POMPANO BEACH, FL (CelebrityAccess) — Rapper Kodak Black after a guest posted videos to social media that appear to show people handling marijuana and a handgun around an infant at Black’s home near Miami.
According to ABC News, the Broward County Sheriff Office reported that deputies arrested the 20-year-old rapper, whose real name is Dieuson Octave, after executing a search warrant at his Pembroke Pines home on Thursday.
