The 22-year-old rapper was sentenced to two counts of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon based on a gun that was found on him during his initial arrest and the gun which he attempted to purchase using false details.

According to reports, prosecutors claim that the gun Kodak Black purchased was used in a shooting and the second charge was brought because convicted felon's are reportedly not allowed to be found in possession of a weapon.

Hitting out at the surprise new charges, Kodak Black's lawyer Bradford Cohen took to social media and wrote "This is what happens when the government feels like they lost when a young man [gets] 46 months on a filing a false document."

He went on to add, "Miami has charged him with the purchase of the weapons, because of a little rarely known law if you had a juvenile prior you can't possess a weapon until you are 24. The Miami case will be dealt with very soon."
