US HEADLINES:

Kodak Black is currently serving a 46 month prison sentence, after he pled guilty to lying on federal background check forms in order to purchase firearms. 

And in a since deleted tweet, the rapper, 23, promised to donate $1million to charity if sitting U.S. President Donald Trump agrees to pardon him.

‘If The President Them Free Me , I’m Gonna Spend 1 million on Charity within The First Year I’m Out. That’s on Everything ‼️’ wrote Kodak Black, whose legal name is Bill Kahan Kapri.

With the tweet not longer present on his Twitter page, fans of the rapper are left in the dark about the outcome of his plea.

But this is not Kodak’s first attempt at convincing Trump to commute his nearly four year sentence. 

Back in September, TMZ reported that the rapper’s attorneys Bradford Cohen and Jonathan Schwartz issued a detailed petition to the president.

According to Cohen and Schwartz, Black’s 46-month sentence is rather harsh in comparison to the average sentence of those convicted of federal weapons charges, which they claimed is 18 months.

Kodak is currently incarcerated in USP Thomson in Illinois, but he recently transferred from USP Big Sandy in Kentucky, where he claimed that he was being ‘tortured.’ 

The Wake Up In The Sky rapper is apparently welcoming the change in location, as he reportedly spoke to his lawyer and stated that the staff at Thomson were ‘more professional.’ 

Black was sentenced to 46 months in prison for his crimes in November of 2019, despite his lawyers begging United States District Judge Federico Moreno to lessen his sentence and consider his charitable contributions, as reported by the New York Times.

They also brought Kodak’s guilty plea to the forefront, in the hopes of it weighing on Moreno’s decision.

Black admitted to the court that he did lie on federal forms, while purchasing firearms on two separate occasions.

Several of the weapons, including one that happened to be in the trunk of a vehicle as Black and his team attempted to cross the Canadian border, were discovered by police, which led to Black being charged with criminal possession of a firearm.

He was also charged with unlawful possession of marijuana, the outlet detailed.

As documented by the South Florida Sun Sentinel, Kodak spoke to the judge directly, stating: ‘I do take full responsibility for my mishap.’

But the Judge Moreno was left unmoved by Kodak’s words and the points made by his lawyers in court, prior to sentencing.

‘Young people do stupid things. But the problem is that you’ve been doing stupid things since you were 15,’ he stated. 

Kodak’s deleted tweet on Friday came just two days after the rapper donated over 1,000 frozen turkeys to be distributed to the community in his hometown of Pompano Beach, Florida on Wednesday in anticipation of the Thanksgiving holiday.
