Kodak Black has celebrated his recent release from prison with a brand-new song, “Last Day in.”
The track arrived shortly after Donald Trump granted a commutation to Kodak as part of a series of last-minute pardons during his final days in office. The rapper had been sentenced to nearly four years behind bars after pleading guilty to weapon charges in November 2019.
So it’s no surprise that Kodak gave the former president a brief shoutout on “Last Day in.” “Trump just freed me, but my favorite president is on the money,” he raps. “All the hate and prejudice has become evident to me / Tryna quit takin’ trips with the Carbon / But I know you n***as won’t miss the chance if you could harm me, yeah.”
Elsewhere, Kodak looks towards his future, promising to create a “healthy and happy lifestyle” for himself. “I’m so proud of myself and how far I’ve come / Always kept it real, even when no one’s lookin’,” he sings.
Kodak wasn’t the only one to receive a pardon from Trump. Lil Wayne, Death Row Records co-founder Michael Harris, and former chief strategist and alt-right platform Breitbart co-founder Steve Bannon were also among the hundreds of people who Trump granted presidential clemency.
Following his pardon, Kodak thanked Trump on social media for shortening his sentence. “I Also Want To Thank Everyone For Their Support And Love. It Means More Than You Will Ever Know. I Want To Continue Giving Back, Learning And Growing,” he tweeted.
However, according to Billboard, Kodak still faces potential jail time after he was charged for sexual assault.
