About two weeks after being pardoned by former president Donald Trump and regaining his freedom, the first photos of Kodak Black surfaced online and began making the rounds on social media on Friday (February 5).

The Project Baby looks much slimmer than his usual huskier frame since being released from prison. Kodak grew out his hair, added another forehead tattoo and looks to have possibly purchased a new puppy as a welcome home gift.

The Florida native also made a trip to celebrity jeweler Johnny Dang, where he reportedly picked up a Sniper Gang ring, iced out his Presidential Rolex and a new set of grills to celebrate.
“Welcome home, @kodakblack good to zee you home man and work with you,” Dang captioned a video post on Instagram alongside Kodak. “We do too many crazy new 1 of 1 pieces tonight.”

The 23-year-old was behind bars for nearly two years after being arrested in May 2019 for allegedly falsifying documents when purchasing firearms. His 46-month sentence was cut short when Trump came to the rescue and pardoned him last month after promising to donate $1 million to charity. He’s since deleted the tweet. Kodak also received vocal support from many friends including Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson.
Kodak is still facing rape charges in South Carolina following allegations he sexually assaulted a woman after a concert in February 2016.
