AceShowbiz - Kodak Black had many things to celebrate recently. When marking one year of being home following his prison release, the "Wake Up in the Sky" rapper announced that he has welcomed his daughter to the world.
The emcee broke the news through an Instagram video. "Since I was 14 … I wasn't never able to catch a whole year out on the streets," he began his message. "To stay out celebrating a year of freedom, caught that b***h. Instead of being in and out of juvie, detention center program, gotdamn county jail, prison, s**t like that … I see everybody doing the 10-year challenge so this is a big accomplishment for me."
"It's very weird, like the s**t weird being able to celebrate being home a year," the Florida native went on reflecting in the Friday, January 21 clip. "But everybody got different journeys, different testimonies and s**t. I'm a work in progress every day, striving to be a better man, better father, better son, better brother."
Kodak, who wore a custom MAGA hat in the footage, also thanked former President Donald Trump for commuting his prison sentence. "I wanna thank Donald Trump, the honorable president," he said. "Without him, I wouldn't be here with y'all."
In the caption of the post, Kodak divulged, "( 1-20-21 ) I Was Released From Prison 2 Years Early & My Daughter Enter This World (1-21-22) It's A Blessing." He also revealed his baby girl's name, "Queen Yuri Kapri Is Heaven Sent She Blessing Me She Has Every Lil Thing That I Was Missing."
"I'm Dam Near Perfect But She Is … What A Coincidence I'm Home A Whole Year Finally After Not Being Able To Be Free A Whole Year Since I Was 14 !!!!" the proud dad further gushed. "It's Lit."
Kodak shares his newborn with real estate agent Maranda Johnson. The 24-year-old rapper, who recently claimed that he is single, is also a father to 6-year-old son King from a previous relationship.
