Embattled rapper Kodak Black has been sentenced to nearly four years behind bars for federal weapons charges. 'I do take full responsibility for my mishap'.

Black - whose legal name is Bill Kapri - pleaded guilty in October that he falsified information on an application to purchase pistols on two occasions in Hialeah.

In May, hours before he was set to appear on stage at the Rolling Loud music festival at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, he was arrested.

Kodak Black will remain in jail.

Before his sentence was handed down, Kodak accepted responsibility for his crimes. "I don't punish them for that, but you've been doing stupid things since you were 15".

Assistant U.S. Attorney Bruce Brown stated in court "a rival rap artist was the intended target". A correctional officer on duty intervened in the fight and maced both inmates.

What do you consider of Kodak's sentence?

One of the guns Black purchased retailed for over $2,000 and was later found at the scene of an attempted shooting with a live round in the chamber and Black's fingerprints on it. While buying the guns, he wrote down an incorrect Social Security number and marked "no" on the sections of a federal form that asked if he was ineligible to buy a gun. He has had several previous arrests.

Kodak also still has other pending criminal cases. In April, the Associated Press reported that he had been charged with first-degree criminal sexual conduct - and faces a maximum sentence of 30 years - for allegedly assaulting a high school student after a concert in Florence, S.C.

"This is going to be the longest sentence that he's going to get in his career, hopefully his life", noted Brad Cohen, Kodak's defense attorney. The court heard he was alleged to have beaten up a prison guard while awaiting sentencing.

Black originally pleaded not guilty to charges and was released on $550,00 bond and house arrest but federal prosecutors appealed the decision resulting in the Expeditiously rapper being incarcerated without bond.
