Kodak Black Buys 7,600 Notebooks for Low-Income Students
Kodak Black is trying to gain some points with the community by doing some good deeds. The rapper recently offered a hand to a 14-year-old Texas student to provide low-income kids with some necessary school supplies.
Kodak Black has been trying to make changes in his life by giving back to the community with some random acts of kindness. And cash.
According to TMZ, the 21-year-old rapper heard about a campaign created by 14-year-old Paige Cook, whose goal was to donate 7,600 notebooks and 60,000 pencils to students in the Cleburne Independent School District in Texas, and decided to help.
Bradford Cohen, Kodak's attorney, explained that the rapper picked up the tab for the notebooks, which amounted $12,500.
A majority of the district’s students come from low-income communities, which is why Paige started her cause last year, successfully collecting 40,000 pencils for the students.
However, because of her ambitious goal this year, she needed some help, and Black was happy to oblige.
This is the second public act of charity made by the Florida rapper in the past year.
In October, he donated $10,000 to Jack & Jill Children's Center a non-profit provider of early childhood education in Broward County, Florida.
Kodak’s philanthropism started last August when he was released from jail after serving seven months for several charges including grand theft of a firearm, possession of marijuana and neglecting a child.
At the time, his lawyer explained that Black was looking forward to “making a positive impact in the community” by becoming “more involved in charities across the country.”
However, the journey has been far from smooth for the rapper in the past months.
Last month, Kodak was arrested at the Canada-U.S Border on weed and gun-related charges and was released after posting a $20,000 cash bond.
Later, the FBI raided some of the tour buses at his concert at The Anthem. They found several weapons and arrested some people from Kodak’s entourage. However, all criminal charges were dropped because officials couldn't establish who the guns actually belonged to.
"I urge him to go educate himself and enlighten himself because if he knew better, he'd do better," T.I. said of Black.
Kodak is also facing a rape trial, in which he's accused of sexually assaulting a teenage girl. He’s set to appear in court in the following months and could face up to 30 years in prison if he's convicted.
