Kodak Black Net Worth 2022: How rich is the controversial rapper?
Bill Kahan Kapri, better known by his stage name Kodak Black, is an American rapper and performer. Moments of mainstream success, along with public strife and legal concerns, marked his professional career. As of 2022, Kodak Black has a net worth of $600,000.
On June 11, 1997, Kodak was born in Pompano Beach, Florida to a Haitian immigrant named Marcelene Octave. His birth name was Dieuson Octave. Bill Kahan Kapri was his name after legally changing it.
His mother raised him in Golden Acres, a public housing community in Pompano Beach. He started rapping in elementary school and started recording songs at a nearby trap house after school.
In fifth grade, Kodak was expelled from school for fighting, and in middle school he was arrested for stealing a car. He described his past as having two options: selling drugs or rapping.
Going by the nickname J-Black, Kodak Black joined the rap group Brutal Youngnz in 2009 when he was 12 years old. He was later recruited by The Kolyons. Project Baby, Kodak Black’s first mixtape, was released in December 2013.
He gained initial fame at the age of 17 with his 2014 single, No Flockin. Drake, an acclaimed Canadian rapper, uploaded a clip of himself dancing to one of the pieces of Kodak, Skrt, in October 2015.
This helped the budding artist gain exposure and secure a deal with Atlantic Records. Skrt debuted at number ten on Billboard’s “Bubbling Under R&B/Hip-Hop Singles” category in August 2016.
Lil BIG Pac, his fourth mixtape, was released in June 2016 and became his first to chart on Billboard, peaking at number 49. Around this time, he was selected to XXL magazine’s Freshman Class of 2016.
While incarcerated due to false imprisonment and armed robbery, Kodak released the song “Can I” in 2016. His debut studio album Painting Pictures was released on March 31, 2017. Even when he met the law several times, Bill was always actively making music.
As a professional musician, he also did philanthropic projects. He has helped with the Jack and Jill Children’s Center, Paradise Childcare, the Cleburne Independent School District, the 2019 Colorado STEM filming, and more.
Kodak was arrested several times in his youth. His adult life is the same. In 2018, he was caught inside his home on various charges related to an Instagram Live video that showed him spreading marijuana and a gun around a child.
He pleaded guilty to a charge of possession of firearms in March 2020. He had already had many legal problems before that. Donald Trump forgave him in January 2021.
The rapper was still facing criminal charges of sexual assault after his release. His most recent arrest was for trespassing in Pompano Beach, Florida on January 1, 2022.
Kodak Black is currently out of prison. He was shot in the leg while leaving a party for Justin Bieber on February 11, 2022. After being hospitalized, his condition stabilized. He may be in one of his million-dollar mansions with his supposed girlfriend, model and fellow rapper Essence.
