One of the sad truths about skyrocketing to a new level of fame is the inevitable fact that one will begin to have just as many rumors surrounding them as they do fans.
Most recently, Kodak Black found himself a victim of the darker variety of unfortunate rumors, with false reports surfacing that he had been shot dead while in his hometown of Pompano Beach, Florida.
To make matters worse and add fuel to the fire, a video clip from the alleged crime scene also began to circulate online, sending into a frenzy posting concerned tweets tagged with #PrayForKodak.
Especially considering the amount of talent 2016 took from us, the rumors that the rapper had been shot dead triggered an intense and emotional reaction from fans.
Luckily, this time, the rumors were denied by his representatives — Kodak Black is doing just fine.
