If you didn’t already know that Bill Kahan Kapri — better known by his rap name Kodak Black — is a genuinely good dude, you will after reading this story.
TMZ was among the first to report that the controversial rapper — love him or hate him — has made a big donation to a little girl that needs the money. Kodak Black took action after reading a story about Jennifer Sepot, a 27-year-old mother and Fort Lauderdale police officer who died last month from COVID-19 complications. Sepot left behind a two-year-old daughter.
After hearing about what happened, the famous rapper didn’t waste any time. Kodak Black reached out to his attorney, Bradford Cohen, and told him to make a hefty donation to make sure the little girl was taken care of. The story obviously hit a soft spot for Kodak, who battled the COVID-19 virus himself. Cohen explained that his client suffered from some of the worst symptoms a person with COVID-19 can have. Those include severe body aches, headaches, and difficulty breathing for nearly two weeks.
“Make sure that kid is straight,” Kodak Black told Cohen. “Pay for her college fund.”
According to reports, Kodak put down $20,000 to make sure that the little girl would have a chance at a college education.
Fans Impressed With Charitable Actions of Kodak Black
Meanwhile, fans on social media were grateful for Kodak Black and they were equally impressed by his charitable efforts. There are many people who love Kodak as a rapper, and there are plenty of people who criticize him for some of his past actions. But on Wednesday, everyone could get behind the young man’s actions.
“Good s— bro,” a Twitter user replied. “RIP the kid’s mom.”
“Not a fan of Kodak but I can respect that,” one person wrote alongside a hat-tipping gif.
“Kodak is the most charitable rapper,” another fan responded.
As for the Fort Lauderdale Fraternal Order of Police, they gave a sincere thank you to Kodak Black and everyone else who has donated to the Sepot family. They issued a statement to TMZ explaining as much.
“We are grateful to everyone who has donated to the Sepot family in memory of Jennifer. Her loss has had an immeasurable and lasting impact on our officers. The generosity by supporters has offered a degree of hope during a time in which support for law enforcement feels to be a waning movement.”
This isn’t the first time that Kodak has given back to those in need. As a matter of fact, back in July, the rapper spent more than $12,000 on air-conditioning units for residents in need in Florida. He went door-to-door, hand-delivering each unit to residents in the humid Florida heat. Many of those residents were brought to tears.
