Pompano Beach, Fl-(June 1, 2023)-Pompano Beach native Rapper Kodak Black is inviting the South Florida community to his second annual Kodak Black Day: Car Show Edition event on Sunday, June 11, 2023, from 12noon-6 pm at the Pompano Community Park(1660 NE 10th Street, Pompano Beach, FL 33060.
Car enthusiasts will have a chance to see some of the most impressive one-of-a-kind cars from across the nation. In addition, car show participants can compete for a cash prize and bragging rights! This highly anticipated family-centric event promises to kick summer into full gear with a curated kids zone, live performance by South Florida’s owned DTE-Dream Team Elite dancers, music and food, and arts and crafts from local artisans. Children under ten are free.
There will be a strict no-backpacks policy for those attending the event. Kodak Black is basking in the success of a few key milestone moments; his music was featured on the Fast X soundtrack; his fifth studio album Pistolz & Pearlz via Atlantic Records was just released, and his first-ever short film is screening in select cities.
In addition, fans are excited about seeing him on tour this summer with Lil Durk. He was raised by his Haitian mother, Marcelene, and grew up in Golden Acres, a public housing project in Pompano Beach. Kodak Black’s philanthropic spirit is known throughout the community as he knows firsthand the financial difficulties some face.
Kodak Black’s connection to his Haitian heritage and community runs deep. He and WMIB’s 103.5 The Beat radio personality Stitchiz and her non-profit organization Tu Es Belle will partner with 441 Nissan, West Palm Beach, to present a high school graduating student with a car at the Kodak Black Day event.
“We are excited to be able to present a car provided by 441 Nissan in West Palm Beach to a deserving high school student at this year’s Kodak Black Day. It was a long road to get to this point, but God is good and does answer prayers. The student has a high GPA and is active in his community. He will be so surprised. I can’t wait, says Stitchiz.
In 2021, former Broward Commissioner Dale Holness presented Kodak Black with a proclamation at a charity basketball game in Coral Springs, stating that June 11 would forever be Kodak Black Day. The proclamation spotlighted some of Kodak Black’s charitable work and professional accomplishments over the past years. Humbled by this gesture, Kodak Black committed to hosting a community event every June 11, which also happens to be his birthday.
“Kodak Black Day is for my community. I want them to come out and enjoy the day, check out some dope cars, and enjoy the food, music, and entertainment. This is my thank you to the community for sticking with me on my journey,” says Kodak Black.
Kodak Black gained initial recognition with his single “No Flockin,” released in 2014. His debut album, Painting Pictures, peaked at No. 3 on the U.S. Billboard 200 and included the Billboard Hot 100 top 10 single “Tunnel Vision. Attendees can purchase their tickets on Kodakblackday.com
