The former president Donald Trump granted the Florida rapper a pardon along with more than 140 others, including Rapper Lil Wayne.
On Friday night, Kodak Black made his first appearance in public after he was released from prison. He appeared at a Tampa Super Bowl party. The rapper looked completely unrecognizable. Fans were shocked when they saw him and many of them took to social media pages to speak out.
Definitely ain’t Kodak. Use your spiritual discernment here…the aura isn’t even the same b/c the spirit (disposition) isn’t. Cloning isn’t always strictly physical but in this case even his physical looks different fr fr https://t.co/1PSSNbgdam

The rappers’ appearance changed so much that fans were convinced that he was cloned by the government.

If there was really cloning technology I'm just gonna say I don't think they'd use it to clone Gucci Mane & Kodak Black.

Some fans also noticed that the rapper had a new eagle tattoo on his forehead, instead of the cross sign he previously had.
But others pushed back against the Kodak Black clone conspiracy theory, pointing out that the rapper looked so different only because he had lost weight in prison.
