A Florida judge issued an arrest warrant for rapper Kodak Black after he failed a court-ordered drug test while awaiting a narcotics trafficking trial, according to court records.
Black, whose legal name is Bill Kapri, tested positive for fentanyl in early February, court documents show.
Broward County Judge Barbara Duffy issued the warrant and wrote that the rapper had violated the conditions of his pretrial release for an oxycodone trafficking charge from July.

Black has been accused of drug trafficking after he was pulled over by Florida cops who searched his car and found a small bag with 31 pills, later confirmed to be oxycodone, as well as nearly $75,000 cash in the vehicle.
Black had pleaded not guilty to the trafficking charge. His attorney was not immediately available to comment on Sunday.
The July arrest is not the rapper’s first run-in with the law.
He was serving a prison a sentence in 2020 for falsifying documents used to buy weapons when then-President Donald Trump commuted his three-year term — freeing him after the rapper served about half that time.
His legal woes started years earlier when he reportedly stole a car while he was in middle school.
Black is nominated for the iHeartRadio Music Awards’ hip-hop artist of the year and has sold more than 30 million singles, with massive hits such as “Super Gremlin,” which reached number three on the Billboard Hot 100 last year.
