Kodak Black donated 100 Air Conditioners to housing project residents in his hometown Pompano Beach Florida. He has continued with his charity work only six months after leaving prison. The artist has served a year in prison for falsifying firearms licensing documents and using them to purchase a firearm in a Miami Guns shop on two different occasions. Since his arrest and sentencing, the artist has been engaging in Philanthropic activities which contributed to his early release after a presidential pardon.
Before President Donald Trump left the Oval Office he signed pardon applications for both Kodak Black among several other inmates. He was originally sentenced to spend 46 months behind bars until 2022 after his application to have his sentence reduced was rejected by the Federal prosecutors in January this year. Kodak Black never gave up but instead, he continued making direct pleas to President Donald Trump promising to donate $ 1 Million to a charity if he pardoned him before leaving the Oval Office.
He posted on his Tweeter handle, “If The President Them Free Me, I’m Gonna Spend 1 million on Charity within The First Year I’m Out,” “That’s on Everything.” However, the Tweet was deleted later after consultation with his lawyer Bradford Cohen who argued that “a statement promising something for something in exchange is not appropriate.” He however explained that the artist has been philanthropic enough and therefore still deserved the pardon. He also promised that he will continue doing charity but not in exchange for anything. He claimed that doing charity expecting something as payback then is not charity. The statement elicited mixed reactions as some fans maintained that Kodak black made a promise and he should honor it while others supported him that he needs to do nothing to honor the promise with the president.
