Kodak Black was expected to be released from jail this week. But as his name was being ran through the system, courts found two extra warrants for his arrest. So he has to stay.

Sun Sentinel reports:

According to a Broward Sheriff’s spokeswoman, it was discovered during the process of releasing Black from the Broward Main Jail in downtown Fort Lauderdale after his court hearing Tuesday that the rapper had two active arrest warrants.

“One of them is a no-bond hold,” said Joy Oglesby. “At this point he’s still going to be in jail. He’s not going to be released.”

The 19-year-old Pompano Beach rapper, whose real name is Dieuson Octave, was sentenced to a year of house arrest and five years of probation by Judge Lisa Porter in a hearing in a Fort Lauderdale courtroom on Tuesday.

He was to be released after the hearing.

Now, with the discovery of the two active warrants, that won’t be happening.

The court on Tuesday was filled with supporters, and one Atlantic Records executive, Michael Kushner, told the court that Octave had a bright future as a recording artist.
