According to TMZ, rapper Kodak Black personally donated and delivered air conditioning units to a Florida housing project in July, something that apparently did not sit well with the local Pompano Beach housing authority. Kodak’s effort to aid “elderly and underprivileged” citizens was instead met with a “cease and desist” letter from the organization, a legal document ordering an individual or business to stop alleged illegal activity.
In this case, the letter claimed that the rapper caused a disruption by playing loud music and shooting a music video, both of which Kodak’s lawyer Bradford Cohen vehemently denies. According to TMZ, the Housing Authority said, “Your actions have adversely impacted the Property’s residents’ right to peacefully enjoy the property,” an accusation that (if true) seems to pale in comparison to the good that would come from such an action.
Further, the H.A. also focused on the rapper having personally installed the AC units, a strange detail of which to call attention in the context of the accusations. Cohen swiftly fired back a written response addressing the accusation, calling the organization’s action to challenge such assistance during a heat wave and a 2 year pandemic sad and shameful. Cohen said that the only noise made as a result of the charity was from background music of a reasonable volume.
