The 'Zeze' rapper, who is charged with making a false statement in the acquisition and attempted acquisition of a firearm, is facing up to 10 years in prison and a fine of $250,000 if convicted.

AceShowbiz - A Florida judge has revoked rapper Kodak Black's bond after branding him a "danger to the community."

The embattled "Zeze" MC was arrested shortly before he was set to perform at the Rolling Loud music festival in Miami on 11 May, and he was subsequently indicted by a grand jury on charges of making a false statement in the acquisition and attempted acquisition of a firearm.

He pleaded not guilty to the federal weapons charges earlier this month, when the judge overseeing the case provisionally agreed to set his bond at $550,000 (£435,500), but prosecutors challenged the decision, insisting he has proven time and time again that he is unable to stay out of trouble while on bail.

The case returned to a U.S. District Court on Wednesday, May 29, when Judge Federico Moreno agreed with the authorities' assessment of Kodak's pattern of behaviour, and declared he would be a "danger to the community" in Florida if he was released.

The 21-year-old will now be held behind bars until he stands trial on the weapons charges this summer.

Kodak, who goes by the name Bill K. Kapri, is facing up to 10 years in prison and a fine of $250,000 (£198,000) if convicted.

He is already awaiting trial for a separate case of sexual assault in South Carolina, while federal authorities believe he may have been involved in a Florida shooting in March, too.

He is also facing additional drug and weapon charges following an April arrest while trying to cross the border between the U.S. and Canada.
