While Netflix Tiger King subject Joe Exotic team is running up $10,000 tabs in Trump hotels in efforts to ignite a presidential pardon, embattled rap star Kodak Black is willing to stretch his bank account a tad bit further for his freedom.
Something to the tune of seven-figures.
“If The President Them Free Me, I’m Gonna Spend 1 million on Charity with The First Year I’m Out,” his official Instagram wrote on Friday (November 27). “That’s On Everything!!”

In the United States, it’s customary for lame-duck presidents to pardon — or expunge — non-violent offenders’ prison sentences in accordance with the Constitution’s Article II, Section 2, Clause 1. So far, Donald Trump has pardoned his former national security advisor Michael Flynn after he was convicted for making false statements to the FBI.
The 23-year-old Kodak is currently serving nearly four years in Kentucky’s United States Penitentiary Big Sandy after pleading guilty to felony gun possession in October 2019. All his pleas for clemency have been unsuccessful so far.
However, his presidential request is far from the first time he’s displayed acts of kindness from behind bars. In March, he donated school supplies and technological upgrades for Broward County Florida students disenfranchised by the COVID-19 pandemic. And earlier this week, he ponied up $15,000 for Pompano Beach families’ Thanksgiving meals.
