In January, Project Baby Kodak Black found himself struggling to keep away from the long arm the law. The Floridian rapper was arrested with seven charges, including grand theft firearm, two counts possession weapon or ammo, possession marijuana over twenty-grams, and more. The police were originally alerted to the illicit activity after Kodak posted a video on Instagram Live, in which he and his crew aired a video smoking blunts and playing with handguns. To make matters worse, Kodak's son was never far from the debauchery.

Kodak is currently spending time behind bars, but the news is not all bad. TMZ reports that Kodak's attorney Bradford Cohen has come through for the rapper, as a good lawyer is wont to do. Apparently, the State Florida has been convinced to drop three charges - one for possession a weapon or ammunition by a delinquent, one for grand theft a firearm, and child neglect. That doesn't mean Kodak is out the woods. His climb remains one the uphill variety. The rapper still faces charges marijuana possession and possession ammunition.
