Broward County Commissioner Honors Kodak Black With His Own Official Day
Kodak Black's legal issues are behind him now and a positive move toward changing his image is the rapper being honored by his hometown this week.
On Friday (June 11), Broward County (Fla.) Commissioner Dale Holness declared June 11 Kodak Black Day. The Pompano Beach, Fla. native was honored with the proclamation during a charity basketball game in Coral Springs, Fla.
During the presentation of the honor, Holness spoke of Kodak's charitable endeavors and accomplishments in the field of music, listing out a number of causes the "ZeZe" rapper has given his time and money to.
"Be it proclaimed by the Board of County Commissioners in Broward County, Fla," Holness announced. "The board hereby designates Fri., June 11, 2021 as a day in Broward County, Fla. to encourage and support the philanthropic endeavors of Kodak Black."
The date also happens to be the rapper's birthday. In honor of his born day, Kodak released an EP the same day titled Happy Birthday Kodak. The four-song effort features guest appearances from Yo Gotti, Jacquees, Lil Keed and Rylo Rodriguez. This is the second project he put out in less than a month, following Haitian Boy Kodak in May.
Kodak is likely hoping his good deeds will start to get noticed more than his run-ins with the law. In January, he was freed from prison after his sentence was communicated by former President Donald Trump. He was serving a nearly four-year stint on a federal firearm charge. In April, he pleaded guilty to the assault of a teenage girl and was given probation.
