American rapper Kodak Black’s time with the jail officers is over as he has been released from Broward County Jail after serving seven months behind bars.

He was later cleared of many of these charges but still had to serve seven months behind the bar.

The charges included two counts of probation violation, possession of marijuana, possession of a weapon, child neglect, and many other felonies.
