Sorry, ladies. Kodak Black has been taken off the market by a fellow "rapper" named Mellow Rackz.

The ex-con, who was recently released from prison, announced his surprise engagement on Instagram.

According to a social media post, Kodak arranged for a plane to fly by her home with the message "Might as well marry me Melody. I love u" on the back.

A video shared by Rackz on social media showed the plane, Kodak holding a box containing a giant diamond ring, and then Mellow wearing the ring as she hugged her husband-to-be.

The 19-year-old also confirmed she was engaged by sharing a picture of herself and Black, government name Bill Kapri, swapping spit on Instagram. She captioned the image: "Mrs. Kapri. I said yes."

Although she is reportedly a rapper, there are no YouTube videos of her music, nor does she have any singles on Spotify or any other streaming service.

Her Instagram account is stocked with photos of her showing off jewelry and handbags with no source of steady income.

In one typo-filled post, she wrote: "Before you speak on me that I'm self-made been touched ms and I purchased all my jewellery and I purchased all jewellery, 230k on the patek, 80k on my AP, 100k on my neck [sic]."

She continued: "I own three cars, I'm 19 years old. I don't need nobody for s**t. You got a problem, talk to god abut it."

The engagement news comes as a shock to fans. Just last week he was wooing rapper JT of City Girlz.

He allegedly bought JT an $80,000 Patek wristwatch and a room full of handbags and roses on Valentine's Day.

Kodak Black is a free man after former President Donald Trump commuted his 46-month sentence to time served on Jan. 20.

Rappers Lil Wayne and Kodak Black were granted pardons by Trump on his last day in office.

Black, government name Bill Kapri, received a commutation of his 46-month sentence for falsifying information on federal forms to buy firearms in 2019.

Black made headlines last year when he tweeted that he would donate $1 million to charity if Trump released him from prison early.

"If The President Them Free Me, I'm Gonna Spend 1 million on Charity within The First Year I'm Out. That's on Everything," he tweeted on Nov. 27, 2020.

Apparently, "everything" meant nothing to Kodak. He quietly deleted the tweet within hours of his release from an Illinois prison on Jan. 20.

When social media users called Kodak out for deleting the tweet, his lawyer, Bradford Cohen, said told TMZ the tweet wasn't a good idea to begin with.

"A statement promising something for something in exchange is not appropriate and although Kodak has always given to charity his whole career and will continue to [give to] charity, not in exchange for anything. Some think this is a story. It isn't."

He called out writers who criticized Kodak for going back on his promise: "Instead of harping on a young black man and how much charity he does, why don't we take a look at the amount of charity the writers of these articles do?"

Cohen also noted that Kodak donated $150,000 to charity in the the 5 days since he's been out of prison.

"Last week, Kodak pledged $100k to setting up a scholarship fund in the name of Meadow Pollack. The week before he donated $50k to barstool fund to help small businesses. That's $150k and he's been out 5 days."

Kodak Black was released from a federal prison in Illinois after being pardoned by former President Donald Trump on his last day in office.

Black tweeted his thanks to Trump on Wednesday: "I Want To Thank The President @RealDonaldTrump For His Commitment To Justice Reform And Shortening My Sentence. I Also Want To Thank Everyone For Their Support And Love. It Means More Than You Will Ever Know. I Want To Continue Giving Back, Learning And Growing. @DanScavino."

But according to reports, prosecutors in South Carolina are preparing to pursue the rapper on a felony charge of first-degree criminal sexual conduct.

Ed Clements, the 12th Circuit Solicitor in Florence County, tells TMZ that he filed a retainer against the rapper and plans to "aggressively" pursue Black, whose legal name is Bill Kapri.

Trump commuted Black's 46-month sentence for making a false statement on a federal document to purchase a gun in Florida. Convicted felons can't purchase firearms, and pardons for a federal crime have no impact on state cases.

Prosecutors in S.C. claim Black forced himself on an 18-year-old girl in a hotel room after a Feb. 2016 concert, allegedly raping her and biting her neck and right breast, according to legal docs obtained by TMZ.

Black's attorney in S.C., Beattie Ashmore, tells TMZ, "Aggressively prosecute? It's been four years. That speaks volumes. Kodak was on bond and on tour for two years before his federal case even began. Ed's a very fine and experienced prosecutor and I look forward to once again speaking with him about this case. It's been awhile."

Black faces up to 30 years in state prison, if convicted.

Lil Wayne and Kodak Black were granted pardons by President Donald Trump on his last day in office.

Wayne, real name Dwayne Carter, received a full pardon on the federal weapons charge he pled guilty to in December.

Black, government name Bill Kapri, received a commutation of his 46-month sentence for falsifying information on federal forms to buy firearms in 2019.

Black made headlines last year when he tweeted that he would donate $1 million to charity if Trump released him from prison early.

"President Trump and his administration have been tireless advocates on behalf of the African-American community," Bradford Cohen, attorney for both rappers, told Rolling Stone in a statement. "These pardons are a perfect example of this administration following up on its reforms and commitments."

The pardons were granted on Tuesday night - Trump's final full day in the White House before Joe Biden takes over as POTUS.

Among Trump's list of 143 pardons and commutations is Death Row Records co-founder Michael "Harry-O" Harris who served 32 years in prison for attempted murder and drug trafficking charges.

"That's great work for the president and his team on the way out," said rapper Snoop Dogg who quietly worked with the Trump administration for Harris' release. "They did some great work while they was in there, and they did some great work on their way out. Let them know that I love what they did."

Trump also commuted the prison sentence of former Detroit mayor Kwame Malik Kilpatrick.

Kilpatrick will walk out of prison a free man after serving nearly 8 years of his 28-year sentence for bribery, racketeering, extortion and fraud charges.

Kilpatrick, 50, cannot hold public office for 20 years after his conviction.

"Tiger King" star Joe Exotic will not be released from prison where he is currently serving a 22-year sentence for masterminding a murder-for-hire plot against rival Carole Baskin.

Exotic was so confident he'd be granted a pardon that he booked a limousine to wait on standby outside the prison walls if his pardon was granted.

President Donald Trump may grant 100 pardons and commutations before his term as 45th president of the United States officially ends at 12:01 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 20.

Rappers Lil Wayne, born Dwayne Carter Jr., and Kodak Black, real name Dieuson Octave, may be on Trump's list of 100 pardons that are set to be announced today, Jan. 19.

A source told Fox News that the announcement will likely come Tuesday afternoon, but there is a slight chance the Trump administration will wait until Wednesday morning to make the announcement.

In December 2020, Lil Wayne, 38, pleaded guilty to gun possession by a convicted felon and drug charges stemming from an arrest at a Florida airport in January 2020.

Former "Tiger King" star Joe Exotic is so confident that Trump will favor him with a pardon, that a limousine is waiting outside the prison walls to pick him up on Tuesday.

The 57-year-old former zoo owner and animal trainer is serving a 22-year sentence for animal cruelty and for plotting to kill his rival Carole Baskin.

Trump, 74, may also pardon his close friend and former advisor Steve Bannon, 66, who pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and one count of conspiracy to commit money laundering.

Despite an aggressive campaign by WikiLeaks and Trump supporters asking Trump to pardon WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, the president is not expected to pardon him.

It also isn't clear if rapper Kodak Black, 23, is on Trump's list of pardons, although a source previously said Trump was considering him for one.

The troubled rapper was sentenced to serve more than three years in prison on weapons charges in 2019.

President Donald Trump has 12 days left in office before he departs Washington, DC for good.

It is customary for outgoing presidents to issue pardons for friends, non-violent inmates and VIPs who are convicted but awaiting sentencing.

According to Bloomberg.com, Trump is considering pardoning rappers Lil Wayne and Kodak Black before he leaves office.

Rapper Lil Yachty and Baltimore Ravens star Lamar Jackson have pleaded with Trump to pardon Kodak Black, 23, who is serving 46 months in prison on firearms charges.

Lil Wayne, who pleaded guilty to firearm possession in December, is awaiting sentencing later this month. He faces 10+ years in prison if Trump doesn't come through with a presidential pardon.

Wayne was detained at a Miami airport in December 2019, after agents found a loaded gun, cocaine and opioids in a Coach bag on Weezy's private jet.

Wayne shocked his fans by announcing he was endorsing Trump in the November 2020 election. The rapper paid the price for his political affiliation: in addition to losing followers and friends, Weezy lost his girlfriend, Denise Bidot.

Trump will announce his list of pardons on January 2019, after clearing his things out of the White House.

Trump's first round of 26 pardons in December included his friends Roger Stone, Paul Manafort and Charles Kushner.

In addition to Kodak and Weezy, Trump may issue a pardon for himself -- just in case he faces charges after he leaves office. A sitting president can't be arrested or charged with a federal offense.

Incarcerated rapper Kodak Black hopes to work with President Donald Trump on his platinum plan. The Florida native became the latest rapper to hop on the Trump Train.

Rappers Kanye West, 50 Cent, Ice Cube, Lil Wayne and Lil Pump have all expressed interest in Trump's platinum plan that promises economic recovery, jobs and funding for new businesses in the Black community.

Kodak, who was recently transferred to an Illinois prison for his safety, tweeted: "What do you think of the platinum plan? @bradfordcohen sent it to me and I read it, this is what the community need... more ownership. That plan is right! I want to help with justice reform when I am out as well. @realDonaldTrump #justicereform #prisonreform."

The 23-year-old rapper pleaded with Trump to reduce his sentence in September, without success. He was sentenced to 46 months in prison in 2019 for allegedly falsifying documents to purchase a gun.

Incarcerated rapper Kodak Black showed his appreciation and love for his attorney by gifting his "father figure" a brand new truck.

The "Zeze" rap star, real name Bill K. Kapri, is still serving time for federal weapons-related charges, but he won’t face additional time behind bars thanks to his father figure and legal representative, Bradford Cohen.

Kodak decided to treat Cohen to a belated Father's Day surprise, and sent him to his local Chevy dealership to pick up a special delivery - a 2020 Chevy Z71.
 

Kodak made sure the truck was fully paid for in advance, and he shared a snap of Cohen posing next to his new ride on Instagram.

In the accompanying caption, he revealed Cohen proved to be so much more to him than just an attorney, writing:

"Anyone Can Be A Daddy But Everyone Cant Be A Father Calling You My Lawyer Would B Disrespectful. God Put You In My Life & You've Been A Father Figure To Me. Happy Belated Fathers Day and Happy Belated Birthday Pops . I Love You."

Cohen responded to the heartwarming post by vowing to continue "going the extra mile" for Kodak and all of his clients, revealing he would be making a donation in the rapper's name to the criminal justice reform non-profit, The Innocence Project.

News of Kodak's generous gift comes two months after Cohen managed to convince Florida prosecutors to drop charges relating to the same 2019 incident the rapper is already serving a 46-month sentence for - falsifying information on federal forms to purchase three firearms in Miami.

If the deal hadn't been reached, Kodak could have faced an additional 15 years in prison. Instead, the 23-year-old rapper will complete a 500-hour drug treatment course.

Everyone has something they will gladly fight you for. T.I.'s middle son, King Harris, tells Complex.com he fought in a school bathroom over something near and dear to his heart: his family pride.

A viral video shows the 15-year-old high schooler brawling with a boy in a bathroom while girls and boys looked on (maybe it was a unisex bathroom?)

The video shows King holding his own against the other boy. King walked into a hard right but he shook it off and proved he is his daddy's son.

"I can't tell you all that happened... basically... we fought," King tells Complex.com.

"This dude hit me one time, one time! It looked like he hit me a couple of times, but on God, you don't see nothing on my face. I still look light-skinned, no bruises, one bruise right here. That's all you see on me, no other bruises. Therefore, he hit me one time!"

So what was King fighting a kid over? King tells Complex the fight was over a Kodak Black Sniper Gang hoodie.

Kodak Black, who was transferred from a Miami prison to a facility in Kentucky, has beef with King's father, rapper T.I. Harris, 39. Kodak is serving 46 months in prison on weapons possession charges.

King is T.I.'s son with singer and reality TV personality Tameka "Tiny" Harris, 44.
