Kodak Black, whose real name is Bill Kapri, was driving a Cadillac Escalade with a temporary California registration and was about to cross the Lewiston-Queenston International Bridge when the police saw weed on him. Further inspection of the vehicle also led to the discovery of a Glock 9mm pistol which was undeclared by Black and his two companions.
A second car, a Porsche, was travelling with Black’s team and carried three other individuals. Inside the car, police found two loaded handguns, one weapon described as an “AK-style handgun with 30-round magazine” and more marijuana, TMZ reported.

The two passengers in the Escalade are facing a weapons charge.
The ‘Wake Up In The Sky’ rapper was arraigned in a town court and remanded to county jail. His bail was set at $20,000 cash or $40,000 bond.
