“I apologize this happened, and I’m hopeful we can all move forward,” Kodak Black said to the girl over a virtual stream of the hearing, the AP noted.

Kodak Black commented on the sentencing on his Twitter account Wednesday.

“5 yrs later … both us just wanted to get this shit over wit AND I ain’t have to come off no money,” he wrote.

The teenage girl first accused Kodak Black of assaulting her in a hotel room after a show he performed in Florence in 2016. The girl reported the attack to a school nurse at the time, according to the AP.

Kodak continued to deny that he ever raped the girl on social media.

“My heart goes out to all the girls out here getting raped and shit FORREAL , But I Ain’t Did That Shit,” he wrote.
