Kodak Blackis headed overseas to make bank, but in asking permission to do so … he told the judge he plans to donate a big chunk of his earnings to charity.
According to legal docs, obtained by TMZ, Kodak says he needs to travel to Dubai to perform a concert next month and make some paid appearances as well.
In the docs, which the court approved, Kodak says he’d be in Dubai from March 28 to April 3 … adding he’d be traveling with his security team and music producer.
In his motion to travel for work purposes, Kodak points out he’s been allowed to travel domestically for work and claims he’s been keeping his nose clean lately.
Kodak stated if he were given permission, he plans to donate 10% of his earnings in Dubai to charity.
The rapper’s attorney, Bradford Cohen, tells TMZ … a prominent businessman invited Kodak to Dubai for paid appearances at jewelers, nightclubs and exotic car dealerships, plus a concert.
Kodak’s attorney says his client already picked out where he wants to donate at least some of his Dubai earnings … the college funds of the children of 2 Pennsylvania State Troopers who were recently killed by a suspected drunk driver. Cohen says he’s reached out to the PA State Police Association to try and set up a donation.
Kodak was sentenced to 36 months probation in January 2021 — all stemming from the same gun case in which former President Trump commuted his sentence — leaving his supervised release intact.
