZ that Kodak was not in the car the shooters opened fire on and his guard was inside, and not outside the vehicle.
Cohen also assured everyone that the bodyguard is now in a ‘stable condition.’
This comes only a couple of months after Kodak Black was pardoned by former POTUS, Donald Trump.
Before that, the rapper was arrested for ‘lying on background check forms while buying multiple firearms in two different incidents’ – charges he pled guilty to.
He was sentenced to no less than 46 months behind bars, which was initially supposed to end in August of 2022.
Instead, he served about half that time, being released in January of this year.
Trump argued that Kodak deserved the pardon since he was ‘deeply involved in numerous philanthropic efforts, committed to supporting a variety of charitable efforts, and donated $50,000 to David Portnoy’s Barstool Fund [while incarcerated], which provides funds to small businesses affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.’
