Kodak Black was sentenced to 46 months on weapons charges last week. And now, the South Florida rapper is possibly looking at more jail time. According to the Miami Herald, the Miami-Dade State Attorney’s office has charged Kodak with two additional weapons charges for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. The rapper is being considered a “habitual violent offender” and faces up to 30 years in prison on each count. It is unclear, however, if the sentences would run concurrently.

The outlet reports that one count was filed for a gun Kodak purchased back in January. The other charge is from a gun found on his person when he was arrested at Rolling Loud in Miami in May.

As previously reported, a judge sentenced Kodak to three years and 10 months in prison on Wednesday (Nov. 13), for falsifying statements on federal forms when he purchased guns at a weapons store on more than one occasion.

Prosecutors were asking for 46 to 57 months for the rapper, while his lawyers were hoping for 37 to 44 months or less, according to court records. Kodak initially pled not guilty, but changed his plea to guilty in August.

“Young people do stupid things and I normally give them a break for that,” U.S. Judge Federico Moreno told Kodak during his sentencing. “The problem is that you have been doing stupid things since 15.”

In other news, Kodak, who reportedly got into a prison fight while awaiting his sentencing, was allegedly set up. The “ZEZE” rapper was involved in a physical altercation last month, which left one security guard injured. The fight was between Kodak and another inmate, and when a prison guard stepped in to pepper-spray Kodak, he reportedly retaliated by punching the guard and grabbing his testicles, according to an FBI agent’s testimony.

The rapper’s team said that he was set up, and they also believe that he was drugged. Sources close to Kodak told TMZ that something was put in his coffee, which he was seen drinking on surveillance camera 20 minutes before the fight. The FBI agent also testified that witnesses said Kodak appeared to be under the influence during the fight. Kodak’s attorney, Bradford Cohen, is reportedly investigating the fight.
