Judge gives Kodak Black permission to perform at Rolling Loud New York


Atlantic Records

Kodak Black is being allowed to perform Friday at the Rolling Loud festival in New York City.

The “Zeze” rapper, who is now in a court ordered drug treatment program, was granted permission by a judge, as long as he remains in contact with his Supervised Release Officer, TMZ reports. The three-day festival kicks off Thursday, headlined by Travis Scott, J. Cole. and 50 Cent.

In September, Kodak was ordered to complete a 90-day treatment program after violating the terms of his release by failing his drug tests. He was recently granted permission to spend 30 of those 90 days outside the state of Florida.

Kodak was released from prison back in January after being pardoned by Donald Trump. He was arrested in April 2019 for weapons and drug possession and was serving a 46 month sentence in federal prison after pleading guilty to charges he falsified information while attempting to purchase guns in Miami

In April, Black avoided going back to prison after he agreed to a plea deal for a sexual assault charge in South Carolina in 2016. He received 18 months probation and must attend counseling sessions.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and on Tuesday, Kodak hosted an event in Miami to honor survivors of breast cancer, and women currently fighting the disease. More than 20 women were given wigs and cash gifts at Ives Estates Park, according to ABC Miami affiliate WPLG-TV.

“I know they’ll appreciate it,” said Black. “Show these women they’re queens, they’re strong, they’re going to get through it. Pray with them, we’re going to get through it together.”
