Kodak Black wants approval to enter a drug rehab program while he’s serving his Florida prison sentence — but he could end up getting more than just clean and sober.
According to docs filed Monday in federal court, the rapper is asking the court to send him to a prison that offers the Residential Drug Abuse Program. The 500-hour program lasts 9 months and involves group therapy, as well as one-on-one treatment.
It also requires all participants to live in a separate unit from the general population — a pretty clear benefit to a celebrity rapper doing time.
The biggest fringe benefit, though, for Kodak could be shortening his sentence. Upon completion of the program, inmates can get as much as 12 months knocked off their prison bid.
It’s an interesting request from Kodak, who — as we first reported — claimed last week, someone in his current prison had drugged him, causing him to get involved last month in a prison brawl.
He’s serving 46 months right now on federal weapons charges, and still has to deal with a sexual assault case in South Carolina.
The judge still has to approve his rehab request.
