Law enforcement say they found the rapper asleep at the wheel and smelling of marijuana; they also found a Styrofoam cup they believed contained an alcoholic beverage. When he woke up, Kodak admitted to having marijuana his vehicle. 

Police say they saw white powder fall to the ground off of Kodak’s person as he exited the vehicle. Field tests determined the substance was cocaine, though the rapper claimed it was Percocet.

The arrest is just the latest legal trouble for Black. In 2020, he was sentenced to prison for making a false statement to buy a firearm. Black was also sued by two men who claim they were struck by bullets outside of a West Hollywood afterparty in 2022.
