Kodak Gets Up To Seven Years Behind Bars, But Their Is An Upside...


The 'Wake Up In The Sky' rapper was arrested after he drove a Cadillac Escalade across the Lewiston-Queenston International Bridge into the United States from Canada with three other men in his truck. After being pulled over, police say the men had marijuana in the car, along with a loaded handgun without a permit.

At the time, Kodak was detained by U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

This isn't the only criminal case KB is facing at this point, in November, he was sentenced to 46 months in federal prison for illegally buying a gun in Florida.

The Sentence Will Run 'Concurrent' To His Federal Case


Luckily, in this case, the New York prison sentence will run concurrently to his federal prison time, so he will not tack on any years to his time behind bars.

The rapper also decided to write an open letter from his prison cell, which was shared by his team on Instagram.

"RoadRunner Bill ! Ya so I Put dat S***in gear..Im shiftin good right na, in a literal sense!" Kodak writes in the beginning of the letter. "DATPART Lol. I went to DHo for the shot.
