KODAK BLACK GIVES BACK TO HIS HOMETOWN!
Written by torresanz on July 5, 2021
Kodak Black has been in a charitable mood since getting out of prison in January. Even behind bars, the Pompano Beach, Florida native was tapping into his philanthropic spirit and now, he’s helping dozens of people beat the summer heat.
The rapper purchased 100 air conditioning units for around $12,500 and donated them to residents at the Golden Acres Projects in his hometown. He went door-to-door with the units over the weekend, presenting residents with the generous gift, many of whom were brought to tears.
Kodak teamed up with Franky Pierre, who runs the Philanthropic Work and Outreach charity, to make his vision come to life.
Kodak Black’s willingness to give back played an integral role in his release from prison. As one of Donald Trump’s final acts in the Oval Office, he issued presidential pardons to both Kodak and Lil Wayne, along with dozens of other people. Kodak was released from prison after serving over a year in jail for falsifying information on federal forms to buy four firearms from a Miami gun shop on two separate occasions.
The 24-year-old was originally sentenced to 46 months behind bars and expected to remain in prison until 2022 after federal prosecutors denied his request to have his sentence reduced in January. In one of his numerous social media pleas to Trump, Kodak offered to donate $1 million to a charity if he pardoned him before leaving office.
And guess what?
Kodak kept his promise!
