Kodak Black says his GPS led him astray.
The “ZEZE” rapper was arrested for weapons and drugs possession at the United States-Canada border on Wednesday night (April 17). Black, whose real name is Bill Kapri, was charged with criminal possession of a weapon and unlawful possession of marijuana after he and three other men tried to enter the U.S. the Lewiston-Queenston Bridge.
Now Kodak is revealing why he tried to cross the border in the first place. He blames the navigation system in his car for leading him into Canada. While driving himself from Detroit to Boston, he entered the destination into his GPS, which gave him the most direct route through Canada and back to New York and onto Massachusetts.
But he had no idea he was leaving the country and didn’t realize it until he was asked to present a passport at the Canadian border. At that point, there was no turning back so they stayed on the route.
Police allegedly found marijuana and a Glock 9mm pistol in the Cadillac Escalade driven by Kapri. They also found two loaded handguns and a third in the trunk of a Porsche, driven by one of his associates.
Kodak was eventually released from custody after posting $20,000 bail and hid behind a fan of cash as he left jail. He was forced to cancel his shows in Boston and Connecticut on Wednesday and Thursday. He has a concert in Philly tonight, which is scheduled to go on as planned.
