Volatile and oft-jailed rapper Kodak Black got slapped with a half-million dollar lawsuit while jailed on federal violations.

Obviously, a concert promoter knew it was the right time to serve papers on Black for skipping out on agreed-upon concert performances. According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Nicholas Fitts hired a process server to give Black the news on the lawsuit that was filed against the rapper last month.

Black has been in jail since he was snatched up by federal agents at the Rolling Loud Festival in suburban Miami in early May. He was denied bail and has to sit and wait for his next court appearance after agencies from the U.S. Department of Justice took Kodak into custody for filing a false application to buy firearms as a convicted felon.

He is already facing 10 years for that charge, not to mention the 30 years he’s facing if convicted for allegedly raping a South Carolina high school student. And there is also the issue of Black getting arrested at the US-Canadian border after agents found weapons and weed in his SUV.

The concert promoter wants upward of $500K because Black allegedly did not show up for a concert that he and Fitts agreed upon and signed on from March 3, 2017, in New York.

Fitts, the lawsuit states, gave Black second and third chances to make up the concert, but the concert promoter accuses the rapper of blowing those off as well.
