While behind bars, it looks like Kodak Black is set on becoming a better man.

This weekend, in a new post, the rapper revealed that he has officially earned the diploma for which he was prepping, writing in a caption, “I just received my high school diploma today and although it is a big accomplishment for me I am yearning for more. I appreciate my teachers Mr. Williams and Mr. Ward for those times when I would get frustrated you worked diligently to make sure I had the right materials and was ready for this big day.

Such charges were eventually dropped, and according to the Sun Sentinel, Kodak will be home as early as September after striking a plea deal.
