Kodak Black has had two charges dropped against him in Florida, allowing him some breathing room.
Finally, Kodak Black receives some good news as it is being reported that multiple weapons charges against him have been dismissed in Florida.
The rapper's lawyer Bradford Cohen stated that he had sat down with Miami-Date State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle for a discussion about his client and, apparently, he left a good enough impression of Kodak that several of his weapons charges have been dismissed.
According to The Blast, two charges of "possession of a firearm by a prohibited person" have been dropped. Together, they carry a maximum sentence of fifteen years in prison.

"At the end of the conversation [with the State Attorney], they were concerned that he couldn't get into the court-ordered drug treatment with an open case and a max security prison," said Cohen. "They agreed that the fair thing to do was to dismiss the case, so he can attend drug treatment and a lower security prison."
This is amazing news for fans of Kodak Black. The rapper is currently serving a near-four-year sentence for falsifying information on an application to purchase firearms. He is locked up in one of the most infamous maximum-security prisons in the country, Big Sandy in Kentucky.
Hopefully, this is a start on his road to freedom.
