Kodak Black is behind bars for probation violations until at least September, but he's already having an extremely productive summer.
After legally changing his name from Dieuson Octave to Bill K. Kapri and announcing that he's writing a book in May, the 21-year-old Florida native has now passed his GED test—earning high school diploma equivalency credentials.
On Instagram, he made the announcement along with a note that read, "I just received my high school diploma today and although it is a big accomplishment for me I am yearning for more. I appreciate my teachers Mr. Williams and Mr. Ward for those times when I would get frustrated you worked diligently to make sure I had the right materials and was ready for this big day. Those Saturday classes and putting in over time studying paid of. Momma I know I’m late but I got it."
Kodak's journey to getting his GED began three months ago when a judge granted him access to a tutor while behind bars. At the end of June, he passed the practice test and tweeted, "It feels like the day I bought my first chain."
Kodak is currently incarcerated after being arrested in January when his Florida home was raided by police during an Instagram Live broadcast. He was charged with grand theft of a firearm, child neglect, possession of marijuana, two counts of possession of a weapon by a felon. Those charges were eventually dropped after multiple court hearings, but he remains in jail until at least mid-September due to probation violations.
