West News Wire: According to court documents, rapper Kodak Black has an arrest warrant out of Florida after failing a drug test while out on bail for a drug charge.

Black, whose real name is Bill Kapri, was given the warrant on Thursday as a result of his failure to show up for a planned drug test in early February and subsequent submission of a sample that tested positive for fentanyl days later, according to records.

The rapper had broken the terms of his pretrial release following a July oxycodone trafficking arrest, according to Broward County Judge Barbara Duffy, who issued the warrant.

Black has contested the charge of trafficking. On Sunday, his counsel was unavailable for comment.

In January 2020, then-President Donald Trump commuted a three-year federal prison sentence the rapper had for falsifying documents used to buy weapons. Black had served about half his sentence.

Black is nominated for the iHeartRadio Music Awards’ hip-hop artist of the year and has sold more than 30 million singles, with massive hits such as “Super Gremlin,” which reached number three on the Billboard Hot 100 last year.
