As many of you know last weekend Kodak Black was arrested before he could even hit the stage at “Rolling Loud.” It turns out, Kodak was planning on using the check from his performance to help honor the legacy of a victim from the Parkland School Shooting.
According to The Blast, Kodak planned on taking his money from the performance to help start a scholarship fund in honor of Meadow Pollack, who passed away last year in the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
Kodak invited her brother, Hunter Pollack down to the festival, and he planned on announcing the scholarship while he was on stage. Unfortunately, he was not able to make that announcement due to his arrest. Also, because he didn’t perform, he also wasn’t able to collect his check from Rolling Loud.
Nonetheless, Kodak’s lawyer, Bradford Cohen says, “Kodak still intends to fund a scholarship in her memory.”
Cohen also said to the site, “Kodak was very disappointed that he couldn’t make something he thought was going to be very special happen at Rolling Loud. We spent weeks trying to coordinate the surprise in Meadow Pollack’s memory.”
Hunter Pollack took to Twitter to confirm the news and said:
When rapper @KodakBlack1k found out Meadow was a fan of his music, Kodak and his team contacted me about how they can help. He not only planned on starting a scholarship fund, but also offered to pay for the funeral of Hero Kendrick Castillo. https://t.co/SkhPjO0zmY

It’s great to see despite his legal troubles, Kodak is still using his platform for positivity.
