Florida rapper Kodak Black was arrested at Rolling Loud Music Festival over the weekend on firearm charges.
According to Miami-Dade Police, he was taken into custody on Saturday, upon arrival to the music festival before he was able to perform. He was taken into custody on federal charges and faces legal implications from the state as well.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms was the lead on the case. U.S. Marshals explained the arrest was made following “an extensive investigation conducted by the U.S. Marshals, ATF and Miami-Dade Police Department’s North Side Gang Unit.”
Black, real name Bill Kapri, was also arrested last month on drug and weapon-related charges when he tried to cross from Canada into the United States.
His charges following Saturday’s incident have not yet been officially confirmed.
