The rapper, who goes by the name Bill K. Kapri, had previously been arrested on drugs and weapons charges when he tried to enter the US from Canada in April. U.S. Marshals explained the arrest was made following "an extensive investigation conducted by the U.S. Marshals, ATF and Miami-Dade Police Department's North Side Gang Unit".

Black will be charged with state and federal firearms violations.

Although the incident that prompted his arrest is now not known, he will face both federal and state firearm charges.
