American rapper Kodak Black’s probation violation has been lifted after he completed a 90-day court-ordered rehab stint.

Black had violated the terms of his supervised release in his federal gun case early in the year after testing positive for marijuana and MDMA in two separate tests this past year.

After testing positive for marijuana in February and MDMA in August, he was ordered to complete a 90-day rehabilitation. Recently; he received permission to complete the final 30 days of his treatment at a facility in Florida, where doctors believe he will have a higher rate of success.

The now-sober robber, who is now focusing on his career, had a court hearing to reinstate his supervised release. His lawyer, Bradford Cohen, noted that the judge was happy with Kodak’s progress.

Cohen also said Kodak is now looking forward to making good music and will try to stay away from whatever would put him in harm’s way or trigger him to use again.

In 2019, Kodack Black was sentenced to 46 months in prison in 2019 following his conviction for making a false statement to buy a firearm. He was released halfway into his sentence after receiving a pardon from Trump on his last day in office.

However, four months after being granted a Presidential release, Black was back in court to face rape and sexual assault charges stemming from a 2016 incident in South Carolina. Entering into a plea deal, the rapper pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of first-degree assault and battery in a sexual assault case involving a young woman in a hotel room.

“I apologize to Miss [victim’s name] and am hopeful we can all move forward,” Kodak, whose full name is Bill Kapri, said in court. “I wish her the best in her life.”

In lighter news, Kodak Black announced in September that he is set to once again become a father as his girlfriend, Maranda Johnson, is pregnant with their first child, a daughter.
