Kodak Black Sentenced to Four Years in Jail

The rapper whose real name is Bill K. Kapri has to spend four years behind bars after pleading guilty to gun-related charges following his arrest back in May.

AceShowbiz - Embattled rapper Kodak Black has been sentenced to almost four years behind bars for federal weapons charges.

The "Zeze" MC, real name Bill K. Kapri, initially pleaded not guilty to falsifying information on federal forms to purchase three firearms in Miami, Florida, but he changed his tune in August after reaching a plea deal with prosecutors.

He had faced up to 10 years in prison for his crimes, but as part of the agreement, authorities proposed he receive a lighter sentence in exchange for his co-operation.

Kodak has since been ordered to serve the next 46 months in prison, with the following three years on supervised release, his attorney, Bradford Cohen, tells TMZ.

The rapper has been locked up since May, when he was arrested shortly before he was due to perform at the Rolling Loud music festival in Miami.

His time behind bars has already been eventful - he was involved in a fight with another inmate last month, when he kicked a guard in the groin while he was attempting to break up the altercation.

The prison official was subsequently hospitalised and had to undergo surgery as a result of the incident.
