Kodak Black Gets Prison Release Date

Kodak Black will remain behind bars for at least another two years.
The “Tunnel Vision” rapper has received a release date of Aug. 14, 2022. According to TMZ, he could get out a few days earlier because the 14th falls on a Sunday. Federal policy allows inmates to be released early if their release date is on a weekend.
He is currently being transferred from Miami’s Federal Detention Center to a federal prison in Oklahoma City, where he will remain temporarily. His attorney says his final destination will be a federal pen in Kentucky.
Kodak is serving 46 months on weapons charges. While at FCI Miami, he complained that prison officials were conspiring against him and that he and other inmates had to endure inhumane conditions.
“They are strategically killing me slowly in here. I have been humiliated over and over again,” he wrote in a letter posted on Instagram. “I am highly disappointed in the way they have treated not only me, but all the other inmates in this facility. With their self serving agenda they will always side with their fellow officers whether right or wrong.”
As a result, Kodak’s mother is threatening to sue the Bureau of Prisons and has hired powerhouse attorney Benjamin Crump, who repped Trayvon Martin’s family in the George Zimmerman case.
TMZ reports that Kodak was transferred to another prison because of standard procedure and not because of his complaints.
