Rapper Kodak Black arrested; Lil Wayne bows out of show

The 21-year-old rapper, whose real name is Bill Kapri, was taken into custody shortly before his set at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, according to the U.S. Marshals office.

As per XXL, the rapper was scheduled for the 11pm slot Saturday night, but two hours prior he went to Twitter to announce he'd be a no-show.

Rapper Lil Wayne cancelled his performance at Rolling Loud, Saturday night. "I do not and will not ever settle for being policed to do my job and give you guys a great show". "I will be at Story tonight for the afterparty and you kan katch me on tour with my bros Blink 182 this summer!"

Bradford Cohen, criminal defense attorney for Kodak Black has spoken out for the first time since the South Florida native was arrested while en route to perform at Rolling loud Miami.

The I'm The One rapper wasn't the only one to miss his set.

Most recently, Black was arrested last month on drug and weapons charges as he crossed from Canada into the USA near Niagara Falls, New York. The statement didn't elaborate.

According to the Miami-Dade police department, Kodak was taken into custody at the stadium by not only Miami-Dade's police but also federal agents from the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and U.S. Marshals, who will spearhead the investigation.

Black is being booked into the Federal Detention Center in Miami.

The ATF, Miami-Dade Police Northside Gang Unit, and U.S. Marshals were all involved in his arrest.

Another star to bail on the festival was Lil' Wayne, 36, who just released his latest album following a long delay amid a court battle with Birdman and his record label.
