On Tuesday, February 28, Kodak Black appeared in court after an arrest warrant was issued over testing positive for Fentanyl. The rapper was ordered to spend 30 days in a rehabilitation facility after violating the conditions of his bail by failing to show up for a random drug test on February 3.

Authorities claim that when Kodak finally came in on February 8, he tested positive for Fentanyl. An arrest warrant was reportedly issued by a Broward County judge. At the hearing on Tuesday, Kodak's lawyer, Bradford Cohen, made an argument that the lab worker who processed Kodak's urine sample may have mistakenly switched it with someone else's, as he was reportedly starstruck while working on the sample. The lab worker even appeared in court to testify that this could have been a possibility.

During the hearing, the rapper was well-spoken as he explained that the situation was all a mix-up. The judge gave the rapper an opportunity to clear up the ‘mix-up' by providing a hair sample to conduct a drug test. However, Kodak refused, instead opting to check into a rehab facility.

Despite the judge's decision, Kodak can still hit the stage and perform at Rolling Loud in this weekend! Judge Barbara Duffy allowed the rapper to start his 30-day rehab after the festival, thanks to his defense's request. Kodak's rehab starts on Tuesday, March 7.

During the hearing, the judge told Yak, “You better get it together.” This is not Kodak's first brush with the law, as he has had multiple legal issues over the past few years. It remains to be seen whether this stint in rehab will help Kodak get his life back on track.
