If he doesn’t clean up his act soon, no one will ever book him for a concert again. Kodak Black’s wild ways have officially gotten old. His numerous arrests and run-ins with the law are not only lengthening his record, but the trouble is also hurting his rap career and his pockets. It’s about to, at least.
A concert promoter is suing the “Roll in Peace” artist for, essentially, being arrested too often.
Concert promotor Corey Minniefield is claiming that he’s booked Kodak several times, each time less satisfying than the last. According to Minniefield, every time he booked Kodak Black, the 20-year-old would manage to get himself arrested, shredding thousands of dollars from the promotor’s pockets.
More than that, Minniefield says Black deposited his $45k payment check, even though he never showed up to earn the money. So, the promotor drew up his complaint in a legal document, which TMZ obtained.
In the papers, Minniefield alleges that the “Codeine Dreaming” rapper signed a contract to perform early last year (Feb. 28, 2017). Black was paid, and everything was ready to go.
The contract was unfulfilled however, as the rapper was arrested for violating his probation that same day.
An insider told TMZ that Minniefield rescheduled Black for another date, but he never showed up for that either. According to the suit, the promotor is suing for the $45k he paid Kodak.
Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time Black has left a promotor high and dry. Promotor Nicholas Fitts had a similar experience with the rapper, claiming Kodak never performed in New York on March 3. Fitts explained this in a legal letter from his lawyers to Black’s.
Unsurprisingly, Black was in jail on March 3. His appearance was rescheduled for April 15 and April 29, but Black was in jail on those dates too. The rapper violated his probation after going to a strip club.
Similarly to Minniefield, Fitts wants his money from various booking fees — about $123k — returned to him.
