On Wednesday night (April 24), Kodak Black's tour buses were raided by the FBI and local police, TMZ and The Blast reports.

The raid reportedly happened while the 21-year-old rapper was on stage performing at The Anthem in Washington, D.C. According to The Blast, law enforcement officials may have acted swiftly based upon an anonymous tip received that evening. However, Black was not arrested in the incident.

Police allegedly discovered weapons on at least one of the tour buses that were searched and "multiple entourage members" were apprehended at the scene.

FBI agents also attempted to get inside of the venue where Kodak (real name Bill K. Kapri) was performing but were denied entry by the promoters, TMZ claims. As of press time, it remains unconfirmed if any of the vehicles that were raided actually belonged to Black or "other members" on his tour.

On early Thursday morning (April 25), a rep for the "ZEZE" rapper told the site he was "en route to NYC for his sold-out show tomorrow night at United Palace."

Black's recent run-in with the law comes one week after he was arrested on drugs and weapons charges at the U.S. border. In that incident, police allegedly discovered marijuana and a Glock 9mm pistol in the Cadillac Escalade he was driving at the time.

Three other members of his entourage were also detained after a search was conducted on their vehicles. Each received a felony charge for criminal possession of a weapon and a misdemeanor charge for possession of marijuana. Black was later released on $20,000 cash bond.

As previously reported, his recent arrest may spell out more bad news for the controversial rapper. Prosecutors in South Carolina are reportedly reviewing whether the Florida native violated the bond conditions of his sexual misconduct case from 2017. If so, they plan to move ahead with a hearing that would ask that a judge revoke his bond.

Black's rape trial was scheduled for this month but was reportedly postponed at his request. He faces up to 30 years behind bars if convicted.
