Kodak Black is wiping the slate clean by dumping his name.
While Kodak Black will still have his famous stage name, he’s legally changing his government name.
Born Dieuson Octave, the 20-year-old MC’s new name is Bill K. Kapri. His attorney Bradford Cohen says that it’s intended to give him a “fresh start” following a string of legal issues.
In addition to this, authorities dropped a child services investigation against him. The agency started the inquiry after his January arrest when his child was found in a home with marijuana and gun ammunition.
Bill is currently serving time in jail over probation violations and could be out by October. In the meantime, he is reportedly working towards his GED and taking parenting classes.
