XXL has since confirmed the rapper's release through a representative at the Broward County Sheriff's Office. Complex has reached out to a rep for Black and will update when available.
The Painting Pictures artist was apparently quick to jump on Instagram Live following his release:
In May, Kodak Black was sentenced for violating the terms of his house arrest. Black violated his house arrest terms by attending a boxing match, visiting a Miami-Dade strip club, and “other places” without prior authorization of a probation officer. Though he was sentenced to jail time for the violation, he was also given the opportunity to be released within 30 days upon successful completion of a life skills course. Prior to the sentencing, Black fired two of his attorneys.
In a separate case, Kodak Black is accused of sexual battery against a woman in a Florence, South Carolina hotel room following a show. In the arrest warrant, Black (Dieuson Octave) is accused of forcing the victim “onto the bed in the room and then onto the floor of the room.” Black is also accused of biting the woman. A sexual assault kit, the Sun Sentinelreported in November, confirmed the victim's injuries.
Black was removed from Future's Nobody Safe Tourin April.
The verdict of an alleged February incident that featured frequently in trouble rapper Kodak Black has been reached. On Wednesday, a Florida judge reportedly found him guilty of five counts of violating his house arrest; however, the Sun Sentinel reporter Brett Clarkson tweeted it still unknown if the ruling will extend Kodak's jail time. He will return to court on May 4.
Judge finds that Kodak Black is guilty of five counts of willfully and substantially violating his house arrest.
The 19-year-old rapper was accused of punching and kicking a 34-year-old woman at a Miami-Dade strip club called “Club Climaxx.” The Florida Department of Corrections then added that incident to their list of claims that Kodak had violated his parole.
The assault is said to have occurred around 3 a.m. on Feb. 2, while the victim was at her shift as a club bartender. She told police that he “approached her and started acting belligerent.” After she pushed him away he “began to punch her numerous times all over her body and then kicked her, stopping shortly after.”
She reported the altercation to the cops during her shift on Feb. 3, where it was listed as misdemeanor battery.
Kodak is already in jail without bail for violating his house arrest, and is also facing allegations that he sexually assaulted a female fan in South Carolina. In addition to those legal problems, earlier this week it was also reported that Kodak grabbed the wrist of his anger management counselor after she threatened to call 911 due to his refusal to leave her class.
A Miami-Dade police detective said the investigation is still open because the accuser never showed up to the police station to finish her report:

This week, it was revealed the 19-year-old rapper was being accused of assaulting a woman at a Miami-Dade strip club back in February. The Sun Sentinel reports the victim was a 34-year-old employee of Club Climaxx, where Kodak allegedly punched and kicked her.
According to the publication, no formal charges have been filed; however, a police incident report was presented during a court hearing Tuesday. The Florida Department of Corrections has added the assault allegations to its list of claims that Kodak has violated the terms of his probation.
No formal charges appear to have been filed, but the police report indicates the case is open/pending with a detective assigned to it.
According to the report, the incident took place at 3 a.m. Feb. 2, during the victim’s bartending shift. The woman told police Kodak “approached her and started acting belligerent.” When she pushed Kodak away, “he began to punch her numerous times all over her body and then kicked her, stopping shortly after.”
The report states the woman continued to work that night, but when she started her shift the following night, she alerted the police. The allegation is listed as misdemeanor battery.
