Kodak Black Shares Instagram Photo From Inside Florida Jail

Rapper Kodak Black found himself behind bars after being accused of providing false information on a gun application for a firearm linked to a shooting in Pompano Beach in March. Despite potentially facing eight years behind bars he posted a picture of himself on Instagram posing in a blue prison jumpsuit in the Florida jail. He's smiling from ear to ear, revealing either a gold grill or the yellow teeth you'd expect from a century-long cigarette addiction.

The 22-year-old has pleaded not guilty to the charges against him. Reportedly the 'Expeditiously' singer bought a 9mm handgun, a .380-caliber handgun and a semi-automatic Mini Draco weapon which seems a little OTT.

His picture came alongside the caption: "The Streets Thin Na Cuz Everybody Gettin Hung .. Lawyers Sittin Back Suckin All A N**** Funds.#SG #10TOESDOWN."

The Tunnel Vision performer received replies from other artists like' Young Scooter' (son of Old Scooter) who wrote: 'Lawyers snakes too;' and Lil Yachty wrote: 'Free a King'.

Some people took to social media to speculate that Kodak was unhappy with his legal representation. However, according to TMZ, his lawyer Bradford Cohen said the rapper was simply quoting old music.

The artist is expected to remain in custody until at least a September hearing following his arrest on May 12. He was arrested at Miami Gardens' Hard Rock Stadium during the Rolling Loud music festival. He was due to take to the stage before the arrest, but both local and federal agents were waiting for him.

In other festival news, Tiny Jag pulled out of the AfroFuture festival after hearing that white people were being charged double. She said: "A non-POC friend of mine brought to my attention that AfroFuture is requiring non-people-of-color to pay twice the amount to attend the festival as POC.

"This does not reflect the views of myself or the Tiny Jag team. I will not be playing this show. I apologize for anyone who may have been triggered or offended."

His attempt in May to be eligible for bail under strict conditions - saying he wanted to address a sexual assault charge in South Carolina - was shot down by Judge Federico Moreno, who called him a 'danger to the community' in denying bail.

Black already has a string of charges against him including drug, weapons and sexual assault charges.

In other Kodak-related news, a man in Columbia took aim at a Google Maps car in shocking footage caught on the high-resolution camera.
