Kodak Black’s attorney is furious with Miami police officers for allegedly leaking a photo of the rapper in jail.
Kodak Black black is currently in a Miami detention center awaiting a court hearing where he will know if he will be granted bail. The Florida rapper was arrested on Saturday in Miami by federal agents and Miami PD, who charged him with federal and state weapons charges. A photo of Kodak in handcuff sitting in jail has since been circulated on social media, and his attorney Bradford Cohen is furious about it.
The photo at the heart of contention is not a mugshot, but a full body photo that appears to be taken with a cellphone. Cohen is now saying that police officers took the photo and circulated it to the media. “I think the actions of the [police] in taking a photo of him in the police station in handcuffs and selling it or giving it to WSVN is a disgusting display of unprofessionalism,” Cohen told the Sun Sentinel.

“Its amazing that @MiamiDadePD thinks this is appropriate to send a picture of an individual in custody in the police station to a reporter? Disgusting behavior #KodakBlack, Cohen wrote on Twitter.
“Miami always following the rules taking unauthorized pictures of individuals in custody to send to the press for a little pocket change,” Cohen added in a tweet in response to reporter Brian Entin who tweeted out the photo on Saturday.

Beyonce Taps Blue Ivy, Jay-Z, Kendrick Lamar For ‘Lion King’ Album Tracklist
The tracklist for the Beyoncé curated “Lion King” album was revealed, and Blue Ivy is the star.
Lion King: The Gift will be released this Friday along with the debut of the live-action film in which megastar Beyoncé Knowles-Carter plays the role of Nala. Beyoncé recently announced that she would be blessing us with an album to go along with the film, and released the first single, “Spirit,” last week.
The rest of the tracks were announced as well as the many artists that are featured including Bey’s husband Jay-Z himself, and their 7-year-old daughter Blue Ivy Carty. Blue accompanied her parents at the American Lion King premiere and stopped the internet with her pantsuit outfit that coordinated with her momma’s.
Among the artistes on the project includes Kendrick Lamar, Pharrell, Wale, Tierra Whack, Wiz Kid, and of course Childish Gambino, who also stars in the Lion King live-action movie.
The soundtrack was produced by Queen Bey herself where she incorporates several African artists. Beyoncé told ABC News that she used this moment to create “a love letter to Africa.”
“I wanted to make sure that we found the best talent from Africa and not just used some of the sounds and did my interpretation of it,” she said. “I wanted it to be authentic to what is beautiful about the music in Africa.”
Mrs. Knowles-Carter said she incorporated original drums and chants from the Motherland and mixed it with American sounds to create their own genre.
“I feel like the soundtrack, it becomes visual in your mind. It’s a soundscape. It’s more than just the music, because each song tells the story of the film,” she said.
It has been a little over a year since we got new music from Bey when she and Jay-Z dropped their joint album, “Everything Is Love” in June 2018.
A behind-the-scenes special with the entire cast of the Lion King hosted by Good Morning America’s Robin Roberts will air Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.

Drake Sued By Woman Claiming She Sustained Brain Injury At His Concert
Drake is getting sued by another female.
The good thing for the Canadian rapper is that this lawsuit not related to any alleged sexual misconduct, but the bad news is that he is getting sued. Amanda Giovacco, 24, of Staten Island, filed a lawsuit against Drake claiming that she received brain injuries at his concert at Madison Square Garden in August 2016 when someone threw a beer bottle that hit her in the head. She is also suing Madison Square Garden and Live Nation claiming negligence in allowing the crowd to get raucous, Page Six reported.
“Amanda Giovacco, was violently struck by a beer bottle that was thrown while attending the Drake concert, was maliciously and without just cause provocation, subjected to a battery,” her lawsuit claims.
Giovacco argued in her lawsuit that the venue was negligent when they allowed vendors to serve “excessive amounts of alcohol” to partygoers and that the venue was overcrowded with inadequate security. She accused the venue of improperly serving partygoers beer in glass bottles instead of plastic containers, one of which hit her in the head causing permanent damages.
The 24-year-old female also claimed that Drake has a history of violence at his concerts and that Live Nation and Madison Square Gardens didn’t take enough steps to ensure that the venue was safe. She claimed that she “sustained a traumatic brain injury and seizures,” which derailed her dreams of going to medical school.
Drake has not yet responded to the lawsuit.
