“Since I was 14… I wasn’t never able to catch a whole year out on the streets,” the “ZEZE” rapper said in a lengthy video post. “To stay out celebrating a year of freedom, caught that bitch. Instead of being in and out of juvie, detention center program, godamn county jail, prison, shit like that… I see everybody doing the 10-year challenge so this is a big accomplishment for me.”
“It’s very weird, like this shit weird being able to celebrate being home a year,” he continued. “But everybody got different journeys, different testimonies and shit. I’m on my own path. I’m a work in progress every day, striving to be a better man, better father, better son, better brother.”
In the now-removed caption, Kodak added, “( 1-20-21 ) I Was Released From Prison 2 Years Early & My Daughter Enter This World (1-21-22) It’s A Blessing. 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 !!!! It’s Lit.”
According to TMZ, Kodak welcomed his new daughter with real estate agent Maranda Johnson. The child is the couple’s first baby together. Kodak also has a 6-year-old son named King from a previous relationship.
As reported by REVOLT, Trump pardoned Kodak before he left office last year. Giving Kodak yet another reason to celebrate, the 24-year-old also learned that trespassing charges recently levied against him were dropped by Broward County prosecutors last week.
“I think they made the arrest so they could search him and search his vehicle that was legally parked and try to find something that was a bigger charge than trespassing,” Kodak’s lawyer Bradford Cohen said about the dropped charges. “I think it was embarrassing that they ended up arresting him for trespass and the case was never filed on because there was no probable cause to make the arrest.”
