    As part of his deal, Octave will no longer be on house arrest or probation after he leaves jail.

    Rapper Kodak Black, who was arrested earlier this year after a video showed people handling marijuana and a gun around an infant, will remain in a Florida jail until September.

    The 20-year-old rapper's attorney, Bradford Cohen, told the Sun Sentinel that Black, whose real name is Dieuson Octave, reached a deal with Broward County prosecutors Tuesday.

    Octave had been on house arrest in January when he was jailed on several felony charges, including child neglect and drug possession. A guest at his Pembroke Pines home live-streamed the video.

    The serious felony charges were later dropped, but Octave still faced charges of associating with people associated with criminal activity and driving with a suspended license.
