Kodak Black has pleaded not guilty to two new charges he was hit with last Thursday, February 22. The rapper had three of the charges (child neglect, third-degree grand theft, and possession of a weapon by a convicted felon) against him dropped; but prosecutors in Broward County, Florida added two new charges of felony possession of cannabis, and possession of ammunition by a delinquent. The 20-year-old has been behind bars since January 18, when police raided his South Florida home and took him into custody on seven charges. Black was arrested after he posted an Instagram Live video showing party guests smoking marijuana around his infant son, while another guest allegedly had a pistol near the child. Kodak has been on probation since August 2016 and isn’t allowed to have drugs or guns in his possession; he will next appear in court on May 3.
