Rapper Kodak Black is wanted by Florida cops for violating his bail conditions and failing drug test… after being sued by two shooting victims
- Kodak Black has a warrant out for his arrest over a drug policy violation
- The rapper was originally arrested in July of last year for possession of a controlled substance without prescription and trafficking
- He is also being sued by two men who were ‘severely injured’ during a shooting last year that Kodak reportedly ‘escalated’
Kodak Black is currently wanted by the police in Florida for violating the conditions of his bail and failing a drug test.
According to TMZ, a judge signed off on an arrest warrant for Kodak, 25, on Thursday, and the rapper is to be taken into custody if any deputies encounter him.
The warrant was filed due to two missteps by Kodak – who was also recently sued by two shooting victims – in recent weeks.
At the beginning of February, he failed to appear at the agency he was supposed to report to for drug testing.
The agency then claimed that the following week he submitted a sample, but it came back confirming that he had drugs in his system.

It was reported that the test came back positive for traces of fentanyl, although it’s unclear how much was in his system.
Kodak was originally arrested in July of last year for possession of a controlled substance without prescription and trafficking.
Cops also revealed that they found upwards of 31 oxycodone pills in his car in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.
He posted his $75K bail but was released under the condition that he would remain drug-free.
If he is caught, there are additional orders to hold him without bail until his next hearing.
Kodak was also recently involved in another legal battle, having been sued a year after a shooting outside of Justin Bieber‘s Super Bowl afterparty.
Both the rapper and Bieber were sued by two victims of the shooting that occurred on February 12, 2022.
Mark Schaefer and Adam Rahman claimed they were struck during the shooting that happened over Super Bowl weekend and were consequently ‘severely injured.’

Sued: The 25-year-old has also been sued by two victims of a shooting that happened at Justin Bieber’s Super Bowl after party in 2022; Kodak during Paris Fashion Week in 2022
The incident had taken place just outside of The Nice Guy restaurant in West Hollywood, where Bieber was throwing a Super Bowl afterparty.
It was reported that four victims were shot, including Kodak.
However, the alleged victims suing the performers have claimed that Kodak played a major part in the escalation of the fight that occurred outside of the establishment.
Reportedly, an unknown assailant attacked someone from Kodak’s group, prompting him to get into a scuffle to protect his friend.
TMZ reported that in the lawsuit documents, the two victims claimed that the rapper had ‘escalated’ the fight, resulting in shots being fired.
Kodak’s representative, Bradford Cohen, spoke out in regard to the lawsuit and informed TMZ, ‘I have seen a lot of bad complaints in my day. This is the most poorly drafted complaint I have seen in 26 years.’
He added: ‘I expect Kodak to be dismissed from this suit fairly quickly.’
Cohen also explained that ‘there is zero specificity’ and that the victims’ rep, Gloria Allred, ‘groups the defendants all together instead of making specific allegations against each.’
Kodak’s rep concluded: ‘It’s law school 101. I am embarrassed for Ms. Allred that she actually signed her name to that complaint.’
