After allegedly testing positive for fentanyl earlier this month, Kodak Black will check into a drug recovery center. After the issuance of an arrest warrant for Kodak Black last week, the rapper showed up in court on Tuesday (Feb. 28).
Kodak, 25, allegedly refused to submit to a chance drug test on February 3. But, he did provide a sample during a screening on February 8 that allegedly tested positive for fentanyl.
Bradford Cohen, the lawyer for Yak, asserted at the hearing on Tuesday that it was possible for the star-struck lab technician who processed the sample to have mixed up Kodak’s pee sample while he was simultaneously working on someone else’s.
Even the lab employee appeared in court to give testimony about how it might have happened. The judge decided not to imprison Kodak for breaking the terms of his pretrial release since he could resolve the issue by providing a hair sample.
Kodak choose to spend 30 days in a drug rehab center instead. Kodak will be able to take the stage for his previously scheduled performance at the 2023 Rolling Loud California Festival this weekend according to the defense’s successful argument that his rehab enrollment should begin on Tuesday, March 7 (next week).

He intends to give some of the show’s earnings to charity. Bradford Cohen shared his opinions on the case’s coverage and the result of Kodak Black’s hearing on Instagram after the court appearance. He posted a picture of himself and Kodak exiting court on Instagram with the remark, “Of course, channel 10 got it wrong.
“Nobody turned down a hair sample. In response to a story from Local 10 News that Kodak declined to offer a hair sample in court on Tuesday, he stated, “Pretrial does not provide Hair sample services.
But I’m delighted @kodakblack will have a chance to take a break from his busy schedule and pay attention to his physical condition,” he added in reference to Yak’s impending stay in rehab.
A portion of his Rolling Loud salary will, as usual, be donated to the Meadow Pollack Scholarship Fund at Nova Southeastern Law School, which he established last year. He is a fantastic kid and a great philanthropist.
