Kodak, whose real name is Bill Kapri, has an extensive history of run-ins with law enforcement going back to his first brushes with fame in 2015. In 2016, he was charged with felony criminal sexual conduct stemming from an incident follow a concert in Florence, South Carolina. He pled guilty in 2021, receiving a sentence of probation.

In 2018, he was charged with child neglect, grand theft of a firearm, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, and marijuana possession after an Instagram Live feed showed him passing weed and a gun around a small child. While three of the charges were dropped, he was convicted of both possession charges and sentenced to a year in prison. He was released in August that year thanks to credit for time served.

In 2019, he was arrested at the US-Canada border by United States Customs and Border Protection for criminal possession of a weapon, released, then re-arrested in Miami ahead of his Rolling Loud performance on additional charges stemming from that arrest, including making a false statement on a governmental form for lying on his purchase documents for the guns confiscated at the border. He was sentenced to nearly four years in prison after pleading guilty; for the original charges, he also pled guilty, receiving a concurrent sentence between two and seven years.

However, in January 2021, as he was leaving office, Donald Trump communted Kodak’s sentence in a bid to curry favor with Black voters for his eventual 2024 election run. That seemingly hasn’t stopped Kodak from continuing to flout authority; in July 2022, he was arrested again for oxycodone trafficking, although his lawyer argued that the pills were prescribed to him.
