Kodak Black Passes GED Practice Test: 'It Feels Like the Day I Bought My First Chain'
After getting a tutor to study for his GED test while behind bars, Kodak Black passed the practice test on Tuesday. He will take the real test on June 28 and 29 before an expected September release from prison.
Kodak Black still has a few months to go before his expected release from prison for probation violations, and he's making the most of his time.
In May, he legally changed his name from Dieuson Octave to Bill K. Kapri in hopes of sparking a "fresh start" on life, and now he's working on getting his GED. Three months ago, a judge granted him access to a tutor while behind bars to study up for the test. Then at the top of the month, he announced that he would be taking the practice test on June 25.
Apparently the tutor helped, because today Kodak passed the practice test. "It feels like the day I bought my first chain," he tweeted.
Kodak was arrested in January his Florida home was raided by police during an Instagram Live broadcast. It lead to various charges against the rapper, including grand theft of a firearm, child neglect, possession of marijuana, two counts of possession of a weapon by a felon. Those counts were later dismissed after multiple court hearings and the child services investigation has also been dropped.
The Florida rapper has seemed to keep a positive attitude about his incarceration. In an April Instagram post, he thanked his attorney Bradford Cohen and wrote, "First and foremost, I want to thank the lord for this blessing in disguise which was sending me back to jail January 18, 2018." He is expected to return home from prison mid-September.
