Kodak Black is now officially a free man. According to documents obtained by Complex, a Florida judge has terminated Black’s probation.

The rapper, who recently changed his real name to Bill K. Kapri from Dieuson Octave, was released from prison on August 18 after serving seven months of his yearlong sentence.

The sentence came after Kodak was taken into custody and charged with grand theft of a firearm, possession of marijuana, possession of a weapon by a felon, and child neglect without great bodily harm, after law enforcement claimed they witnessed him smoking weed surrounded by weapons on Instagram Live. Most of those charges were eventually dropped, and he instead pleaded guilty to driving with a suspended license and “associating with people committing crimes.”

During his time in prison, Black’s lawyer Bradford Cohen claims the rapper rehabilitated in the process of getting his GED, taking parenting classes, and even writing a book.

The termination of his probation means this legal case is officially closed. Cohen previously stated that Kodak's probation would end as soon as he was released.

Since his release, Kodak already began filming what appears to be a new music video. There’s a chance he could still face sexual battery charges brought against him in South Carolina. For now, Kodak is focused on putting out new music, and turning down big checks to do so.
