On Friday night, Kodak Black claimed that he had been badly beaten while behind bars in Kentucky.
The rapper whose real name is Bill Kapri claims that seven guards at USP Big Sandy, a high security federal prison in Kentucky repeatedly struck him in the head with a metal object while he was handcuffed. Shockingly, Kodak even claims that one of the officers “flicked his genitals” and chastised him, saying “You’re not so gangster now, you’re gonna need bigger balls to survive.” Now, the rappers legal team is demanding an investigation into the beating.
Bradford Cohen, Kodak’s lawyer is asking the Justice Department and the FBI to conduct a full investigation, requesting that Big Sandy preserve all video evidence related to the incident.
“A 22 year old man serving approx 2 years more for a nonviolent crime is in a max pen. 1100 miles from his family and lawyers. This is true injustice. Not to mention when he was under the influence of an unknown substance during the incident in Miami 2 weeks before his sentencing on the paperwork case.”
This is not the first time that Kodak has reported being subjected to harsh conditions behind bars.
“They are strategically killing me slowly in here. I have been humiliated over and over again. I am highly disappointed in the way they have treated not only me, but all the other inmates in this facility.” he said in an Instagram post back in January.
Back in October, Kodak found himself in trouble when he allegedly grabbed a corrections officer’s testicles before being sprayed with mace and restrained by prison guards. The staff member had to undergo surgery as a result of his injuries. Witnesses claimed that Kodak appeared to be under the influence of an unknown substance when the fight broke out at FCI Miami in October.
Kodak is currently serving 46 months on weapons charges. He is scheduled to be released on August 14th, 2022.
Last week, the “No Flockin” rapper asked to meet with Donald Trump to discuss a “brilliant idea” that he had.
“This ain’t got nothing to do with my wrongful conviction. If it’s not worth anything you can kill me!”
As of yet, Trump has not accepted Kodak’s meeting proposal.
